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

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: featured, interviews, tours On: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

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 ...

Baton Rouge doom/sludge prolific over-achievers, Thou has returned from an almost unheard of (for them, anyway) two years of silence as far as releases are concerned with their latest and greatest full-length, Heathen. We recently sent guitarist Andy Gibbs and vocalist Bryan Funck a bunch of questions to respond to via email. It would appear they approach interviews with the same prolific depth ...

Late-breaking news for the just-around-the-corner 2014 Decibel Magazine Tour. We've added another regional opener that should get you lucky SoCal metalheads good and stoked. L.A.'s mighty deathgrind institution Nausea will be added to the Santa Ana show on Tuesday, March 25, at the Observatory. Gotta appreciate how we're sticking to the theme of bands who take wayyyyyy too long between ...

Exmortus – “Foe Hammer” Video Premiere

California's Exmortus blew my ears and balls back with their debut full length, In Hatred`s Flame back in 2008. The quartet seemed destined to take their prodigious talents, love of aggressive 80s-inspired metal, interest in neo-classical shred and proclivity for combining all three of those elements to the top of the then-bubbling thrash revival. Then, well, I don`t know what happened or where ...

Fatality’s Wintour Diary

By: Posted in: diary, featured, listen, tours, videos On: Wednesday, February 19th, 2014


Last summer, the young bucks in Fatality wrote a cogent piece for the Deciblog on how you can successfully crowdfund a project without pissing off fans. As a result, we got to know bassist Adam Zed pretty well and found him to be a likeable and hilarious chap. Then, he approached the Deciblog about doing a tour diary. We weren't sold. With a few exceptions, tour diaries are boring and devoid ...

deciblog - lacour live

It was day two of a recent KEN Mode tour across Canada on which I was acting as designated merch slinger and person-who-tries-to-make-sure-nothing-gets-lost-or-forgotten-because-he-doesn’t-drink. After piling into the van that afternoon, bassist Andrew LaCour whipped out a bag of tuna cuts that he and his father had smoked a couple days previously. For the next half-hour, the KEN Mode mobile ...

Sweet Smooth Smoke Rising. An Interview with Vaporizer

deciblog - Vaporizer Logo

Those of you who pay rapt attention to the Throw Me a Frickin' Bone column might already have taken note of Vaporizer and the kind words I've bestowed upon their intense irascibility and how I gave their EP a nod as one of the top self-releases of last year. If you haven't already checked them out, or at least intend to, please do so - I even said "please" - as they are fully deserving of the ...
