The Phantom of the Paradise is Back!

Never thought I’d get to meet the devil Never thought I’d meet him face to face Heard he always worked alone, that he seldom wrote or used a phone So I walked right up to meet him at his place Two years before unleashing Carrie on the world in 1976, Brian DePalma concocted the profoundly weird, unabashedly flamboyant horror-flick-meets-rock-opera romp Phantom of the Paradise — a brilliant film as gleefully ...

Bad Mojo: Death Curse Premiere!

So…here’s one of those times when you actually can go ahead and judge an album by its cover: Friday the 13th obsessives Death Curse play nasty, fuzzy, stripped down death n’ roll and the band isn’t really isn’t inclined to do fuck-all to pretty it up for anyone outside the horror metal cult. We’ve got an exclusive track from the upcoming debut on Razorback Records later this year. Get grimy or get scared — ...

STREAMING: Saturn “So, You Have Chosen Death”

Retro is cool. Retro is where the girls are at. Retro is where the dollars are at. If you’re retro, you’ve got it made. Unless you’re in the business of retro heavy metal. Then, you just get the girls. Just ask Swedes Saturn. With just a few strums of their throwback axes and bygone haircuts, they hook in the ladies. Actually, we have no idea about their womanizing abilities. But we do know the Swedes take ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition II): Christopher S. Feltner

It’s been a good month for celebrating the noisier side of the extremely extreme.  All good things must end… though it’s hard to believe that we won’t be revisiting gritty, shadowy, unfettered sound in the future, if only here on the Deciblog. To round out the month of noise, we spoke to Virginia-based Christopher S. Feltner about his own journey through recordings and performance.  While he is most certain ...

Tombs’ Mike Hill: Hot Coffee Machine

Because Tombs frontman Mike Hill loves work and HATES sleep, he recently started his own company, Savage Gold Coffee, in an effort to completely eradicate the latter from everyone’s life. Their inaugural brew, Savage Gold Prime, is available for order here now. While presumably starin’ at the walls, Hill gave us the scoop. I’m guessing you are a daily coffee drinker, correct? Mike Hill: Absolutely. Yeah, I’ ...

Raw Power is Coming to America Again! Why So Glum Chum?

In addition to holding the illustrious (or dubious) honour of being one of my personal favourite bands of all time, Italy’s Raw Power is undoubtedly one of the most enduring and consistent hardcore punk bands to emerge from the world of hardcore punk. They formed in 1981 (with roots going back to the late 70s), have eleven awesome full-lengths comprising their extensive discography (yes, even Too Tough to B ...

Decibrity Playlist: Misery Index

Misery Index is no stranger to these playlists. In fact, we were in the midst of winter 2013 when bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton regaled us with “bleak tunes that recall those snowbound blizzards from yesteryear.” This time around, guitarist Mark Kloeppel went in a totally different direction to get you in the know about “hard” jams. We’ll let him take things from here: “‘Hard’ is a special set of subtly ...

Die With Scars: Mike Hill On Fight Club

This week brought the news that a Fight Club sequel (in comic book form) is forthcoming. We aren’t sure if this will work out for the best but it seemed like an ideal time to revisit a book and movie that inspired many. Mike Hill of Tombs has embraced the book’s underlying ideal: that you need to create something worth living outside of consumer culture. Hill is certainly doing that: he is the frontman of T ...
