Decibrity Playlist: Archspire

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Archspire

When Oli Peters takes his songs about "lucid dreaming, a monster made out of teeth, a king who creates duplicates of himself who then overthrow him, and a guy who feeds himself to his backyard pig" on the road (my favorite part of KSP's recent profile), he and his Archspire brethren tend to keep the traveling stereo tuned to the more extreme side of things. Well, at least until touring starts to ...

Doom Discovery: Suffer Yourself

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Friday, May 23rd, 2014

suffer yourself band

It takes a special band to spend twelve-and-a-half minutes slogging through a freaky-heavy doom bum-out called simply "Darkness," then decide there's just more to say on the issue and tuck in for another 14 minutes and call the result "Darkness, Part 2."  It's like being lost in a menacing forest devoid of all large predators but seething with terrifying nuance and insatiable subtlety, then ...

Decibrity Playlist: Cormorant

Back in early 2012, Chris Dick sung the praises of Cormorant's Dwellings. Since the band's recently released follow-up is yet another quality entry in its still nascent catalog, we asked Nick Cohon to tell us about some of the "darker country music" that he listens to (the guitarist is also rocking a Gov't Mule Dose shirt above, which, while neither dark nor country, must be mentioned). As he ...

INTERVIEW: Trans Am’s Phil Manley

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, interviews, listen On: Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Trans Am by Mike Seely - TransAm1

Trans Am have been around since the 90s, and in that time they've explored everything from post-rock to electronica and Krautrock. They've always had hard rock influences, but never more obviously than on their latest release, Volume X. As soon as we heard the stoner rock and thrash vibes of a few of the songs, we knew we had to find out what was up with that. Guitarist Phil Manley was kind ...

Sandrider: Preview of “Dogwater,” Non-T-Shirt Version.

We used to love Akimbo around these parts. I say used to, not because they suddenly betrayed their clangy, mathy roots for a combination of slick radio rock and Drake covers, but because they up and broke up. So, I guess in a roundabout way, we still love Akimbo even though the band doesn't really exist anymore. A few years ago, former Akimbo members Nat Damm (drums) and Jon Weisnewski ...

Vincibility is for Suckers: Exclusive Fucking Invincible Premiere!

fuckinginvincible_0323-1649-e1399557074432

Providence, Rhode Island-based FUCKING INVINCIBLE -- featuring faces that will be familiar to fans of Daughters, Dropdead, Soul Control, Sweet Jesus, etcetera -- gave themselves a lot to live up to with their chosen moniker, but, as the exclusive stream of "Ape As Man/Man As Ape" below ably demonstrates, these dudes have good reason to have confidence in that powerviolence swagger. The ...

STREAMING: God Macabre “Lost”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, May 19th, 2014

godmacabre_deathmetal_decibel_2014

Back in 2002, Relapse had the hairy balls to reissue a relatively unknown yet cult favorite in God Macabre's The Winterlong. This was well before labels X, Y, and Z got on the reissue bandwagon of unfurling low visibility releases like they were unmined gold. Anyway, organized with full consent of the band by ex-Relapse death metal curator Tom H., the 2002 reissue featured updated artwork ...

Stream New Nader Sadek Video!

NSadek VidPic

It's been three years, almost to the day, since Nader Sadek and an all-star cast of death metal notables released In the Flesh, a just-about-out-of-nowhere titan of an album that exorcised its creator's disgust with the Western petrol-centric economy and culture and the way it abuses life on Earth, both past and present. Last year, Sadek released both a DVD and CD recording of the album ...

Decibrity Playlist: Eyehategod (Part 2)

In celebration of Eyehategod's first full-length studio album in nearly a decade and a half, last week we shared five musical selections that frontman (and soon to be cover star) Mike IX Williams' listens to on his “stupid iPod in the filthy tour van.” As promised, here are the rest of his eclectic picks which, given the NOLA quintet's upcoming itinerary, you'll probably hear blasting from ...
