I originally got my hands on Barishi's self-titled, self-released, full-length album via guitarist Graham Brooks who was filling in for fellow Vermonters, Vaporizer during a tour with Vattnet Viskar. After figuring out who the hell I was, he passed along a copy of the record and Bob's yer fucking uncle. That was about a year ago and the band is back with an EP entitled Endless Howl which comes ...

Post-holiday doldrums. The coldest time of the year, especially with climate change. It's time for your favorite band to get the 30-year-old van out of the garage and challenge ice storms and snowpiles to play for your benefit. West Virginia's favorite sons Karma To Burn will be one of the brave soliders taking to the road in the dead of winter. As they kick off their ambitious North ...

King Parrot Fly the North American Skies!

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 ...

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 ...

Duo Me All Night Long: An Interview with Fossils

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 ...
