deciblog - Vaporizer Logo

Those of you who pay rapt attention to the Throw Me a Frickin' Bone column might already have taken note of Vaporizer and the kind words I've bestowed upon their intense irascibility and how I gave their EP a nod as one of the top self-releases of last year. If you haven't already checked them out, or at least intend to, please do so - I even said "please" - as they are fully deserving of the ...

STREAMING: Junius “Battle In The Sky”

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, listen On: Thursday, January 23rd, 2014


I don't usually premiere tracks on here, but when I do, there are few bands I'd rather talk about than Junius. After spoiling us with excellent full-lengths in 2009 and 2011, these Massholes are finally returning with a collection of new recordings next month after a nearly two-and-a-half year break. Given that a few weeks still remain before you'll be able to hear the Days of the Fallen Sun EP ...

STREAMING: Hark “Palendromeda”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014


What does the word "Hark" mean? It means to "pay attention to". Who said Decibel never educates? Truth be told, whenever I hear the word "Hark" I immediately think of the song, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing". But there might be some deep-seated issues with church choir with that one. For the band Hark, the one from Wales, the one emerging from the ashes of cult heroes Taint, well, the name is ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Nashville Pussy’s “Pillbilly Blues”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

nashvillepussy (3 of 9)

Finally, a track premiere from a band whose name I can pronounce! It's not a name I can say in polite company, but, you know, baby steps. Hard to believe these guys have been slinging their unique brand of shitkicker punk for nearly 20 years, but here they are, on full-length number seven and still telling tales of drug binges, wild sex, and other redneck misadventures. Up the Dosage feels a ...

STREAMING: Monument of Misanthropy’s “Anger Mismanagement”

By: Sean Frasier Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, January 21st, 2014


Last time we heard from Monument of Misanthropy, they were charging towards the completion of their IndieGoGo campaign to launch their debut album Anger Mismanagement. And guess what? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Go high-five a fellow metalhead in celebration. High-fiving your own reflection in a mirror will do in a pinch. So what does the metal community receive for their support? Try this on for ...

STREAMING: Nocturnal Breed “Speedkrieg”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, January 20th, 2014


The last time lead Nocturnal Breed headman Kenneth Svartalv (aka S.A. Destroyer) ushered his forces into war was back in 2007, just as world financial systems were crumbling under their own gluttonous weight. Now, some seven long-ass years later, S.A. Destroyer returns with the Breed in tow and V. Fineideath replacing A. E. Rattlehead on riffs and six-stringer Axeman I. Maztor returning from ...

STREAMING: French sludge-metallers DRAWERS new self-titled album

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, January 17th, 2014


Ladies and germs, courtesy of the good people of Kaotoxin Records, it is our great honor to host this online premiere of Drawer’s self-tilted sophomore album. Drawers are a five-piece outfit from Toulouse, France, who play sludge or a variant thereof; Drawers is really just big-riffed, amp-worshipping metal. This is sludgish metal. Indeed, calling Drawers honest-to-God sludge kinda shows ...

STREAMING: Godhunter’s “Brushfires”

By: Posted in: featured, listen On: Wednesday, January 15th, 2014


For your streaming pleasure today we are premiering the track "Brushfires" from Arizona's Godhunter, a nasty hybrid of thrash and sludge. Preorder the album City Of Dust here from The Compound. Some details on the track follow the stream. Brushfires is an analogy for the divisiveness that embroils the political nature of mankind. In that political realm, when governments or corporations ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Soreption’s “Engineering the Void”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Soreption 2013

I'm pretty sure "Soreption" is a made up word. I think maybe it's a phonetic transcription of vocalist Fredrik Söderberg's shrieks. These dudes play seriously gnarly technical death metal to the level where you might need a physics degree just to headbang to it. You can hear them constructing the framework of the abyss as Engineering the Void runs its course, culminating in the title track – ...
