July 30, 2017 Albert Mudrian

Legendary noise rock and experimental metal progenitors Today is the Day just finished recording their debut LP for The End Records.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Venom Inc.

July 4, 2017 Daniel Lake

Now that Venom Inc.’s current trio is about to release this year’s Avé (August 11th on Nuclear Blast), we had the opportunity to celebrate (and anticipate) the upcoming full-length with our Flexi Series. This month (Issue #154, August 2017, Suffocation cover), Decibel brings you a demo version of “Dein Fleisch,” a song that will appear in album form on Avé. While you cruise through the song’s effortless evil, check out bassist/vocalist “Demolition Man” Tony Dolan’s responses to our inquiries about the song’s origins and creation.

April 11, 2017 Daniel Lake

Before their Decibel Metal and Beer Fest performance – and before Panopticon drop their much-anticipated next album – we got to hear “Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing” in the ongoing Decibel Flexi Series.  After dozens of listens, we wanted to get mastermind Austin Lunn’s perspective on the song and its creation.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Immolation

January 24, 2017 Daniel Lake

Before Atonement Fever took hold, we received this, a re-recording of Immolation‘s first song ever, “Immolation,” in Issue #146 (December 2016, Phil Anselmo cover).  The song was special for the band back when it was first recorded, and its new rendition is significant for its own reasons…  See the included interview for details.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Zao

January 10, 2017 Daniel Lake

Zao dish the dirt on the making of their limited edition Decibel Flexi Series track.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Integrity

July 26, 2016 Daniel Lake

This month, Integrity dig back into the exquisitely obscure by bringing out a righteously energetic cover of “Deathly Fighter” by Japanese (mostly) solo effort, the Randy Uchida Group.  We asked vocalist/mainstay Dwid Hellion about the process of choosing and recording the song, and here’s what he had to say.

Death, metal, “Wall of Death,” and vinyl. Get the inside story from our Ghoul contact in Creepsylvania. 

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Asphyx’s “Deathibel”

May 3, 2016 Daniel Lake

In this month’s issue of Decibel, we bring you a flexi so close to our hearts that it’s practically a third ventricle.  We got Asphyx mouthpiece Martin Van Drunen to talk about his relationship to the magazine and its editor, as well as the way the band put together our most recent edition of the flexi series.

This month, we wrangled the prolific East Coast trio Horrendous from their jobs holding down every recent Decibel event to discuss their contribution to the series.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Tribulation

March 7, 2016 Daniel Lake

This month, we contacted Swedish death miscreants Tribulation, whose 2009 debut, The Horror, perked up ears but whose subsequent efforts, including last year’s The Children of the Night, turned our collective heads all the way around, several times over.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Publicist UK

February 16, 2016 Daniel Lake

This month, we talked to every last damn member of 2015 eye-wideners Publicist UK about their inspired, curious choice of cover contribution.  We’ll leave the details up to Zack Lipez (vocals), Brett Bamberger (bass) and the Davids (Obuchowski and Witte, guitar and drums respectively), but we were certainly as positively surprised and amazed at their work on Tori Amos’s “Precious Things” as we were about last year’s Forgive Yourself.

Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Church of Misery

February 2, 2016 Daniel Lake

This month, we talked to Tatsuhito Mikami of Japan’s Church of Misery (and to vocalist Scott Carlson) about their contribution,  a special mix of “Confessions of an Embittered Soul” from COM’s forthcoming And Then There Were None record.

Admit It: Church of Misery’s “Confessions of an Embittered Soul” Kills!

Talkin’ Bout Flex: Misery Index

December 11, 2015 Daniel Lake

We spoke with Mark Kloeppel of Baltimore’s Misery Index about his band’s contribution to the Flexi Series.  Misery Index’s song – a cover of Sepultura’s “Primitive Future” – can be found in our current issue (#135, January 2016, Lamb of God cover), but you can also check it out right here while you read Kloeppel’s comments on the recording’s origins and execution.
