Look at those dudes, hanging out in the forest. Pretty old-school. So's their music. Some Entombed, some Paradise Lost, and a whole lot of death metal, Decaying bring the pain like they used to in the Clinton era, Finland style. We have the entirety of their new album, One to Conquer, to help darken up your workday. MOSH. ***One to Conquer comes out November 4 on Hellthrasher. You can ...

Hivelords from Gene Smirnov on Vimeo. Looks like the follow-up to the excellent Cavern Apothecary is going to be a scary, beautiful, leveling thing, people. Look for it next ...

"A lot has been written and said about me through the years -- most of it bad, some of it untrue." That's the opening of the 2010 Paul Di'Anno biography The Beast, which reads more like a gritty LA noir novel than a musical memoir. If you were to read the book -- a combination of the Mötley Crüe biography The Dirt and the Marquis De Sade -- you'd think avoiding Di'Anno was in your best ...

** Decibel Hall of Famers Sick of it All know what it's like to persevere. They've been around longer than most of us have been alive, toiling in the unsteady waters of hardcore/punk like strongmen of the Five Burroughs. Well, the legends have returned in the shape of new album, Last Act Of Defiance. It takes the Koller brothers and the rest of Sick of it All back to the group's roots, the ...

By Mike McGinnis Positive and negative. Quiet and loud. Angst and ease. Can't have one without the other. This is a primary concept we've been working with on our new record and trying to incorporate as much contrast as possible in both the sound and the themes without steering too far from the sound we've previously crafted for ourselves. As much as we're using this theme to our advantage, ...

King Parrot Fly the North American Skies!

Two years ago, Aussie weirdos King Parrot's debut full-length, Bite Your Head Off, unloaded itself on that continent.  Candlelight Records then released the album Stateside late last year, and the band of screwy-grindy-thrash-loving dudes have been flapping back and forth between land masses to support their renewed new-act status. We had a chance to ask King Parrot about everything tour ...

Recorded on their first and only tour of the colonies last year in support of their 2013 comeback album, Life Sentence, Live Sentence encapsulates a ...

The weird guy in the GOTHAM commercials: Who is he? I don't want to watch the show. I just want to know who he is. The Joker? Eagles of Death Metal So, we are six weeks into the season. I think it’s safe to say the Broncos are the toast of the AFC, even though I think Philip Rivers is the league’s MVP at this point. But what about the NFC? Is it really the 3-2 Seahawks? We crowned ...

When Obituary returned in 2005 with Frozen In Time--at that point, its first album in eight years--Decibel was still in its infancy. Fast forward to today, and we're about to throw two tenth anniversary shows on Saturday night while the death metal legends are about to drop their ninth studio effort, the long-time coming Inked In Blood, later this month. Even though they won't be in NYC this ...
