Something Wicked in the Blood: Stream Hemotoxin’s “Biological Enslavement”
April 8, 2016 James Lewis
No parasites or dirty needles are involved. Hopefully.
Song Debut: Mirrors for Psychic Warfare, the New Project from Scott Kelly and Sanford Parker
March 31, 2016 James Lewis
“Oracles Hex” bewitches, entrances, and predicts a haunting full-length.
Album Premiere: Enter Bardus’ Sludge/Stoner/Noise World of Sound
March 30, 2016 James Lewis
Stream their second full-length, Stella Porta, for an “escape and outlet from real life” that’s crushing, hazy, hallucinatory, and caustic, all at the same time.
Exclusive Song Premiere: Space Out with Mithras
March 7, 2016 James Lewis
Get out past the stratosphere with a new track from the upcoming On Strange Loops.
Video Premiere: Drawers — “Shadow Dancers”
November 10, 2014 Justin Norton
Early in 2014, your friends at the Deciblog premiered the self-titled full length from the French sludge metal band Drawers (yes, this is a real thing). My cohort Jonathan Horsley described it as “a heavy album, weighty enough to compromise the lumbar but not quite enough to crush the spirit; shit, it’s heavy and gentle,…
STREAMING: Beyond Creation’s “Earthborn Evolution”
September 10, 2014 Justin Norton
“It’s a testament to the boundless creativity of modern, progressive metal.” That’s what label Season Of Mist is saying about the sophomore album from tech death Quebecers (wrestling joke intended) Beyond Creation. Now, if you’re in the label business these days part of your job is saying good things about your roster so people will…
Premiere: New Grave Digger lyric video
May 30, 2014 Justin Norton
The metal institution known as Grave Digger has been around almost as long as the genre of heavy metal. They will release their seventeenth album (yes, that’s correct) called Return Of The Reaper on July 11. Your friends at Decibel got a chance to premiere the lyric video of the track “Season Of The Witch.”…
Decibel Exclusive: First New Meatmen Track in 19 Years!
April 1, 2014 Justin Norton
This is not an April Fool’s joke, except on the politically correct thought police: We have the first new Meatmen track in two decades! When I was a kid I sat in my room and cranked The Meatmen at ridiculous volumes and memorized Tesco Vee’s banter on the classic Meatmen platters. So to say this…
Decibel Premiere: A Pale Horse Named Death video
August 28, 2013 Justin Norton
Throughout the summer, we walked readers through the making of the new A Pale Horse Named Death video in the blog series “A Glimpse Behind The Horse.” Today, we’re premiering the video exclusively on the Deciblog. Watch the video for “DMSLT” below and then let us know what you think.
STREAMING: Defeated Sanity’s “Naraka”
January 9, 2013 Justin Norton
And so begins the relentless stream of new metal releases of 2013. First out of the gate is some tried and true death metal courtesy of Germany’s Defeated Sanity. dB is streaming the second track “Naraka” off upcoming album Passages Into Deformity, due Feb. 5 and available for preorder from Willowtip. The band describes the…
STREAMING: Family: “Bridge & Tunnel”
September 4, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
We’re sorry to do this to you, but this little premiere we’re going to bust out today, is going to make the next several weeks drag on as you anxiously await the release of Family’s debut album for Pelagic, Portrait, on October 30. We can guarandamntee you we will be spinning our advance copy incessantly….
STREAMING: Nihill’s “Trauma: Crushing Serpens Mercuriales”
August 14, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
To paraphrase the almighty David Lee Roth, “Summertime’s here, babe, need something to keep you cool. Better look out now, Decibel‘s got somethin’ for you.” Some frozen fuckin’ Dutch black metal on stick, that’s what we’ve got. Minus the stick. But full-on frostbitten, we swear. This premiere is guaranteed to drop the ambient temperature in…
STREAMING: Scott Kelly Solo Album Song Premiere
August 7, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Although you might remember him from such Neurosis albums as Souls at Zero, Enemy of the Sun and Through Silver in Blood, let’s not forget that guitarist/vocalist Scott Kelly has staked out quite a nice little solo career outside of the band. His latest release, which “streets,” as the kids say, on August 14 (Neurot),…
STREAMING: Exclusive premiere of Tankard’s “A Girl Called Cerveza”
July 3, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Since we know that a few of you may be enjoying frosty barley pops and doing your best not to blow a limb off tomorrow while celebrating Independence Day, we figured a Tankard song premiere was in order. Yeah, don’t ask us how we got from Point A to Point B on that one, but…
STREAMING: Old Man Gloom Premiere Brand New Track!
June 19, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Sure, other “music-related” sites bring you premieres of new tracks every other day. Even NPR has been known to throw a metal album on the interweb for your consumption. But you know where to go for the really good shit, right? That’s right, some to the killingest, trooest labels in all of metaldom entrust us…
Exclusive Premiere: New Bible of the Devil track!
May 8, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Unlike some of our previous “premieres,” this one is timed just perfectly. Chicago trad-metal quartet, Bible of the Devil, will be releasing their sixth full-length album, For The Love Of Thugs And Fools, today, May, 8 via Cruz Del Sur Music. It’s their first full-length, since 2008’s Freedom Metal and it’s just the kind of…
Exclusive Video Premiere From “Last Days Here”
February 28, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Much of Bobby Liebling’s life seems completely improbable. The Pentagram singer, despite a decades-long battle with drug addiction, is alive today and still performing. And Pentagram’s musical career/trajectory has been even more bizarre. Starting in the early ’70s, the band has experienced tumultuous lineup changes (and break-ups), botched recording deals and enough drama for a…
Exclusive Unsane Premiere From Wreck
February 21, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Two of our most memorable live concert experiences ever happened at Unsane shows in Seattle. This NYC trio originated from the same scene that spawned Helmet, Pussy Galore, Boss Hog and a bunch of other earhole-scraping noise mongers in the early 1990s. Between their Am Rep/Sub Pop label connections and the general loud/heavy/distorted aesthetic, they…
Streaming: Goatwhore Premiere from Blood For the Master
January 23, 2012 Adem Tepedelen
Talk about a kick-ass way to start the week. Not only did we put the Big Easy’s finest purveyors of blackened thrash, Goatwhore, on the cover of our current issue, we managed to wrangle a new tune off their upcoming Metal Blade album, Blood For the Master. “When Steel and Bone Meet” is everything we…
O’Brother Premiere Track From New Album
November 8, 2011 Adem Tepedelen
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…
Skeletonwich Exclusive Video Reveal of Triple Gatefold Art
September 20, 2011 Adem Tepedelen
OK, vinyl nerds, pay attention. What you’re about to witness is a little teaser from the fellas in Skeletonwitch and their label Prosthetic Records. In case you haven’t heard, Skeletonwitch will be releasing their fourth long-player, Forever Abomination, via Prosthetic on October 11 in North America. It’ll be available in three different formats but the…
Saviours – Crete’n Video Premiere!
September 8, 2011 Frank Lemke
If you haven’t listened to Death’s Procession yet, then let this be your wake-up call: you’re fucking up, buddy. Without further bullshit, I think this video makes my point. And this tour is outrageously heavy. I will talk about the time I saw Saviours with Weedeater for years, unless I black it out. Since I…
The Fucking Wrath Premiere New Fucking Track
September 6, 2011 Adem Tepedelen
Take a listen to our premiere of the new song, “Altar of Lies,” from The Fucking Wrath’s new album, Valley of the Serpent’s Soul. The Fucking Wrath “Altar of Lies” by Decibel Magazine Heavy, huh? Well, this aural onslaught is nothing compared to the brutality one occasionally suffers at the hands of one’s offspring. The…
