Scion A/V

Scion A/V Music(Less) Music Conference – The State of Metal Merchandising

December 19, 2013

By now, Scion A/V, the creative enterprise of Scion, which is a subsidiary of Toyota, is familiar to most metallers. Take it as a multinational sticking its cash-filled fingers into the underground’s bum or as an unlikely benefactor to artists like Immolation, Arsis, Enslaved, Primordial, and countless more, the company willing to throw multi-stage music…

STREAMING: Scion A/V interviews Municipal Waste

August 16, 2013

Municipal Waste are no strangers to Decibel-land. Having performed admirably at our 100th Issue show, appeared as chefs on the cover of issue #89 [available HERE] and earned an honorable place on Albert’s mancave mantle, the Virginia-based thrashers are, well, like family. When Scion A/V approached us to air an exclusive interview with the Wastoids—in…

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…

Fight Amp (video interview)

February 21, 2011

South Jersey’s Fight Amp always sound as if they’re one fragile step away from total collapse. Line-up changes, guts-everywhere noise…er, music, and partakers in all things hard partying (rumored; maybe) are partial reasons for this particular ‘feeling’, but hearing Mike, Mike, and John coherently explain Fight Amp’s challenges (and production techniques) in this video interview…

November 22, 2010

It’s no fucking time to start a record label. Physical sales have been hit by multiple (and surgical) airstrikes, digital downloads have flatlined, and record stores (not the big box crap either) ain’t having it easy. So, what does Scion A/V do? Of all the crazy things to finance, even angelically, Scion A/V have started…

Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) Video Interview + Live

November 5, 2010

OK, it’s long established that the dudes at Scion A/V and the dudes at Decibel shake hands, break bread together, and then go home to blast some deathly hate over a glass of fine Merlot. If only to discuss and dissect the extremest of extremely extreme metal. That’s what dudes do. When Scion A/V has…

Black Anvil Video Interview + Live

October 15, 2010

Scion Rock Fest 2010: Black Anvil Interview from Scion A/V on Vimeo. Black Anvil may’ve formed out of the ashes of punk outfit Kill Your Idols three short years ago, but today they’re a black/thrash powerhouse. New album, Triumvirate, is merely the beginning of the New Yorkers’ future reign as kings of U.S. aggression. Recognizing…
