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 ...

Given that fall is about halfway over and the weather, at least on the East Coast, is getting frigid, we thought it was a good time to present our second ever season-specific playlist. While Chris Alfieri's "Song to Burn Leaves To: A New Englander's Fall Music Companion" compliments Torche's "Summer Fun" playlist quite nicely, Vattnet Viskar's debut full-length is a pretty good record to spin ...

STREAMING: Phuture Doom’s “Phuture Doom”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

phuture doom

It was basically inevitable, wasn't it? With the accelerated crossbreeding of black metal with every possible genre and subgenre (blackgrass metal!), it was only a matter of time before someone figured out that blast beats and hardstyle beats weren't really that far off from each other. Obviously there have been a lot of black metal/industrial hybrids, but it's rare that an electronica artist ...

Three years after a momentum-murdering robbery, Philadelphia purveyors of sublime sonic wizardry and nightmarish soundscapes Cleric are back, hitting the road for a long-delayed tour in support of the brilliant 2010 album Regressions. (Stream it here.) But wait! There's more! This morning Decibel is honored to premiere a brand new (and aptly titled) Cleric track, "Resumption," as well as a ...
