The latest closet metalhead, Jessica Pimentel, is not exactly a closet metalhead. Currently appearing in the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, she refers to herself as a “closet actress.” That's because Pimentel is well known in her native New York City for holding it down in local hardcore and metal bands, including Alekhine's Gun and Desolate.

"The Unwound path crossed a lot of different scenes." - Justin Trosper "We took our music in a lot of different directions, though always staying very Unwound." Sara Lund The above quotes from Unwound guitarist/vocalist Trosper and drummer Lund basically explain and justify the appearance of the not-metal band this week on the ol' Deciblog. Unwound originally came screaming out of the ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Meek Is Murder’s “In the Ground”

Leah Sottile already made the obvious Smiths joke in her post on these guys back in 2011, which totally ruins my planned lazy intro. So fine. Meek Is Murder are super into Botch and other music that makes your ears hurt, which is always a good thing. Of course, that's only appropriate, considering that, in the year preceding the creation of Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters, ...

I love me some Secrets of the Sky.  I loved their album To Sail Black Waters when I first heard (half of) it last year.  I loved it more when the other half made it to the Soundcloudosphere (beyond the stratosphere, just underneath the Bandcamposphere).  I love it now that it's being released by Kolony Records. How much do I love it?  If you're a subscriber, it's possible you already know ...

Seeker are heavy, technical, and here to eat all your stuff. Lock up your women, children, and refrigerators, and when you've done that, kneel at the feet of vocalist Bryce Lucien and prepare to receive some serious wisdom.   Here we are, on tour as we have been for the better part of the last year and a half, with our new album Unloved coming out in five weeks. To say I'm excited to ...

As you may or may not know, Californian next-gen thrashers Warbringer will be dropping album number four—IV: Empires Collapse—on Oct 29th through Century Media. The band have been on the road pretty much constantly since 2011’s Worlds Torn Asunder, and in that time have augmented their lineup with guitarist Jeff Potts and bassist Ben Mottsman, both plucked from Pittsburgh thrash crew Mantic ...

STREAMING: Inquisition “Darkness Flows Towards Unseen Horizons” (Lyric Video)

Lyric videos are a bit of a mystery. They probably started with pop music on major labels for no other reason than to have a video on Youtube for nerdballs to copy/paste into lyric sites (with typos) as a way to pump up their online cred factor. Well, folks, lyric videos have, fittingly I might add, filtered down to the underground, where voices roar, grunt, and growl. If lyric videos had a ...

In Person Aural Devastation: Author & Punisher Live

Decibel has made no secret of our love for the idiosyncratic have-to-see-it-to-believe-it one-man doom behemoth Author & Punisher. And these insane videos from the band's recent performance at the Fillmore basically speak for themselves. So...further comment is probably unnecessary. The new record, Women & Children, is available here. Bonus: The Lynch-ian video for "Terrorbird" after the jump. ...

January 19: a momentous day for America. In 1982, it gave its citizenry Jodie Sweetin, Full House’s preeminent meth fiend. In 2013, a slight upgrade: Decibel Magazine’s 100th Issue Show at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, starring Converge, Pig Destroyer, Repulsion, Municipal Waste, Tombs, Evoken and a who’s-who of extreme music luminaries. We teamed up with director David Hall (the man ...

VIDEO: Carvin’s Shreds of Insanity

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, videos On: Thursday, September 12th, 2013

shreds of insanity

I assume there are some fans of guitar shred reading this, because this is a metal website on the Internet. Well, today's your lucky day! Century Media gathered four pretty killer shredders with long, flowing locks at the Carvin store in Hollywood on August 26 to allow them to show off their skills, jam together, and answer questions from their fans. It was originally supposed to be a ...
