Korn Shifts Gears, Explores New Territory

By: shane.mehling Posted in: featured, listen, stupid crap On: Wednesday, September 28th, 2011


I was going to write what I hoped would be the definitive critique of the heart-stopping shit mountain known as Loutallica, but then I got this in my inbox: Korn announced today that they will release their tenth studio album, The Path of Totality on December 6. But this is unlike any Korn record. It's even unlike any record released before. Goddamnit! So the blood-starved Pimp Rock ...

OK, vinyl nerds, pay attention. What you're about to witness is a little teaser from the fellas in Skeletonwitch and their label Prosthetic Records. In case you haven't heard, Skeletonwitch will be releasing their fourth long-player, Forever Abomination, via Prosthetic on October 11 in North America. It'll be available in three different formats but the vinyl version is by far the coolest. Check ...

ANCIENT WISDOM: Senior citizens run the rule over Album of the Year shortlist

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, stupid crap On: Monday, September 19th, 2011


Yeah, I know what you're thinking, it's a bit early to start thinking about the album of the year. It's only mid-September. But such are publishing and album release schedules that we Decibel footsoldiers are mentally ensconced in winter, like, this year is so over. But the thing is, compiling a top 10 ten or top 20 is an absolute bitch; some years everything sounds great, and in others nothing ...

Metal Fit for Extinction

By: shane.mehling Posted in: featured, listen, stupid crap On: Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

3540292784_photo Let's not kid ourselves or spend too much time building up to what we're discussing here. Hevisaurus (read that name out loud) is a Finnish power metal band for children with members dressed like dinosaurs. As they stare out into the elementary-aged audience with their cold, dead, prehistoric eyes, my once cherished vision of Chuck E. Cheese's ...

Some of you are familiar with my now-eight-year-old son, Sam via the occasional Study Hall of Fame series here, here and here (the title of which is pretty ironic, because if you asked him what a study hall was, he’d have no clue as Sam is homeschooled). Those of you who follow Canada's may remember this post from the last time one of Sam’s favourite bands, pirate metallers, ...

You might have heard this but F.Y.I. Biohazard are hosting an open audition in the search for a replacement for vocalist/bassist Evan Seinfeld. This is great news. Seriously, folks, if you’ve ever apportioned serious mirror time to bicep curls while reeling off how many blocks there are to get to the subway, you should be getting yourself in front of a camera tout d’suite. Now, for what ...

How Far Would You Go?

I’ve done a lot for metal over the years. In an attempt to sport the longhair uniform, despite genetics handing my follicles a bum deal, I walked around looking like a frizzed out crackhead throughout most of the 80s. Rooms in my house are filled with records, CDs, magazines and not much else to varying degrees of familial disgust. I have managed to avoid getting a real job lo these many years ...

A Rick Perry Supporter Plays With Madness

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: featured, stupid crap On: Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011


"It takes balls to execute an innocent man." That appalling line (allegedly) uttered by a voter in support of Texas governor and now GOP presidential contender Rick Perry has dragged the infuriating, tragic case of Todd Cameron Willingham -- executed in 2004 for a deadly arson he almost certainly did not commit -- back into the national spotlight. Now, this sort of thing isn't typically ...

Memory Lane

By: j.bennett Posted in: bennett finally learned how to work the deciblog, featured, stupid crap, videos On: Monday, August 15th, 2011


When I heard Jani Lane of Warrant passed away last Thursday night, I immediately texted my attorney Juan Perez and recent Decibel cover artist Tom Neely, both of whom—like myself—are avid cock rock enthusiasts. Neely’s cogent response? "Too much cherry pie!” The details of Lane’s death hadn’t been revealed yet, but Tom was right, of course: the singer’s body was found at a Comfort ...
