Gearified: Seymour Duncan’s Dirty Deed Distortion Pedal

**Matt Olivo is the founding guitarist of extreme metal trailblazers Repulsion, whose Horrified LP ranks as Decibel’s #1 grindcore album of all time. Because we know that every reader ever plays guitar, we brought his print column to the Deciblog. In issue #118 Matt gave his feedback on Seymour Duncan’s Dirty Deed Distortion Pedal, which “brings the high voltage TNT.” Gearified has always been a staunch bel ...

For Those About to Squawk: Waldo’s Pecks of the Week

What up, fools? We got all of the things fine enough (or bad enough) for you to check out or don’t check out. So, let’s just get into it, shall we? Napalm Death release Apex Predator-Easy Meat. Attacking this one for review is a little difficult, as I typically don’t do the “this track, that track” sort of thing, but overall this is an intense record, albeit a little strange for Napalm. Not to say this thin ...

Hic Iacet Dig Up What Lies Buried

“Mysterious,” indeed.  When we heard the sonic sickness belched from Spanish sepsis-spewers Hic Iacet, we dimmed the lights and began casting about for something filthy to rub all over ourselves.  And we sought out an interview with the progenitors of these gruesome chords and vokills.  We were rebuffed, our request to gain access to the dark sanctum was denied, but that doesn’t change the fact that Iron Bo ...

SPOILING OUR READERS: Iron Reagan’s “Spoiled Identity” EP

Last June, we gave out a free Iron Reagan flexi disc to our subscribers, because we’re awesome like that. Still, that was free, and booze and drumsticks aren’t, so A389 have figured out a reason to charge you for it! It’s totally worth your hard-earned cash, though. Not only do you get two bonus tracks and support an awesome crossover thrash band, but it comes in the form of a limited 12″ that you can show ...

Encrotchment With Eddie Gobbo From Jar’d Loose: Super Bowl Edition

And more people pissed off than happy regardless of who wins or loses.   Erin Go Bragh(less) Before we delve heavily in to this Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup from hell, does anyone remember the Seattle/Green Bay game two weeks ago? It ended in dramatic fashion. Place goes apeshit! Seahawks mascot is d ...

Lo! (and Behold) It’s an Interview and Video Premiere!

Australian sludge metal miscreants, Lo! have decided to celebrate the arrival of new vocalist, Sam Dillon by dunking him repeatedly into a vat of what looks like congealed Pepto Bismol in their brand new video, “Orca.” While some may see the video below as evidence of some cruel hazing ritual (whatever happened to the good ol’ days when Metallica got the Misfits to beat the crap out of Jason Newsted and tra ...

Get Free Pallbearer Vinyl by Subscribing to Decibel

They’re too young for Hall of Fame consideration, but that’s probably the only honor Decibel hasn’t already bestowed upon Pallbearer. Both of their full-lengths have appeared in the top five of our year-end Top 40 list (Foundations of Burden being our favorite extreme album of 2014); they’ve graced the cover; they scored two slots in our Top 100 Doom Metal Albums of All Time issue; and they’re about to emba ...

VALLEY OF THE DAMNED: Wells Valley’s “Matter As Regent”

We don’t hear much about Portuguese metal, but pissed off dudes make pissed off music no matter the geographic location.

These six tracks will crush you in their powerful grip, leaving nothing but devastation behind. Check them out below. [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/74581828?s ...

Streaming: Monolith’s “Caravan”

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 a sneak peek of this new direction with a track from Monolith’s upcoming al ...
