By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, July 25th, 2014

saturn_heavymetal_decibel_2014

Retro is cool. Retro is where the girls are at. Retro is where the dollars are at. If you're retro, you've got it made. Unless you're in the business of retro heavy metal. Then, you just get the girls. Just ask Swedes Saturn. With just a few strums of their throwback axes and bygone haircuts, they hook in the ladies. Actually, we have no idea about their womanizing abilities. But we do know the ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition II): Christopher S. Feltner

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Friday, July 25th, 2014

Me3

It’s been a good month for celebrating the noisier side of the extremely extreme.  All good things must end… though it’s hard to believe that we won’t be revisiting gritty, shadowy, unfettered sound in the future, if only here on the Deciblog. To round out the month of noise, we spoke to Virginia-based Christopher S. Feltner about his own journey through recordings and performance.  ...

Misery Index is no stranger to these playlists. In fact, we were in the midst of winter 2013 when bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton regaled us with "bleak tunes that recall those snowbound blizzards from yesteryear." This time around, guitarist Mark Kloeppel went in a totally different direction to get you in the know about "hard" jams. We'll let him take things from here: "'Hard' is a special ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Kaine’s “The Wanderer”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

kaine

Their name is Kaine and the song is called "The Wanderer," so the nerd in me wants to say that this UK band named themselves after the  classic TV series Kung Fu – but their name is spelled differently and also they look like they are about 16 and oh God I'm old. Anyway, there's some serious classic metal thunder going on here. Young or not, Kaine have clearly studied under the Masters of the ...

Decibrity Playlist: Goatwhore

For the past decade or so, Goatwhore has been one band that you can count on to put out quality release after quality release. The quartet's latest LP is yet another um, merciless, entry in its oeuvre. So to celebrate both the recent release of Constricting Rage of the Merciless and the start of the NOLA natives' run alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus and others on this year's Summer Slaughter ...

Hod wants to make sure you get their name right: "Hod is not an acronym. It is not H.O.D. It is Hod. Can we all get it straight now?" Yes, we can. We can also stream a new track from their forthcoming album Book Of The Worm. Give it a listen below and then find out more about the band and upcoming record here. ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Miasmal “Excelsior”

"Cursed Redeemer is in my opinion a bit rawer and more live-oriented than our previous stuff," pontificates Miasmal stringbanger Pontus to Metalship, "with a tad more rock 'n' roll thrown into the mix. I think you can hear that we've been playing a lot live since the first album, we have grown together a bit more musically as well. When we recorded the first album we had just played two live ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Cardinal Wyrm’s “Dreams of Teeth”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

PromoImage

One look at the chipper trio above should clue in any somewhat knowledgeable reader that Cardinal Wyrm play doom metal.  The Bay Area group definitely has the look of people that have seen some shit. This is the fun kind of doom, though! Theatrical and grandiose, closer to Rev. Bizarre, Violet Theatre, or even Bauhaus than Skepticism or Thou, Black Hole Gods draws the listener  in through its ...

Mutilation Rites Full Album Stream: Harbinger

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Monday, July 14th, 2014

MRites

My ears are ringing like mad. Last night at the Metro Gallery in Baltimore, I caught Mutilation Rites play a ripping set that could be called loud in the same understated way that a Boeing 747 landing on your face could be called loud.  Fuck.  Ing.  Loud.  The performance was enveloping, engulfing, overwhelming, and it was played in front of a red-lit curtain that gave the whole stage a ...

Real Time War: Exclusive Twitching Tongues Premiere!

Not a huge fan of live records? Me either. But Twitching Tongues actually kill it on World War LIVE, a venture into the format that serves the band's roiling, infectious Integrity-meets-old-school-Life-of-Agony sound shockingly well. Here's the cutesy official explanation... Recorded live in the Van Nuys stadium called THE PIT in front of twenty screaming fans, this is (not) a true ...
