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 ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6sHd7JRHCM 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 Hellbound.ca 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

"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

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 ...

GREAT FALLS FUTURE TOUR DIARY

demian mr cool guy

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 ...
