Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition II): Christopher S. Feltner

July 25, 2014

It’s been a good month for celebrating the noisier side of the extremely extreme.  All good things must end… though it’s hard to believe that we won’t be revisiting gritty, shadowy, unfettered sound in the future, if only here on the Deciblog. To round out the month of noise, we spoke to Virginia-based Christopher S….

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition): Guillermo Pizarro

June 27, 2014

By now, many of you are enjoying Decibel’s August issue, #118.  Perhaps you’re excited because it’s The Godflesh Issue, and the emphatically awesome return of that project is certainly worthy of your enthusiasm.  Maybe you’re psyched about it being The Melvins HOF Issue, a look back on an extraordinary record by an influential band that…

International Noise Conference: The Movie

February 11, 2014

Tickets for the Miami International Film Festival sure-to-be cacophonous premiere of the documentary International Noise Conference 2013 go on sale this Friday, so it seemed like as good a time as any to check in with director Ronnie Rivera… How did the idea for the doc come about? I have been photographing the noise community…

In Person Aural Devastation: Author & Punisher Live

September 16, 2013

Decibel has made no secret of our love for the idiosyncratic have-to-see-it-to-believe-it one-man doom behemoth Author & Punisher. And these insane videos from the band’s recent performance at the Fillmore basically speak for themselves. So…further comment is probably unnecessary. The new record, Women & Children, is available here. Bonus: The Lynch-ian video for “Terrorbird” after…

GIVEAWAY: Flourishing Complete Digital Discog + Tee

November 13, 2012

Since Brooklyn trio Flourishing is releasing the digital version of its latest 3-song EP, Intersubjectivity, via The Path Less Traveled today we figured it would be a good opportunity to give some stuff away to mark the occasion.

How About Some Split Cranium (feat. Aaron Turner)?

March 27, 2012

So had everything worked out just right, we’d be giving you an exclusive premiere of this track from Split Cranium. However, considering the fact the album came out last week, some of you may have already “premiered” it on your home stereo. And, as such, the “exclusive” part of this is moot. For those of…

O’Brother Premiere Track From New Album

November 8, 2011

We can’t speak for our fellow Decibloggers, but our own goal for these weekly dispatches is to entertain, inform and occasionally enlighten. Beyond that, anything goes, just as long as it’s within the “extremely extreme” wheelhouse. So, today we’re offering up the premiere of a track from a band that we could hardly argue is…

NOW STREAM THIS: WOLD Badb

October 24, 2011

With the release of last year’s beyond bizarre Working Together for our Privacy Canadian black metal/noise duo Wold appeared to have misplaced their minds. What really should have been some sort of haunting, spectral noise record was in the cold light of day just one sustained fog of static that was the ultimate challenge for…
