Vanity Nemesis: Stuff on License Plates

December 3, 2010

There comes a time–mostly mid-to-late teens–when you want your preferences known. Any and all preferences. Musical, religious, movie, food, drink, fuck partner, etc. You broadcast your preferences anywhere there’s retail space. Could be on a folder you bring to class (admittedly, I’ve never seen, “I fuck Amanda” instead of “I love Amanda” scrawled on a…

For Those About to Squawk: Waldo’s Pecks of the Week II

December 3, 2010

Every Friday, Waldo the African Grey Parrot, frontbird of thrash-grind immortals Hatebeak, will get you caught up on the week’s latest “extreme” releases. Waldo here.

Christmas Jeer

December 2, 2010

As Jeanne helpfully reminded me a couple days back, it’s damn near time I dress my dogs up in a stupid/humiliating costume, do a little hostage photo shoot, and print up the latest batch of Christmas cards sure to enkindle in my pugs’ hearts a desire to discover the secret of how one becomes a…

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…

Holiday Shopping List for My Deciblog Coworkers

December 1, 2010

My fellow dbloggers have covered my ass this past year on more than a few (or, like, a few hundred) occasions. In order to thank them, I scoured eBay for some rare vinyl goodies. Because I’m not a cheap turd, I went for the super-expensive super-rare heavy metal stuff because the pricier the album, the…

November 30, 2010

Last week, we here at the Deciblog unfurled two tank-shredding Sodom tunes, “In War and Pieces” & “Hellfire”, to much fanfare. Rockets were bursting in air, bombs all red glare, we’re here to prove Sodom’s still gallantly streaming. This week, as previously announced, we have two more daisycutter songs in the form of “Through Toxic…

Welcome to the second instalment of Decibel’s Study Hall of Fame. Here, my eight-year-old son, Sam cherry picks albums from our illustrious Hall and delivers opinion untainted by the sort of prejudicial bullshit that forces the majority of us to employ phrases like “guilty pleasure” to justify our enjoyment of stuff that supposedly flies in…
