WAKE UP & DESTROY: Kosmodemonic Talk Monsters and Dark Psychedelia

May 12, 2016 Sean Frasier

When I first saw extreme metal Brooklynites Kosmodemonic, they were killing it on a stage Watain doused with pig’s blood soon after.

Blood/Fire/Death: Watain douses Brooklyn

June 18, 2014 Sean Frasier

Brooklyn Night Bazaar – June 15th, 2014 Photography by Rodrigo Fredes of PhotoTerco It was Father’s Day, so I arrived early and called my pops outside the venue.

BREWTAL TRUTH: Drink This Now!

April 4, 2014 Adem Tepedelen

We have two beer loves that are in direct contrast to each other: malty German brews and über-hoppy North American brews. These two things have nothing in common taste-wise. They are, of course, brewed with the same ingredients, but the ratios and the particular types of key ingredients used—such as hops, malt and yeast—are dramatically…

August 23, 2013 Adem Tepedelen

Given the opportunity to write about craft beer every month in Decibel has been eye-opening.

Call Of The Wild Song Premiere! “Breaking Shit”

August 21, 2012 Frank Lemke

Breaking Shit by Decibel Magazine It’s strange to be premiering a song off Leave Your Leather On because I’ve been blasting the album for weeks. (It pays to be a big-time journalist.) And yes, I know – I guess these guys forgot about that Limp Biscuit song. Who cares? Stuff still has to get broken…

Drinkin’ n’ Bloggin’ With Carson of Tombs

July 12, 2011 Adem Tepedelen

It’s a well-established fact that we like to drink beer and listen to metal. But second only to that pursuit is being able to talk brewskis with other like-minded beer geeks. So upon hearing that Tombs bassist Carson Daniel James is an equally devout barley-pop imbiber, we called him to talk (and drink) beer. Decibel…
