Two years ago, Aussie weirdos King Parrot's debut full-length, Bite Your Head Off, unloaded itself on that continent.  Candlelight Records then released the album Stateside late last year, and the band of screwy-grindy-thrash-loving dudes have been flapping back and forth between land masses to support their renewed new-act status. We had a chance to ask King Parrot about everything tour ...

Starting tomorrow, rejuvenated NWOBHM heroes, Satan make a return to North America for a series of tour dates that haphazardly criss-crosses the continent over the course of the next couple of weeks in support of their new live album, Live Sentence.

The Proselyte: The Deciblog Interview and Full Album Stream

Back in the day there were shiny things called songs. Albums were filled with good songs rather than two or three wankfests. Now, in the hands of the right band long songs can be potent (see: Sleep and YOB). But heavy songs that are infectious with less real estate are also a very good thing. One band doing songs right is The Proselyte from Cambridge, who mix pop with Decibel approved ...

Glenn Danzig's fame has never waned. But in today's constantly connected world he's stayed famous for the wrong reasons: getting very publicly knocked out after a backstage argument in 2004; suing his former bandmates and buying cat litter at the wrong place. It's easy to forget why people cared in the first place: Danzig wrote some of the best songs the American underground has produced, songs ...

While the news has had time to sink in with the passing of time, it was a big ol' shocker when Witch Mountain vocalist Uta Plotkin announced she was stepping away from her post after five years of fronting the Portland doom heroes. According to drummer Nathan Carson, he and the other members [guitarist Rob Wrong and bassist Charles "Charles Dingus" Thomas] received the disheartening news via ...

Denmark's Fossils are another impressive addition to the growing collection of killer two-man bands currently forming in the shadow of the continued absence of Lightning Bolt and the acceptance of the reality that the price of gas is never going to drop below $3 per gallon anywhere other than Indian reservations and south Texas. The duo of Tornby (bass) and Silkjaer (drums) has a new album called ...

Tomorrow begins the touring cycle for Winnipeg's tireless road warriors, KEN Mode in support of their forthcoming album, Success. The record itself isn't slated to be recorded until November, but after almost a year at home, the rest of the world can almost hear the itchin' in their britches to get back out on the blacktop for a few shows in-between all the lane divider counting. First up, ...

Raw Power is Coming to America Again! Why So Glum Chum?

raw power

In addition to holding the illustrious (or dubious) honour of being one of my personal favourite bands of all time, Italy’s Raw Power is undoubtedly one of the most enduring and consistent hardcore punk bands to emerge from the world of hardcore punk. They formed in 1981 (with roots going back to the late 70s), have eleven awesome full-lengths comprising their extensive discography (yes, even ...
