A Pale Horse Named Death: A Glimpse Behind The Horse #2

By: Posted in: featured, tv, videos On: Wednesday, June 12th, 2013


This is our second post from director Aaron Beaucher on the making of the new A Pale Horse Named Death video "DMSLT." An updated gallery follows. Check out the first post here. ***** During filming we tried to capture as many angles as possible. Before a shoot, I typically sit down and visualize the angles I want and create a rough shot sheet to make sure I get what I need. If I could ...

Get a Van for Getting in the Van: An Interview with Greenvans Owner Andrew Reitz

deciblog - greenvans

I don't exactly remember how I stumbled across Greenvans, but if Andrew Reitz had been offering the use of 15-passenger vans at affordable rates exclusively to touring bands, it would have made my touring life a fuck of a lot easier. I would have avoided doing month long tours in minivans out of necessity, for one thing. It's about time there was a service that won't nickel and dime you on milage ...

Today marks the final installment of Old School hardcore Thrusdays with the members Umea throwback punks, AC4. Check out parts one and two, if you should so desire. This week, I asked bassist Christoffer Jonsson and guitarist Karl Backman to list off the albums they spent as much time longingly staring at back in the day as much as they did listened to. Top Five Old School HC Album ...

EXCLUSIVE: Godflesh clip from Maryland Deathfest: The Movie III

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, videos On: Wednesday, May 8th, 2013


There's no introductory preamble necessary for this clip from Maryland Deathfest: The Movie III. You all know that Maryland Deathfest is an obligatory pilgrimage for any self-respecting blastbeat-worshipping Decibangers. And Godflesh are, well Godflesh: The marriage of riff to machine, the sound of urban alienation, of a dead city collapsing in on itself, et cetera. But here's one anyway from ...

Uncle Acid’s Intro to Cinema

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: featured, lists, videos On: Tuesday, April 16th, 2013


We're less than a month out now from the release of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats' sublime psychedelic doom n' roll tour de force Mind Control, and, lord, does the tranquil-yet-oddly-sinister old school VHS clamshell-esque cover artwork suit the album's messianic death cult lyrical theme and transcendentalist sonic vibe. "The whole album reeks of VHS and low-budget exploitation so I wanted ...

Italy’s most cult: Dark Quarterer show how it’s done in 80s rehearsal footage

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Monday, April 15th, 2013


The following home-shot recordings of cult Italian metal champs Dark Quarterer should serve as a how-to for any bands, young or old, who want to marry metal's appetite for epic derring-do and mysticism with a resolutely blue collar work ethic and run with it. You see, epic metal just doesn't magic itself epic after a couple of crude allusions to Greek mythology and Tolkien, with a saucing of ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Finntroll “Häxbrygd”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, videos On: Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013


Back in April 2010, Decibel pitted Finntroll against Norway's Troll in a brutal troll-off. The segment, brilliantly titled Under the Bridge, can be found here in dB #66 if you're at all curious as to who won the bridge battle. Then, in the winter of the Year of Our (Dark) Lord, the festive Finns in Finntroll debuted new tune, "Blodsvept," to 28,000+ domestic spins and plaudits from the group's ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Negator Studio Report 2013

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, videos On: Wednesday, March 27th, 2013


The Negator monikor sounds like a Decepticon from Transformers, but musically the Hamburg-based black metal quintet are as vicious as they are obscure. Go on, tell us you're a fan. Anyway, across three well-received traditional full-lengths, Negator has earned a small yet ardent following. Led by frontman Nachtgarm---who also served time in Dark Funeral following the departure of Emperor Magus ...

Courtesy of the good people of Agonia Records, welcome to what is definitely the closest the Deciblog gets to a red carpet event: The Internet premiere of Swedish experimental post-metallers The Moth Gatherer’s video for “Falling Deity”. The track is culled from their forthcoming debut LP, Bright Celestial Light, a dynamic and genre-unspecific album that calls to mind Cult of Luna, ...
