Talkin ‘Bout Flex: Immolation

January 24, 2017

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.

April 18, 2014

Gospel of the Witches is a new project of Karyn Crisis (Crisis), Davide Tiso (Ephel Duath), Ross Dolan (Immolation), Danny Walker (Intronaut). If the lineup wasn’t cool enough, the musical statement — made by Ephel Duath’s Tiso — is quite something else. Check out Crisis’s explanation of the project. Says Crisis: “The album is a…

Pose Not, Lest Ye Be Windmilled: The 2013 dB Magazine Tour Starts TODAY

May 10, 2013

Houston may well be home to one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball history this year, so we threw them a bone in the form of the first gig of the 2013 Decibel Magazine Tour. You know the score: Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation bring the death and grind thunder, Cretin, Magrudergrind…

STREAMING: Immolation “Kingdom of Conspiracy”

March 21, 2013

Immolation’s been kicking the death metal coffin for longer than most of you—they formed in 1988—have been alive. Go back a few more years when the Yonkers troupe were Rigor Mortis (not to be confused with the Texas-based Hall of Famers Rigor Mortis) and before that Defcon, well, it’s fair to say the surviving members…

Immolation’s Bill Taylor and Demigod’s Esa Linden to guest host Metalenema

February 18, 2013

Plugging a radio show in this day and age seems kinda quaint when you consider that music can be streamed all over the Internet but, with upcoming guest DJs Bill Taylor from Immolation and Esa Linden of Demigod, Metalenema is a special case. Their show’s remit—death and black metal, both classic and contemporary, with “some…

LIVE REVIEW: Marduk and Immolation – Underworld, London

October 1, 2012

The concept of faith might be diametrically opposed to Marduk’s pitch-black worldview but the Swedish fundamentalists are worthy of yours. Of all the Second Wave black metal bands who still consider their iconoclastic craft a full-time concern, Marduk are the ones who always deliver. They could be accused of lacking a sense of adventure when…

INTERVIEW: Finland’s Gorephilia on playing death metal Sunshine State-style

August 20, 2012

Seeing as Florida’s output of death metal has slowed to a trickle as scene veterans spend more time on the road, less time in the studio, or just sweat it out in semi-retirement, you could do worse than check in on Finland’s Gorephilia. Gorephilia’s long-awaited debut LP Embodiment of Death is old-school all right, and…

Chris Barnes: Come Get Your Car!!

November 16, 2011

You know, with all the hoopla over Scion, an imprint of Toyota (gasp!), sponsoring music festivals, funding and pressing free CDs, and generally giving workaday bands (like Immolation, Wormrot, Enslaved) a chance to stick their head out of the boiling financial cauldron that is the music industry, it’s a wonder this commercial for Park Auto…

Ross Dolan (Immolation) Interviewed

November 2, 2011

People want to know the arrangement between Scion and Immolation. I’m sure you can attest to ‘underground’ metalheads being slightly skeptical of a car company’s involvement with a cult death metal act.Ross Dolan: I can see where some people may find it unusual that a company such as Scion would invest money into an underground…

Just When You Thought the Immolating Was Over…

August 2, 2011

What’s it take to walk the working class death metal mile? Immolation stalwarts Ross Dolan and Robert Vigna school Scion A/V on death metal’s majesty and decay in this exclusive follow-up to the Decibel premiere of the slick video for “A Glorious Epoch” last month. As a bonus, here is high quality footage of Immolation…

COVER ART: The Making of Abysmal Dawn’s “Leveling the Plane of Existence”

January 25, 2011

When Charles [Elliott; vocals/guitar] contacted me the only lyrics that was written was Leveling the Plane of Existence. It makes reference to us crawling out from the primordial ooze and is basically about wiping us from the planet so that everything starts from zero again.

Scion Rock Fest 2011 – Unannounced Bands, uh Announced!

January 20, 2011

Scion A/V announced the partial line-up for the 2011 Scion Rock Fest. It was ridiculous! But it just got even more ridiculous! So much so, Scion A/V proposed to fly Decibot from his digital hovel to Pomona, CA to witness the awesomeness, but Decibot declined because the new Rev Theory album is imminent. OK, so…

Seraphic Decay Lives!

October 12, 2010

Seraphic Decay was a Midwest-based death metal label that enjoyed a productive, if very short, existence. The first release was a 7” by Ohio maniacs Minch, but releases by Rigor Mortis (pre-Immolation), Incantation, Mortician, Derketa, Disgrace, Abhorrence (pre-Amorphis) Agathocles, Disgrace, Xysma, and few more culties soon followed over the course of 1990 – 1992. At…
