VIDEO PREMIERE: Evocation “Divide and Conquer”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, videos On: Monday, November 26th, 2012


We at Decibel get a lot of chances at firsts. We were the first metal magazine to put flexi discs in the Common Era. We were the first magazine to introduce the Hall of Fame. 95 and counting, to be awesomely sure. We were also the first magazine to premiere new Evocation album---in its entirety---Illusions of Grandeur and remastered demo tune, "Through The Darkened Peril", before any of the Euros ...

Obscene Extreme Sails To America!

By: Dan Lake Posted in: breaking newz, featured, videos On: Wednesday, November 21st, 2012


For 14 years, extreme hate-thunder has rained down from the blighted Czech sky every July, under the Obscene Extreme banner.  In 2013, the organizers are seriously upping the ante, and we here at Decibel get to formally welcome Obscene Extreme America!  It’s in Mexico!  (Yeah, against the protestations of xenophobes all over the United States, there are actually two whole continents called ...

Rabid death crew Wretched are on a rockin' roll.  In March of this year they released their third full-length record in as many years, and they've been burning up the road with some seriously badass acts in the months since.  Right now they're out with Six Feet Under, and they've got mucho dates scheduled for the spring with Soilwork, Jeff Loomis, Blackguard, and The Browning.  If you haven't ...

Regents features current and ex-members of Sleepytime Trio, Maximillian Colby, Frodus, the Exploder, Battery, Combatwoundedveteran, Thursday, United Nations and Decahedron playing the sort of screwy and spazzy post-punk punk rock you’d expect a band featuring current and ex-members of Sleepytime Trio, Maximillian Colby, Frodus, the Exploder, Battery, Combatwoundedveteran, Thursday, United ...

VIDEO: Palkoski’s Cinematic Grind

By: adem Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs, heavy tuesdays, videos On: Tuesday, October 30th, 2012


Sometimes in the face of overwhelming shittiness, we need a little something to distract us. We suspect that a pretty large number of our brethren (and sistren, or whatever...) are currently without the ability to log onto the Interhole at the moment thanks to Sandy but for those who are, here's something that is completely not about reality. This clip comes to us courtesy of Vienna, VA, ...

Video Gold From Metal’s Early Years

By: adem Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs, heavy tuesdays, stupid crap, videos On: Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012


Metallica were wise to wait several years before making their first promotional music video. Having experienced it first hand—waiting patiently for a metal video to pop up so we could capture it on our VHS recorder—we can attest to the fact that the dawn of music videos in the early '80s was the worst. Especially the metal ones, which were frequently done on indie-label budgets and generally ...

Golden Void is a band that I stumbled across thanks to the fine fuckers over at Thrill Jockey who pimped them as an outfit inspired by “Sabbath, Hawkwind and rounded out by Robert Fripp, Jimi Hendrix, and even some Can in there as well.” Those of you familiar with the instrumental, psychedelic, Fat Albert-ness (yeah, yeah, dumb reference, but go listen to them and see if you can figure out ...

EXCLUSIVE: Dragged Into Sunlight “Widowmaker” Preview

By: adem Posted in: featured, heavy tuesdays, videos On: Tuesday, October 9th, 2012


For the record, the "Exclusive" up in the title of this blog post actually means something. What it means is that this post is the only place where you can hear new music from the upcoming Dragged Into Sunlight album Widowmaker (and see the amazing artwork) until it is released by Prosthetic Records on MP3 and CD November 6 and vinyl a week later. The video embedded below features almost four ...

Banger Films needs you! Help fund Metal Evolution’s “lost” extreme metal episode

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs, videos On: Monday, September 24th, 2012


Decibel usually maintains a safe distance from the film and TV business because, well, it looks totally fucked up and confusing and the printed word is a tough enough mistress to keep. But when anthropologist, award-winning film-maker and metal fan Sam Dunn came calling looking for funding and support for an extreme metal episode of his Metal Evolution documentary series, it seemed liked the sort ...

When we were told that Chicago's Like Rats featured members of grind provocateurs, Weekend Nachos getting in touch with their inner Tom Warrior (the one who's written about in the Only Death is Real book, not this one), we got pretty excited. We got even more chuffed when Dom at A389 came a ringin' with the offer of sharing the entirety of the band's latest, and first full length, with you ...
