A Very Heavy Halloween: Alice Cooper DVD Contest!

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: contest, featured On: Thursday, October 30th, 2014


Alice Cooper famously refuses to even broach the idea of maybe someday retiring and if there's one thing the ridiculously epic mash-up of career-spanning fist-in-the-air anthems and grandiose dark carnival theatrics so exquisitely captured on Raise The Dead -- Live From Wacken makes clear it's that there's abso-fucking-lutely no reason on earth he should pull the plug anytime soon. In honor of ...

Decibrity Playlist: Bastard Feast

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, October 30th, 2014


We have a lot of love for Bastard Feast around these parts. Adrien Begrand lauded the band's latest album, Osculum Infame, in his Sucker for Punishment column, Dan Lake interviewed the quintet earlier this summer and the Oregonians snagged a local spot opening for Carcass and company on this year's Decibel tour. Now with the group set to hit the road for a month starting tomorrow, guitarist ...

Thou’s Heathen: Studio Report Outtakes

By: Posted in: featured, interviews On: Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


In early 2013, Thou vocalist Bryan Funck sent us wonderful responses on the writing and recording of Thou's 2014 album Heathen. The issue: we only had enough space for our customary studio report and had to cherry pick details. As people begin to consider their best-of lists Heathen will doubtless be one of the albums that makes short lists. We decided to dust off Funck's responses and give them ...

Death Mask Dawning: Exclusive “Metalhead” Clip!

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: exclusive, featured On: Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


The buzz, my friends, is justified. Metalhead, the "dark, intense drama of loss, faith, redemption, and heavy metal" from acclaimed Icelandic director Ragnar Bragason, is a gorgeous, harrowing, touching, and, despite its black metal grim moments, ultimately, uplifting piece of tour de force filmmaking with a soundtrack that previously only existed in the dreams of trve-ly cultivated ...

Seeing Priest With My Dad

By: Dutch Pearce Posted in: featured, live reviews On: Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


“Oh, watch the lightning strike Feel the powers of the hammer's pounding on Take it to your heart and understand What must live on from father to son” -“Father to Son” by Quorthon/Bathory One thing my family always jokes about is how my dad was caught crying at the end of The Last Unicorn. It’s since been decades, and many other weepy movies, songs and moments therein, but my dad ...

Sucker For Punishment: Blinded By Fandom

By: Adrien Begrand Posted in: featured On: Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


As music writers learn when they hit their late 30s and head into their 40s, nostalgia is very powerful, to the point of being irresistible. Whenever a revered artist or band returns from a very long absence with a record that’s been hyped to the nines, you’re going to have certain critics whose attachment to the band is so strong that try as they might to provide an objective opinion on the ...

STREAMING: Fides Inversa’s “Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, interviews, listen On: Tuesday, October 28th, 2014


Fides Inversa play black metal in a Primordial style, and they sure take it seriously. I mean, check out the interview below. I had to read it like three times to understand what they were talking about, and I think it basically comes down to "the devil." Still, their music is pretty rad, so not only do we have the aforementioned interview, but we have an exclusive premiere of their new album, ...
