Still Screaming After Thirty-Six Years: An Interview with Raw Power

August 3, 2017

We caught up with vocalist Mauro Codeluppi to discuss growing old, not giving a shit and the time they played with G’N’R.

Melodi-Punk-core Hotshots Drip-Fed Drag You down “Under the Wave Blanket”

February 8, 2017

It doesn’t take long to say a lot. Case in point is the song “Under the Wave Blanket” by the Austinites Drip-Fed, who pack plenty of pain and hope into 2 1/2 minutes. Though it helps that the music itself is the hooky, hulking kind of punk hardcore that makes you listen over and over until you develop welts.

VIDEO PREMIERE: ZEUS! DELIVERS EPIC, KING OF THE GODS WORTHY INSANITY ON “ENEMY E CORE”

November 16, 2016

Lord, Bologna duo Zeus! sure isn’t looking to make it easy for the File Under peeps to do their job with “Enemy E Core,” a proggy, fuzzed out noise punk take on math rock off the band’s Three One G release MOTOMONOTONO that sort of gives off a Rorschach-wandering-into-a-Pelican-practice-a-decade-ago vibe.

If that sounds like something you’d like to jam while watching various animal species throw down, Decibel totally has your hump day back.

Talking to Longmont Potion Castle About His New Documentary And 30 Years Of Comedy

November 2, 2016

“Longmont Potion Castle is a ritual shared by many a band out on the road, in shitty vans nationwide trying not to succumb to the sights and smells of America and choosing to end it all by going into oncoming traffic. It’s as if he’s a shadow member of some of these bands without ever even meeting them.”

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT: MP JOHNSON’S “RECORD COLLECTOR SCUM” From BERZERKOIDS

August 3, 2016

For those who had a hunch that the first short story collection from Wonderland Book Award-winning author/Freak Tension zine proprietor/Weirdpunk Books founder MP Johnson — a deft writer who refracts extremely extreme weird horror fiction through a legit prism of punk-metal-hardcore culture and attack — would be an exquisitely strange, beguiling, and brutal experience…. well, Berzerkoids certainly does not disappoint.

Hall of Fame Countdown: L7’s Bricks Are Heavy

June 9, 2016

L7’s seminal third LP stands the test of time via its excellent songs, hefty production (courtesy of the legendary Butch Vig), pithy lyrics and general “go fuck yourself” attitude. Ranking these nasty jams from “worst to best” is a downright punchable offense, but let’s do it anyway.
