Brazil’s Crucifixion BR recently signed a deal with Horror Pain Gore Death Productions to release their debut full-length Destroying the Fucking Disciples of Christ. The Deciblog emailed with drummer Juliana Novo (aka DarkMoon) and singer/guitarist Marcio Guterres (aka Lord Grave War) to learn about all things heavy south of the equator. Tell us a bit about how, when, and where Crucifixion ...

HARK_(c)Ester_Segarra_0336_small

Our Managing Editor and I share a fondness for many bands, but if I'm remembering correctly, he was responsible for introducing me to one in particular via his review of The Ruin of Nová Roma way back in the day: Taint. While the trio broke up in 2010, guitarist/vocalist Jimbob Isaac has resurfaced in Hark. The group released Crystalline earlier this year, an effort that will not leave Taint ...

deciblog - gillis live

A couple months ago, I introduced you to Winnipeg death metal outfit Psychotic Gardening here. In the search for additional and interesting content for this here spot on this here blog, I was altered to the fact that vocalist Chris "Gillishammer" Gillis' dayjob was as a gravedigger! As soon as I heard that, I immediately did the most logical thing and rustled up a bunch of email questions to ...

Heavy Metal Movies: Interview with author Mike McPadden

By: Sean Frasier Posted in: featured, interviews, uncategorized On: Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Mike McPadden - Chris Roo

I blame every sobering statistic regarding global literacy on the fact that until now the world didn’t have Heavy Metal Movies, the twisted tome cataloging Mike “McBeardo” McPadden’s infatuation with extremely extreme music and film. With 666+ reviews of headbang-friendly films, McBeardo is your personal Virgil leading you into the underworld of metallic cinema treasures. What was your ...

Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski (Behemoth) Interview Excerpts

behemoth_deathmetal_decibel_2014

** March 2014. An eternity ago. We featured Behemoth on the cover, in which frontman Adam 'Nergal' Darski goes through his tribulations with career, state, and cancer. Darski's also a bit of a traveler, too. We found five quotes that weren't used for the March 2014 issue (DB #113) that remind us why Darski (and Behemoth) rule. On lyrics for The Satanist Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski: There is free ...

Fuck Winter. Listen to an Exclusive Stream of Blistered’s New EP

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: exclusive, featured, interviews, listen, uncategorized On: Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

deciblog - blistered logo

Blistered is a five-piece metallic hardcore outfit who call Tampa home and came to my attention courtesy the good folks at 6131 Records who are releasing their latest offering, and EP called Soul Erosion, which you can stream below. As winter goes on and my stir-craziness hits epic proportions, part of my decision to give this week's blog space to this band is rooted as much in the fact I used to ...

Hell Goes to America: Hellbenders Interviewed

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: exclusive, featured, interviews, uncategorized, videos On: Thursday, February 20th, 2014

deciblog - hellbennett

I discovered Brazil's Hellbenders the old fashioned way: their U.S. publicist pointed me in their direction. However, instead of doing what I normally do and ignoring the histrionic pitch (which, after having the band described as Brazil's answer to Kyuss/High on Fire/stoner/desert rock, would have been the logical thing to do), I bit. And man, I'm glad I did! This quartet from Goiania is indeed ...

STREAMING: Mayhem “Psywar”

mayhem_blackmetal_decibel_2014

The True Mayhem. Ground zero for Norwegian black metal. Since 1984, the Oslo-based outfit has made waves. Though it would take a good number of years—about three, actually—before Deathcrush hit posers hard, the group’s coup de grace was posthumous debut album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. With Euronymous dead and the Norwegian scene reeling from heavy media pressure, Mayhem didn’t ...

Subtracting Proportions: An Interview with Biblical

deciblog - biblical live

I've known Nick Sewell, and been aware of his prodigious skill on the bass gee-tar, since the mid-90s. Good Lord! That's round-and-about 20 real-life years, which is the equivalent of about 2000 musician/band years. In that time, dude has played in some of Toronto's most notorious metal and hard rockin' bands, including Tchort, The Illuminati and Drunkula and was one of few to have been signed to ...
