STREAMING: French sludge-metallers DRAWERS new self-titled album

January 17, 2014

Ladies and germs, courtesy of the good people of Kaotoxin Records, it is our great honor to host this online premiere of Drawer’s self-tilted sophomore album. Drawers are a five-piece outfit from Toulouse, France, who play sludge or a variant thereof; Drawers is really just big-riffed, amp-worshipping metal. This is sludgish metal. Indeed, calling Drawers…

Relapse Records release 26-track compilation as a free download

October 14, 2013

Relapse could probably have found a stronger name for their 2013 autumn/winter sampler than, uhh, Relapse Sampler 2013. Cast your mind back when Earache were releasing their Grindcrusher sampler series, and Peaceville had the enigmatically titled Under the Sign of the Sacred Star; that was how you named a sampler. But that was back then,…

John Dyer Baizley of Baroness on five life-changing album covers

July 29, 2013

“I could go on all day about Pink Floyd record covers,” says Baroness frontman/guitarist John Dyer Baizley. “I could go on all day about Neurosis record covers or Converge—Jacob Bannon is another great album cover artist.” He really could.

Strength Beyond Strength: The Jason Statts Story

January 30, 2013

As Decibel friend Brian Lew (aka Umlaut) says: the metal Gods work in mysterious ways. So there’s no need to tell you how we heard about Jason Statts, a Decibel reader and metal fan confined to a wheelchair after he was robbed and shot leaving his first ever gig about five years ago. The attack…

Deciblog Q&A: Baroness frontman John Dyer Baizley elaborates on U.K. bus crash (PART II)

October 10, 2012

You’ve used the words “six months” a few times [regarding touring again]. Is that when you anticipate everybody should be ready to go? I see six months as the longest possible period of time that I can be held down. Honestly, it’ll be sooner than that, but I don’t wanna… How did you come to…
