Video Premiere: Apocalyptica, “Cold Blood”

By: Adrien Begrand Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Thursday, February 26th, 2015

band02

It’s incredible to think that a band that burst on to the scene with a novel collection of Metallica covers on cello has not only managed to out together a career lasting two decades, but has built itself into an incredibly popular act. Although they’ve been an active touring band, it’s been five years since Apocalyptica has put out new music, but that’s about to change with the April ...

The upcoming Harm's Way record Rust -- out March 10 via Deathwish Inc -- is an industrial-by-way-of-metallic-hardcore-by-way-of-Triptykon multidimensional rager that is going to turn a lot of heads. This afternoon Decibel is pleased to exclusively premiere the video for "Amongst the Rust." For more information, check out our profile of the band in the current issue. Tour dates after the ...

Last we heard from Old Man Gloom, vocalist/guitarist Aaron Turner and drummer Santos Montano were telling our very own KSP about their Ape of God shenanigans. Not only has everyone except the small corner of the world called the internet forgiven and forgotten, but the quartet thankfully has managed to keep its sense of humor intact (for starters, the group's Facebook page, which is rife with ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Father Sky “Silver Spoon”

fathersky_heavyrock_decibel_2015

There's something to be said for a band to willfully pose in front of an old boogie vans and not be the least ashamed. For Texas' Father Sky, such objects are the focus of their non-musical affection. They scream back to a time when the sun felt warmer, the riffs fuzzier, the hems wider, and the sex freer. As for Father Sky's music, well, think of Black Sabbath, Steamhammer, and ZZ Top in a ...

Video Premiere: Lay Siege “Hollow Hands”

Boy, it's easy to get lost in music videos these days. In the latest black-and-white video for Lay Siege's "Hollow Hands" the English sludge/hardcore hybrid certainly does their best headbanging. But the camera keeps panning to a guy who looks like a community college English professor who is very pissed off at the book he's holding. He's ripping the pages out right like the best censor. That's ...

Premiere: Shredhead’s Incredible New Animated Video

The videos that arrive at Decibel headquarters are often predictably bad. There are the things we loathe (lyric videos), things we find annoying (videos talking about the making of videos) and the low budget (we'll just record ourselves playing live and hope people give a shit). Boy, did Shredhead's new animated stop motion video just take a massive dump on these bland efforts. The effort and ...

Expain Does Guitar Playthrough. Old Coot Stewart-Panko Whines and Complains.

Most of the promotional methodologies of the digital age are platforms I don't quite get and don't think I'll ever be able to hang with. In addition to the constant fishing for complements that are disguised as update/progress reports ("We've got two-and-a-half new songs written and we can't wait for you guys to hear them!" or "Check out our guitar player recording 30 seconds of scratch ...

PREMIERE: A Forest of Stars’s “Drawing Down the Rain” Video

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, videos On: Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

You want a crazy ass music video? A Forest of Stars sure have one for you! In this 10 minute animated film by Ingram Blakelock, a little dude sets out on an epic journey across a video game-like world to do… Something, I guess? You'll have to watch to find out. Oh, and there's anachronistic folky black metal playing over the whole thing. I'm not sure what any of it has to do with each other, ...

BODY HORROR, OR, A NIGHTMARE ON THOU STREET: The Body/Thou’s “Beyond the Realms of Dream, That Fleeting Shade Under the Corpus of Vanity”

What do you get when you combine two of the ugliest doom bands out there today? Well, it sure ain't gonna be pretty. For their latest collaboration, You, Whom I Have Always Hated, The Body and Thou make some serious noise and cover Nine Inch Nails. They also made a video (directed by Thou's Mitch Wells). Because we never want you to sleep again, we've premiered "Beyond the Realms of Dream, That ...

Lo! (and Behold) It’s an Interview and Video Premiere!

Australian sludge metal miscreants, Lo! have decided to celebrate the arrival of new vocalist, Sam Dillon by dunking him repeatedly into a vat of what looks like congealed Pepto Bismol in their brand new video, "Orca." While some may see the video below as evidence of some cruel hazing ritual (whatever happened to the good ol' days when Metallica got the Misfits to beat the crap out of Jason ...
