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.

Introducing Green Death: Stream “Gates Of Hell”

April 15, 2015

Green Hell. Septic Death. Green Death? Yes, that’s the moniker for a Des Moines thrash band looking to restore Iowa’s reputation in the extreme metal world after decades of Slipknot. We actually picked up on Green Death in our print edition, with an effusive review that said: “this Des Moines outfit plays a classy brand…

Streaming: Psychomancer’s “Bastards Burn”

April 8, 2015

It’s Wednesday, possibly the second shittiest day of the week. Do you feel like some death metal? Of course you do. For your streaming pleasure today we have “Bastards Burn” from Psychomancer’s new EP Inject The Worms, released yesterday by Orchestrated Misery. This is good stuff if bands like Jungle Rot and early Malevolent Creation…

Streaming: Infernal War’s “No Forgiveness”

March 23, 2015

Poland’s Infernal War has been relatively quiet for the better part of a decade. The band is about to release their new full-length album Axiom via Agonia Records. Here’s their take: “Axiom is the essence of Infernal War. At the same time, it’s not a copy of our previous works. The new material is more…

Streaming: Gouge’s “Breath Of The Reaper”

March 16, 2015

The Ohio brothers behind the indomitable Hell’s Headbangers label don’t fuck with the formula. Their excellent releases during the past two years or so include Midnight, Nunslaughter (a new EP every month), Shitfucker and, err…Goat Semen. You can welcome the appropriately named bangers in Gouge to the extended dysfunctional clan. Like many of their brethren…

Streaming: Three Cuts From Unruh’s New Retrospective

March 11, 2015

Long before guitarist Ryan Butler joined Landmine Marathon he played with the Phoenix hardcore band Unruh. During their five-year run (from 1995 to 2000) they released multiple demos, two albums and toured widely. In addition to seeding Landmine they birthed a rogue’s gallery of Arizona hardcore bands. Unruh recently celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a…

Streaming: Sorcerer’s “Sumerian Script”

February 26, 2015

There’s going to be a lot of alliteration today, faithful Deciblog readers. Sorcerer formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1988 and was active until 1992. But, as we’ve seen many times, good metal bands never die — they just reunite. Sorcerer got back together for a one-off show at the Hammer Of Doom festival in Germany…

Streaming: Nepente’s “Show Me That You Are Suffering”

February 25, 2015

Show me that you are suffering? Game on. People are still talking about The Academy Awards. Purina faces a lawsuit alleging their pet food is filled with toxic ingredients. Your album cover is sort of creepy. And it’s Wednesday. Streaming today: “Show Me That You Are Suffering” from the Colombian black/death metal band Nepente. The…

Streaming: Sandrider’s “Rain”

February 4, 2015

We will never miss a chance to host some new music from our friends in Sandrider. They were the band, after all, that premiered a song here on the ways one might conceivably become the ultimate urban legend. If our math is correct this is the third time they’ve made a streaming appearance on the…

Streaming: Sabertooth Zombie’s “Gardens Of Loss”

February 4, 2015

How have you spent the past decade? Think you’ve been productive?

Today, we are streaming “Gardens Of Loss” from Human Performance IV, the fouth and…

Streaming: Monolith’s “Caravan”

January 28, 2015

Gore House Productions is known for their embrace of some of the most depraved death metal on the planet. The bulk of their catalog would be considered NSFW. But gore-hound-in-chief Carlos Matt is launching a sister label called Funeral Noise Records that aims to embrace different and, dare we say, more accessible metal. Decibel got…

Streaming: Wolfpack 44 with Jinx Dawson

January 21, 2015

Decibel is stoked to premiere “To The Devil…A Daughter,” a track from the debut Wolfpack 44 album The Scourge, featuring additional vocals from Jinx Dawson, frontwoman of the legendary occult band Coven. Coven also released a version of the song on their latest album Jinx (Nevoc Music). Dawson wrote the lyrics, and Wolfpack 44 guitarist…

STREAMING: Outer Heaven’s “Vile Rebirth”

December 15, 2014

Publicist guy says: “We think you’ll like this — it sounds like Coffins.” So, we decide to check it out because we love Coffins. And yes, we can hear that a bit but we hear even more similarities to Mitochondrian and Decibel favorites Incantation. These are promising comparisons for extreme metal. Despite throwing out a…

Full Album Stream: NervoChaos

December 10, 2014

Ah, December — the time of the year when everyone puts out their “best of” lists and thinks about albums that will come out in summer 2015. We’re just as guilty at Decibel; our annual top 40 extravaganza is probably on your nightstand. This would lead you to think that no new music comes out…

Album Stream and Giveaway: Murder Junkies

December 3, 2014

Old outlaw scumfucs never die. Actually, the virtuous go first and the bad people continue along in almost cockroach fashion. They’re unkillable. Case in point: Merle Allin, brother of the legendary musical outlaw GG. You might hate GG but you certainly know about him. Not only did Merle survive life with one of the craziest…

Q&A and Album Stream: Boddicker

November 19, 2014

If you don’t dig deep into the demos reviewed in our print edition you will miss many gems. Case in point: Boddicker‘s nasty little album Crime Upheaval, which reminded us of classics like World Downfall and Misery Index with Brujeria theatrics. Boddicker is actually the name of the villian in the original Robocop so there’s…

Streaming: New Decimation track

October 22, 2014

If you are a regular Deciblog reader you’re probably wondering why we didn’t call out the new Decimation track name in the headline. Well, let’s just say it’s a bit of a tongue twister: “Devilish Domain Vortex in the Gloom of Wicked Ziggura.” Wait, what? That’s a verbal flourish that would make Willy Wonka proud….

Full Album Stream: Inferion’s This Will Decay

October 13, 2014

Florida and death metal are practically synonymous. Most of that has to do with the legendary albums cranked out of Morrisound in the 90s by Obituary, Death, Cannibal Corpse and other luminaries. But don’t forget Miami, which is the home of Decibel favorite grinders Maruta and birthed Hall Of Fame inductees Cynic. Let’s showcase a…

STREAMING: White Empress — “A Prisoner Unleashed”

September 17, 2014

Peaceville: the venerable label is home to some of Decibel‘s all time favorites: Darkthrone, Autopsy and My Dying Bride.

Today we’re streaming some Peaceville-approved symphonic metal: “A Prisoner Unleashed” from the forthcoming White Empress album…

STREAMING: Beyond Creation’s “Earthborn Evolution”

September 10, 2014

“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…
