Is Ghost’s Third Album Their Best Yet?

July 17, 2015 Albert Mudrian

They count James Hetfield, Phil Anselmo, Fenriz and Nergal among their fans. No pressure, right? Not for cloaked Swedish occultists Ghost, who should only expand their global dominance with third album Meliora

C/D: Performance Art is Metal

July 9, 2015 Matt Solis

From Alice Cooper’s face paint and Iron Maiden’s elaborate stage sets to Watain’s demon-summoning rituals and Ghost’s hooded robes, heavy metal has always had a close relationship with “performance.” Substance comes first, without a doubt, but performance ain’t far behind. Dimmu Borgir dress up like Satanic carnival barkers. Glen Benton branded an upside-down crucifix into his forehead. Robb Flynn had that Insane Clown Posse hair during The Burning Red days. Simply put, the spectacle of creating extreme music seems to be one of its most potent aspects, and countless bands have used it to their advantage.

Season Of The Witch: The Ideas Behind Metal’s Occult Revival

January 12, 2015 Justin Norton

Any astute follower of metal in the past five years has likely noticed a huge uptick in the number of bands with a proto-70s sound and occult themes: The Devil’s Blood, Sabbath Assembly, Blood Ceremony and The Oath. A few of these bands have been on Decibel’s cover: In Solitude and Ghost B.C. (twice). While…

Jeff Speed (writer/director) interviewed

April 4, 2012 Chris Dick

** Writer, director and videographer Jeff Speed discusses the finer aspects of Municipal Waste’s “Fatal Feast” video and his affinity for ’80s sci-horror. How did you find the location? It’s pretty unique to film a metal video on the set of an old television series, especially one as cult as Firefly. Jeff Speed: I’ve actually…

IN SOLITUDE INTERVIEW: Frontman Hornper on The World. The Flesh. The Devil.

January 6, 2012 Jonathan Horsley

According to the wholly democratic, incorruptible and failsafe Decibel End of Year Poll, In Solitude’s superlative The World. The Flesh. The Devil. was officially the fourth-best album of 2011. (Yeah, in reality it was probably like the third best, but that doesn’t matter, not really. The thing is not to sleep on it.) The coltish…

Ancient VVisdom – “The Opposition” Video Premiere

December 8, 2011 Frank Lemke

Wow. Anyone who’s ever had a Satanic ritual knows that this is exactly what it’s like. A few dudes in a room full of spray paint fumes, with some instruments and a fire going. Depending on how drunk you get and what drugs you’re on, some pretty weird shit can go down. Lamentably, I’ve never…

Being Devin Townsend: Q&A with Ziltoid’s old man

October 28, 2011 Jonathan Horsley

Devin Townsend is on the phone and he’s freaking out because he’s booked four shows in London; over consecutive nights he’ll be playing Ki, Addicted, Deconstruction and Ghost in their entirety, and it’s a big fucking deal. It’s stressful. He’s also headlining Leeds, UK metal-fest Damnation, which he promises to go heavy on with the…
