Streaming: New Decimation track

If you are a regular Deciblog reader you’re probably wondering why we didn’t call out the new Decimation track name in the headline. Well, let’s just say it’s a bit of a tongue twister: “Devilish Domain Vortex in the Gloom of Wicked Ziggura.” Wait, what? That’s a verbal flourish that would make Willy Wonka proud. We’ll refer to it henceforth as “the new song.” Decimation is holding down the fort for technic ...

Sucker For Punishment: A Septuagenarian Stew

Metal scenesters have always had a problem with artists that “dabble” in metal. In a way, that’s easy to understand: heavy metal is an all-or-nothing style of music, one whose audience embraces as not only as a diversion but a lifestyle, and they fully expect the same kind of dedication to the music, art, and aesthetic from the musicians. Authenticity and sincerity are key to fans, and when an artist from o ...

The Deciblog Interview: Paul Di’Anno

“A lot has been written and said about me through the years — most of it bad, some of it untrue.” That’s the opening of the 2010 Paul Di’Anno biography The Beast, which reads more like a gritty LA noir novel than a musical memoir. If you were to read the book — a combination of the Mötley Crüe biography The Dirt and the Marquis De Sade — you’d think avoiding Di’Anno was in your best interest. Even if you di ...

Armand Majidi (Sick of it All) interviewed

** Decibel Hall of Famers Sick of it All know what it’s like to persevere. They’ve been around longer than most of us have been alive, toiling in the unsteady waters of hardcore/punk like strongmen of the Five Burroughs. Well, the legends have returned in the shape of new album, Last Act Of Defiance. It takes the Koller brothers and the rest of Sick of it All back to the group’s roots, the classic era of Ne ...

Fight Amp Studio Report, Part II

By Mike McGinnis Positive and negative. Quiet and loud. Angst and ease. Can’t have one without the other. This is a primary concept we’ve been working with on our new record and trying to incorporate as much contrast as possible in both the sound and the themes without steering too far from the sound we’ve previously crafted for ourselves. As much as we’re using this theme to our advantage, it’s bound to co ...

King Parrot Fly the North American Skies!

Two years ago, Aussie weirdos King Parrot’s debut full-length, Bite Your Head Off, unloaded itself on that continent.  Candlelight Records then released the album Stateside late last year, and the band of screwy-grindy-thrash-loving dudes have been flapping back and forth between land masses to support their renewed new-act status. We had a chance to ask King Parrot about everything tour related, just in ti ...

Encrotchment With Eddie Gobbo From Jar’d Loose: Week 6

The weird guy in the GOTHAM commercials: Who is he? I don’t want to watch the show. I just want to know who he is. The Joker? Eagles of Death Metal So, we are six weeks into the season. I think it’s safe to say the Broncos are the toast of the AFC, even though I think Philip Rivers is the league’s MVP at this point. But what about the NFC? Is it really the 3-2 Seahawks? We crowned them as 2014-2015 champs a ...
