Book to Film to Crushing Death Metal Song to Intense Video: Hideous Divinity Premiere

May 3, 2016 James Lewis

Yes, that’s a music video of the title track of an album with the same name as a full-length film rendition of a novel. And Hideous Divinity‘s is no less complex in practice, so go ahead and press play for some brain food (/and bludgeoning).

Watch: New Agnostic Front Video

April 7, 2015 Justin Norton

Agnostic Front has provided their New York brand of hardcore beatdown to generations of listeners. Incredibly, they are still at it it today more than three decades after their formation. Their new album The American Dream Died shows that they haven’t lost their edge even if a few members are a little longer in the…

Video Premiere: Lay Siege “Hollow Hands”

February 11, 2015 Justin Norton

Boy, it’s easy to get lost in music videos these days. In the latest black-and-white video for Lay Siege’s “Hollow Hands” the English sludge/hardcore hybrid certainly does their best headbanging. But the camera keeps panning to a guy who looks like a community college English professor who is very pissed off at the book he’s…

Premiere: Shredhead’s Incredible New Animated Video

February 9, 2015 Justin Norton

The videos that arrive at Decibel headquarters are often predictably bad. There are the things we loathe (lyric videos), things we find annoying (videos talking about the making of videos) and the low budget (we’ll just record ourselves playing live and hope people give a shit). Boy, did Shredhead’s new animated stop motion video just…

Exclusive: Napalm Death Video Premiere

January 23, 2015 Justin Norton

Folks, that’s an animated Barney Greenway. Consider us chuffed. Napalm Death was recently featured on our cover in conjunction with the release of their massive new album Apex Predator-Easy Meat. In our story last month Greenway told us: “I know it sounds sickeningly upbeat but I’ve never gone into a show and been in the…

Video Premiere: Karma To Burn’s “57”

January 7, 2015 Justin Norton

Post-holiday doldrums. The coldest time of the year, especially with climate change. It’s time for your favorite band to get the 30-year-old van out of the garage and challenge ice storms and snowpiles to play for your benefit. West Virginia’s favorite sons Karma To Burn will be one of the brave soliders taking to the…

NSFW: Couch Slut’s Cover Conundrum

December 8, 2014 Justin Norton

We’re not at all shocked that a band called Couch Slut had trouble printing the artwork to their new album My Life As A Woman. And that’s before we even saw the image — a nothing-is-hidden illustration of felicitous fellatio too racy for ribald 70s tome The Joy Of Sex (check it out on their…

Musk Ox: Video Premiere Part 1

November 26, 2014 Justin Norton

What’s a Musk Ox? Is it some sort of rare delicacy that your backwoods family member serves up at Thanksgiving Dinner? According to the sages at Wikipedia a musk ox is: an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted during the seasonal rut by males,…

Video Premiere: Mysticum Track-By-Track

November 12, 2014 Justin Norton

Ah, Mysticum, how you’ve been missed. There was so much talk for so long about the comeback album Planet Satan that we were convinced the record was either a myth or an elaborate troll. But no: Planet Satan was released this fall after decades of speculation, marking the return of a band audacious enough in…

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,…

Video Premiere: Deadkill’s “Shakes”

November 5, 2014 Justin Norton

Massive hangovers! Camel breath! Riffs! Hair of the dog shots! Barfing on video! Fortunately, these guys decided to walk to the bar for another day of partying. The aforementioned bad behaviors are in full effect in the low production cost but high comedic value video debut of Deadkill’s “Shakes.” Decibel premiered the No, Never! album…

db Exclusive: The National Anthem Courtesy of Exmortus

August 27, 2014 Justin Norton

Decibel‘s love of baseball is well documented, from the staff baseball road trip of years past recounted in the oral history of the magazine’s first decade to our annual baseball special. Our editor-in-chief is at this moment wondering why fate decided he should edit an extreme metal magazine rather than play in the majors. So…

Our GWAR bobblehead contest winner!

July 14, 2014 Justin Norton

We’d like to say that we were overwhelmed with video responses paying tribute to Oderus. Actually, it’s probably appropriate that too many people were busy partying this summer to record an ode. But one proud blog reader stands out: Mr. Kyle Messick. True to our word we are sharing his video entry with the world…

Fatality’s Wintour Diary

February 19, 2014 Justin Norton

Last summer, the young bucks in Fatality wrote a cogent piece for the Deciblog on how you can successfully crowdfund a project without pissing off fans. As a result, we got to know bassist Adam Zed pretty well and found him to be a likeable and hilarious chap. Then, he approached the Deciblog about doing…

Decibel Premiere: IRON REAGAN video

December 18, 2013 Justin Norton

Today we close down operations for the Wednesday afternoon Deciblog in 2013 with one more batch of awesome.

This is our fourth post from director Aaron Beaucher on the making of the new A Pale Horse Named Death video “DMSLT.” An updated gallery follows. — During the past few weeks, we’ve been working on integrating the effect shots into the video. The process can be cumbersome. The first step was to import our…
