Decibrity Playlist: Ihsahn

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Ihsahn5179-Bjorn Tore Moen compressed

Ihsahn--a man who needs no introduction around these parts--has certainly not been bereft of musical ideas lately. He dropped his fifth solo album (coming a mere 16 months after its predecessor) earlier this week and is already talking about its follow-up. To celebrate the release of Das Seelenbrechen, which Adrien Begrand described in our latest issue as a "surprising and strangely satisfying ...

Streaming: Pentagram (Chile) — “The Apparition”

By: Posted in: featured, listen On: Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013


We have some streaming goodness available for the Deciblog faithful today. Please check out the new tune "The Apparition" from Pentagram (Chile) below. Frontman Anton Reisenegger said the following about the track: "'The Apparition' must be one of my favorite tracks on the album because it has this amazing early Slayer vibe. Haunting The Chapel is still my favorite Slayer record ever and was ...

That stark, black and white photo of a line of men dangling from nooses on the cover of No One Is Alone If No One Is Alive doesn't exactly paint Czar as a cheery band. They aren't, really – but they also don't sound as lifeless as one might expect.  they basically play noise rock, but in this case, the emphasis is on the "rock." While the lyrics and the overall vibe are not what one would ...

Monolithe: Full Album Stream!

Monolithe featured

Too many approval-stampers are content to shovel anything slow, synth-shrouded and packed with molasses-dark death growls into a funeral doom-shaped hole in the earth.  One self-important windbag (the one in charge of this Deciblog post) would suggest that “funeral doom” must actually beckon from the grave and whisper oh-so-reasonably that bathing with sharp objects is the last sane course ...

Decibrity Playlist: Earthless

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, October 17th, 2013


Dear Brent Burton or Scott Seward (I honestly can't remember which one of you it was): Thank you for introducing me to Earthless all those years ago, back when our magazine still had its original logo. Not only have I been able to spend the intervening time enjoying the trio's first two full-lengths and various live recordings, but I've been fortunate enough to witness the band's incredible ...

It's been more than 22 years since the UK hardcore act Satanic Malfunctions has released any music (Disgrace To Humanity, 1990). Decibel is proud to present a full album stream of the comeback Them, released by Selfmadegod and available for purchase here. After the stream check a quick q and a with drummer Ade.

Relapse Records release 26-track compilation as a free download

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, October 14th, 2013


Relapse could probably have found a stronger name for their 2013 autumn/winter sampler than, uhh, Relapse Sampler 2013. Cast your mind back when Earache were releasing their Grindcrusher sampler series, and Peaceville had the enigmatically titled Under the Sign of the Sacred Star; that was how you named a sampler. But that was back then, and nowadays Grindcrusher is (probably) an independent ...
