DEAD & BURIED TREASURES: HIDDEN TRACKS WORTH UNEARTHING

February 24, 2016

Where were you when you first unlocked an unlisted track after a long period of dubious silence as a record played possum? Or when you noticed an album creeping up to track 69, where Tool’s “Disgustipated” lurked at the edge of Undertow? If you were born after 1995, maybe never.

Czar Issues Decree: Top Five Godflesh Songs

April 15, 2014

Intro-ing the full-album stream last November of the sophomore effort from Czar, No One is Alone if No One is Alive, our pals over at MetalSucks praised this ultra-power trio for “effectively straddl[ing] the line between precise tech-y metal and earthy post-hardcore” — an apt observation we won’t quibble with here. In recognition of Czar’s…

Ode From A Backstabber

January 7, 2014

Following up a Kamikaze Mission is a no small challenge, but M.I.A., the decade-in-the-making barn burner of a comeback record from reconfigured/reborn Backstabbers Inc, proves a gloriously triumphant gut-check collection of anthemic dark hardcore — not to mention a helluva way to kick off the new year! Decibel is proud to present an exclusive stream…

LIVE REVIEW: Neurosis + Godflesh, HMV Forum, London

December 4, 2012

There really is no good reason for anyone to be bummed out about missing out on an ATP weekender when the days following the main event habitually throw up bills as awesome as this. A weekend spent emptying your bank account, taking drugs unknown to the over-30s and known only by weird acronyms, enjoying the…

Requiem Metal Podcast: Pinged, Weakened & Chuffed by Hard ‘N Heavy’s Grindcore Special

January 24, 2012

There are game changers and then there are game changers. I wouldn’t say Hard ‘N Heavy’s Grindcore Special Issue was a game changer in the same way Entombed, Paradise Lost, Napalm Deafth (phonetic spelling, natch), Bolt Thrower, Tiamat, and many others were in the dimmest part of the early ’90s, but it, unlike any Xeroxed…

WIN STUFF: Celebrate 25 years of Earache by winning a bunch of swag!

January 13, 2012

Earache records is officially 25 years young this year. While it was the vinyl-only release of The Accüsed’s The Return of Martha Splatterhead that marked the label’s debut, it was the release of Napalm Death’s inconic/incendiary/etc debut, ‘87’s Scum, that started an uncanny hot-streak for the label, one which saw them go on to bogart…

LIVE REVIEW: DAMNATION FESTIVAL 2011

November 7, 2011

Welcome to University of Leeds. This is Damnation Festival’s seventh year, the fourth since moving to the three-stage venue. It’s no minor triumph to last seven years as an underground metal-fest, packing the punters in when having to compete with larger festivals with their larger budgets, surviving all that industry bullshit at a time when…

Justin Broadrick interview: Godflesh, growing up and anarcho-punk

October 7, 2011

If Godflesh’s supremo of beats ‘n’ riffs, Justin K. Broadrick, is having trouble getting an unbroken night’s sleep, it’s not the attendant stress of having resurrected the industrial metal project for near-monthly live excursions after a near-ten-year hiatus. It’s not their forthcoming appearance at UK metal-fest Damnation that’s worrying him either, because he and Ben…
