Dave Mustaine or Billy Corgan: Who’s Crazier?

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, videos On: Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Dave Billy

The world of hard rock and heavy metal is filled with brilliant artists, and sometimes that thin line between genius and insanity gets erased. Usually in public. In very embarrassing ways. And there have been a lot of notable crazies in the music industry, but right now, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan seem to be in a heated race to see which washed up rocker ...

Chances are you know about Scion's involvement in the world of extreme music (as well as garage rock and electronic music scenes). Chances are some of you have even gone on online to whine about a huge corporation like Scion/Toyota digging their claws and worming their tentacles into our sacred little world... after picking up your free Wormrot and Revocation EPs and downloading those two new ...

Vit kill.  Probably not literally, but who knows?  Their brand of grueling harshitude is just about my favorite kind of ear-hate:  a doomy churn filled with motion and eventful anarchy, a corpse-painted wretch that forgoes all amusical mopiness in favor of mounting, forboding horror.  Fans of genre-shunting black mood enhancement take heed.  Vit are shuffling bleakly toward your ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Swarm Of Arrows “Alive Like Death”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Monday, December 10th, 2012


It ain't often the City of Brotherly Hate produces music that isn't A) learning disabled hip-hop B) pretentious art rock or C) hipster/horned rim glasses acoustic "singer"/"songwriter" drivel. So, when extremely extreme (r) stuff like Swarm of Arrows arrives on the barely-there scene, there's reason to take notice. The Great Seekers Of Lesser Life, Swarm of Arrows' newest ruling platter, has been ...

The Foo Fighters may be on a hiatus important enough to be noted by the nation's newspaper of record, but Dave Grohl remains busy, putting the finishing touches on his debut directorial effort Sound City, a documentary about "the truth, the craft and the integrity of Rock and Roll." And as part of the buzz-building slow roll out, several interesting/funny/oddball clips of musicians talking about ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...
