STREAMING: Bloody Hammers — “Black Magic”

December 12, 2012

It looks like “occult rock” (i.e. heavier music with discernible song structures and radio potential) isn’t going away in 2013. We’re not sure if we were swayed by necromancy or the fact that there’s a naked lady on the cover (likely the latter) but we’re streaming an exclusive premiere of the track “Black Magic” by…

STREAMING: Burnt Books — “Selfish Friend”

December 5, 2012

It’s been a shitty year for literacy in the world of extreme music. First there was Pig Destroyer’s worth-waiting-for Book Burner. Despite the title there were plenty of words to go around with a J.R Hayes story short tucked into special editions. Now, we have the upcoming At A Loss debut from South Carolina-based experimental…

STREAMING: Bastard Sapling’s “Cold Winds Howled Across The Desolation”

November 21, 2012

Since the Decibel faithful are about to enter a restful trance of their own thanks to pounds of turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing (or tofurkey for all our vegan readers) we thought it was the right time to introduce a new track from Bastard Sapling’s Dragged From Our Restless Trance. Streaming below is “Cold Winds…

Full Album Stream: Venomous Maximus — “Beg Upon The Light”

October 24, 2012

Venomous Maximus isn’t a cover band that does a cool version of “Witching Hour.” This Houston band likes riffs, penned a song that’s an indirect ode to King Diamond (see below) and has earned comparisons to Pentagram and Electric Wizard. We’ll gladly take that over a Cronos impersonation. For your exclusive streaming pleasure, Venomous Maximus…

EXCLUSIVE: New VON music — “Jesus Stain”

October 3, 2012

Of all the bands to crawl back from the metal abyss here’s something we never expected. VON is releasing a new album at the end of October and dB got an exclusive stream of “Jesus Stain” from Satanic Blood. The band expects to play a limited run of shows. Take a listen below and then…

STREAMING: Lecherous Gaze — “War Woman”

September 12, 2012

We get a lot of music in these parts that doesn’t make you feel good. So dB will gladly accept sweet party anthems secure in the knowledge that many readers give ample spins to Appetite for Destruction when they are claiming to dissect some obscure 80-minute black metal opus. “War Woman” comes from Oakland’s Lecherous…

STREAMING: Family: “Bridge & Tunnel”

September 4, 2012

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: Scott Kelly Solo Album Song Premiere

August 7, 2012

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: Old Man Gloom Premiere Brand New Track!

June 19, 2012

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…
