We called the latest from Axeslasher a "straight-up thrash-terpiece" in a blurb on our Halloween must-haves list a few weeks back, but Anthology of Terror, Vol. 1 -- available here for a cool $6.66 -- is sick enough to warrant a bit more coverage. Thus, the following track-by-track, courtesy guitarist/vocalist Justin Lascelle... Mark of the Pizzagram I love intro riffs. "March of the SOD"? ...

STREAMING: Nausea “Cries of Pain”, from forthcoming album Condemned to the System

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, November 18th, 2013

NAUSEA

Courtesy of the good people at Willowtip, we've got a fierce, frantic and faceripping track premiere from Nausea's forthcoming LP, Condemned to the System. While Nausea have been grinding it out live over the past couple of years, showing up and throwing down at such shindigs as MDF and Bloodshed, they've hardly been prolific; Condemned to the System will be the LA death/grind quartet's first ...

STREAMING: Tad Morose “Revenant”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, November 18th, 2013

tadmorose_heavymetal_decibel_2013

Back in 1993, the least fashionable music---as far as extreme music is concerned---was heavy metal. Unless it was Iron Maiden, but they were also on the skids with Fear of the Dark. For Swedes Tad Morose, they had precious little chance of surviving the music climes of death metal, the nascent (and hyper-ascendant) black metal scene, the successes of doom metal (of the death metal variety), and ...

Year of No Light featured

In just two weeks, French sexies... uh... sextet Year of No Light will release their 3rd official full-length record, Tocsin, through Debemur Morti Productions.  Caught somewhere between bludgeoning metal bluster and chamber orchestra sound sculpture, Tocsin arrives three-and-a-half years after the band's last official studio album, Ausserwelt (though only a few months after their soundtrack ...

Any devoted reader of Decibel and the Deciblog knows that most of the folks here are passionate about grindcore and baseball. So there's no better way to mourn the end of the season and prepare for the long wait for spring training than a new Puig Destroyer track. Stream "First To Third" below -- it will take you about as long as running to first base. The album Wait For Spring will ...

Subrosa Photo 2 (Color) – DSC_5542-5 comp

I live a mere 2,200 miles due east of Salt Lake City, so needless to say I'm not too familiar with many musical happenings there (other than Gaza, RIP). Fortunately, Rebecca Vernon and the rest of SubRosa were more than happy to educate me about their hometown via the quintet's SLC music playlist. I'll let the guitarist/vocalist take it from here: "SubRosa is a product of the Salt Lake music ...

One of the downsides of the staggering amount of album formats these days is finding all the extra tracks. Fortunately, our friends in Hall Of Fame certified Monster Magnet (Dopes for Infinity) are sharing some of the extra goodies on their new album Last Patrol. Here's Dave Wyndorf on the bonus track "One Dead Moon," streaming below: "One Dead Moon is a break-up song, plain and simple. ...

EARTHLESS: “From the Ages” Track-by-Track Breakdown

If you haven't heard Earthless's From the Ages yet, you are missing out on the best instrumental psych jam album of the year. These guys don't NEED a vocalist; any singer would just get left behind, abandoned to float off in space forever. The members of the band were kind enough to give a track by track breakdown for us (which, admittedly, wasn't too hard, considering that there are only four ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack: Alaska’s Nott

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, free, interviews, listen On: Friday, November 8th, 2013

Nott shott

Because every day another band records another song.  Because 83% of those songs are unlistenable and you can’t be bothered to sift through the dreck.  Because metal is about not giving a shit and waking your own personal storm.  Because music is universal, expression is boundless, and even indie labels (whatever that means these days) don’t know everything, Decibel brings you Throw Me a ...
