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 ...

Tour diaries suck. Here's one from the future from Great Falls bassist/Decibel tell-it-like-it-isser Shane Mehling (not pictured, thank god). They will cover Sponge songs on request, but only from Rotting Pinata or Wax Ecstatic. Shudder before the insightfulness. Great Falls Future Tour Diary Wed, Aug. 3 - Baltimore, MD Fly in late and get picked up by our friend Cole, guitarist/singer ...

Best. Bathing Suit. Ever.

By: jeanne.fury Posted in: pic of the day, stupid crap On: Monday, August 1st, 2011

Thanks to MTV, the words Jersey Shore have become synonymous with glistening douchetards, making plenty of us Jersey natives extremely upset at the portrayal of our seaside haven. So it was a sight for sore eyes when I saw this most excellent of men's swimsuits while strolling the Asbury Park boardwalk this past weekend. It literally stopped me in my tracks and reminded me that the boardwalk ...

Wine Up – Beer Down

By: frank.lemke Posted in: featured, liver failure, stupid crap, uncategorized On: Thursday, July 28th, 2011


Alright, enough with the PBR and Bud already. It’s a bit juvenile to still be drinking beers like your in high school. Are you having another TV party tonight or what? You can still hit your wife with a chalice, so maybe it’s time to grow up some and sophisticate yourself with a nice bottle of merlot. (I like to pronounce the ‘T’ at the end. It’s less pretentious that way.) ...
