Here we go. Mercury is still in retrograde, so you know, a parrot can be moody too. The cavemen of death metal (self-proclaimed), OBITUARY, release Inked in Blood on Relapse. Beginning as a Kickstarter project, this comes out of the gate relatively fast, and then really slows the pace down. Like puts the brakes on for most of the record. The pace really picks back up near the end, and kinda ...

I've been going on about Amsterdam's Kong for almost 25 years. The instrumental metal/electronic/dance-y/trance-y/industrial quartet show no sign of slowing down which, by default, means I'm not going to be able to slow down in my unwavering support for the band. And if they keep offering up killer albums like their recently released eighth album, Stern , well, that's just more deaf ears for my ...

Q: What’s Meghan Trainor’s middle name? A: Needsa Primitive Football God This summer, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the dudes from Denver’s Primitive Man. Not only are they one of the dopest, heaviest, most pummeling bands in heavy music right now, but their bassist, Jonathan Campos, wears a Denver Broncos hat in July. Dudes who wear football hats during the offseason are ...

Decibrity Playlist: Encoffination

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

III-3

As previously expressed in these pages, the concept behind the new Encoffination record is "the glorification of death: an offering to the embodiment of death’s creation, and to sing the wretched hymns of death’s omnipresence, to kneel to death’s crown as we all shall fall under death’s eventual grasp...If the last record were a tool to teach about death, this record is that creation." ...

If you are a regular Deciblog reader you're probably wondering why we didn't call out the new Decimation track name in the headline. Well, let's just say it's a bit of a tongue twister: "Devilish Domain Vortex in the Gloom of Wicked Ziggura." Wait, what? That's a verbal flourish that would make Willy Wonka proud. We'll refer to it henceforth as "the new song." Decimation is holding down the ...

Sucker For Punishment: A Septuagenarian Stew

Metal scenesters have always had a problem with artists that “dabble” in metal. In a way, that’s easy to understand: heavy metal is an all-or-nothing style of music, one whose audience embraces as not only as a diversion but a lifestyle, and they fully expect the same kind of dedication to the music, art, and aesthetic from the musicians. Authenticity and sincerity are key to fans, and when ...

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 ...

"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 ...
