Contest: Win 7 Inches of Skeletonwitch

January 24, 2011

We’ve got 7 sweet inches of Skeletonwitch that are just aching to penetrate your brain. “The Skullsplitter” is part deux of the new 7-inch trilogy from Ohio’s dirty denim-clad metalheads. Incidentally, if you’re familiar with the Viking brew known as Skull Splitter, you’ll notice that the dude on the label looks a lot like the…

New Sodom Track “God Bless You” Streaming + Vinyl Contest

December 30, 2010

For the last five weeks, we’ve slowly peeled Sodom’s In War and Pieces apart by presenting you, our faithful reader and hopeful subscriber (shameful plug), an advanced audial view of what the German legends have in store for 2011. We used war metaphors (terrible ones, really) and tried our best to come up with sensible…

WTF Wednesday

December 1, 2010

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51WG7kbKTcw Listen kids, this video is long and weird and doesn’t make a lick of sense. But it involves metal so we can’t exactly ignore it. But to get to the headbanging you have to roll through a bunch of nuttiness that is pretty much intolerable. Consider this an art film version of every symphonic…

New Sodom Tracks “Through Toxic Veins” & “Nothing Counts More Than Blood” Streaming + Vinyl Contest

November 30, 2010

Last week, we here at the Deciblog unfurled two tank-shredding Sodom tunes, “In War and Pieces” & “Hellfire”, to much fanfare.

Literary Metalheads Unite, For Like Five Minutes!

November 17, 2010

First off, can someone send me a picture that would fall under the search title “Metalhead Reading”? Jesus Inverted Christ, the internet, all I want is a guy with gauntlets and a novel. It can’t be that elusive. Anyways, the post-metal version of book publishers, McSweeney’s, put up this game the other day that asks…

You Want Inhuman Heaviness? There’s an App For That

November 11, 2010

I don’t think I’ve ever personally beat up on Oceano. I’ve definitely attacked their chosen genre and I’ve lobbed bombs at many of the band’s contemporaries, but the alpha and omega of deathcore has never really crossed my desk… until the iPad. See, to promote their new album, Contagion, they had a contest. What could…

Win a Copy of “Back From Hell: A Tribute To Sam Kinison”

November 10, 2010

The first time I saw comedian Sam Kinison in action was on “Married With Children”’s Christmas special in 1989. He played Al Bundy’s guardian angel, a sort of Clarence to Al’s George Bailey. Even as an angel, Kinison was so shrill and gritty, and his laugh was disgusting. I wanted my guardian angel to sound…

Diamond Eyes Set to Kill

October 14, 2010

I know, I know, with all the thrilling Jets shootouts going on this year, it’s hard to believe that the fourth consecutive completely pointless baseball season hasn’t ended yet.
