By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

vultureindustries_blackmetal_decibel_2013

If you were to ask Vulture Industries’ main-brain Bjørnar Nilsen where inspiration comes from, he’d probably say this: "We draw inspiration from all over but tend to give each part a good kick in the side to bend it a bit out of shape. If you draw a hexagon and put Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Devil Doll, ‘70s Alice Cooper, Mastodon and Screaming Jay Hawkins in each corner, you’d find us in the ...

Skeletonwitch Studio Video

Anybody heard of "Kurt Ballou"?  The hairy dudes in this video here keep referring to him as if he's well known or somehow important, even relevant (!) to the current music scene.  Weird.  He twiddles knobs, people.  It's not like he's some badass guitar player or (ha!) songwriter in a legendary metallic hardcore band.  Let's keep things in perspective, shall we?  And has he even been ...

Avulsed's supremely excellent death metal splatter platter Ritual Zombi has already received plenty of Deci-love -- see Rod Smith's 8/10 rave in issue 107 and/or my own giddy profile in 108 -- so we were more than a little honored when legendary vocalist Dave Rotten offered us the opportunity to premiere the beautiful, nightmarish clip for "Dead Flesh Awakened." Check out the video below then hit ...

STREAMING: Felix Martin “Triangle Tune”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

felixmartin_jazzmetal_decibel_2013

There comes a point where progressive is no longer progressive. It's a step beyond. For Venezuelan guitarist Felix Martin, he's taken the six-string and transformed it into a 14-string creating what he calls "jazz metal." Now, if we're to rewind history a bit, "jazz metal" was already covered---to some degree---by Cynic, Pestilence, and Atheist. But Felix Martin adds something new to the concept. ...

Before you jump all down my throat and get up in my grill, understand that not all metal festivals are on the same level as Wacken, MDF, Roadburn, Chaos in Tejas, Bloodstock, one of the annual Scion-sponsored shin-digs or even Hopscotch or FunFunFunFest. Not every fest has the ability to draw thousands or can be held in a major market or central location. Not every fest has the pull or financial ...

Wake up and Smell the Falseness: An Interview with Wake

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, interviews, videos On: Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

wakeband

Wake are from Canada. They play grindcore. They seem generally unhappy about things. Here's a description of the film that Handshake Inc. owner David Hall is making based on the album that sums up the general vibe better than I ever could (a NSFW segment of which can be found below). "False" is a film based on the album of the same name by Calgary's WAKE. Like the album, the film is dirty, ...

STREAMING: Scion A/V interviews Municipal Waste

Municipal Waste are no strangers to Decibel-land. Having performed admirably at our 100th Issue show, appeared as chefs on the cover of issue #89 [available HERE] and earned an honorable place on Albert’s mancave mantle, the Virginia-based thrashers are, well, like family. When Scion A/V approached us to air an exclusive interview with the Wastoids—in celebration for their second ...

deciblog - tihc-2013-may-announcement

Today's the first day of four of 2013's This is Hardcore Festival. Last week, we spoke to owner and operator, Joe "Hardcore" Mckay about his background, the fest's humble early years and most everything else concerning the annual Philly throwdown. Read it here. This week, we tracked down members from a few of the 54 bands performing this year to ask them a neat and tidy question: as briefly as ...

Secret of the Ooze: An Interview with Oozing Wound’s Zack Weil

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, videos On: Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Oozing Wound by Joe Martinez -  62A1473

Thrill Jockey are known mostly for their weird post-rock and experimental psych acts like Trans Am, Barn Owl, Eternal Tapestry, and Tortoise. And that stuff is great, and we cover it, but it's always a slightly uncomfortable match with the magazine. Recently, though, they've expanded into full-blown metal madness with Liturgy, the Body, and now Oozing Wound. The Chicago-based trio's debut, ...
