Track Premiere: Royal Thunder, “Forgive Me, Karma”

Atlanta foursome Royal Thunder will be releasing Crooked Doors, the much-anticipated – and outstanding – follow-up to 2012’s standout CVI on April 7 via Relapse, but in the meantime the band has steadily been premiering new songs across the metal/hard rock internet, and today it’s our turn. Not only that, but we’ve been given one of the best tracks on the album, the subdued and surprisingly tender ballad “F ...

TERRA AT 20,000 FEET: Terra’s “Untitled” Album Stream

You like formless shrieking, right? Hell, what’s NOT to like? Especially when it sounds like it’s taking place in the void of space. Yes, I know technically you can’t hear anything in space, but nobody told these guys that. Terra, despite their name being rather earthbound, go for the more cosmic sort of black metal. These songs take their time, going for oppressive atmosphere instead of infernal evil. The ...

VargTube

Varg Vikernes, a 42-year-old father of three who lives in France, is only interested in one simple thing: Never shutting the fuck up. At least that seems to be what his Youtube channel is trying to prove. Burzum would’ve released roughly ten additional records about Orcs if Vikernes spent a little more time with his Casio and a little less with his GoPro. The dude will put up footage of literally anything, ...

The Brett Netson Masterclass: Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom.

Brett Netson. One of the most soulful, inventive, vivifying shredders on the face of the planet. Bringer of sublime aural sturm und drang via roots-y-alt-rock-meets-psychedelic-doom outfit Caustic Resin. Art rock force multiplier in Built to Spill. Vanquisher of smarmy motherfuckers. And, now, mastermind of a ridiculously killer multidimensional, dark snarling rock trio, Brett Netson & Snakes. On the oc ...

Streaming: Infernal War’s “No Forgiveness”

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 mature, diversified and bloody uncompromising. It’s very grim, both musically and lyrically. We have no do ...

Vicotnik (Dødheimsgard) interviewed

** Dødheimsgard’s new album, A Umbra Omega, is no joke (see mental strongman Vicotnik’s argument at the very bottom). It’s a vicious mind-warp of an album, aggressive in its obtuseness and adventurous in its boundlessness. It’s at once black metal (free think!) and not at all (non-conformist!). A Umbra Omega riffs on, then destroys said riffs on, previous albums 666 International and Supervillain Outcast. T ...

Studio Report: Drugs of Faith Record Split with Cloud Rat

I hate studio reports because I get to hear about music instead of the actual music. Like yeah, it’s great you’re doing something but I need that goodness hurled into my sound pits right now. But we should all be willing to wait for something like Drugs of Faith, the grind and roll three-piece led by Richard “Grindfather” Johnson (Enemy Soil, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) who have just recorded tracks for a split ...

Gearified: NAMM 2014

**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 #114 Matt took a trip to NAMM 2014, where “metal gear is indeed solid.” The National Association of Music Merchants, or NAMM, or “The NAMM” (careful—only ...

The Healing Monsters Benefit Anthology Releases its Cover

Something very radical has been brewing for a while to help someone in need and preserve another’s memory. Horror author/metalhead Dustin LaValley has been suffering from life-threatening Crohn’s/IBD issues while Metal Maniacs cofounder/former editor Katherine Ludwig lost her battle with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year, leaving an irreplaceable void in the community. This inspired the benefit poem/ ...
