MORBID ANGEL's STEVE TUCKER On I AM MORBID: 'They're Not Creating Anything New'

MORBID ANGEL frontman Steve Tucker says that David Vincent‘s I AM MORBID project is “not creating anything new.” Launched in December 2016, I AM MORBID plays material from MORBID ANGEL‘s “Altars Of Madness” (1989), “Blessed Are The Sick” (1991), “Covenant” (1993) and “Domination” (1995) albums — all records that Vincent originally sang on. Tucker, who is back for his third spell with MORBID ANGEL, was asked in a new interview with The Jimmy Cabbs 5150 Interview Series if he feels I AM MORBID is “some form of a sabotage” or “some form of a distraction to divide the fanbase.” He … Continue reading

STEVEN ADLER Sets Record Straight Regarding Inspiration For MÖTLEY CRÜE's 'Kickstart My Heart'

Steven Adler has disputed Nikki Sixx‘s version of the events that inspired the lyrics for the classic MÖTLEY CRÜE song “Kickstart My Heart”. Sixx has long claimed that he wrote “Kickstart” about one night in 1987 when he took so much heroin that his heart stopped and an EMT pronounced him dead, before two shots of adrenaline right into his heart woke him back up. Recorded for CRÜE‘s 1989 album “Dr. Feelgood”, “Kickstart My Heart” only reached No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it is widely seen as one of the group’s greatest songs. Adler discussed the inspiration … Continue reading

ALICE IN CHAINS Guitarist On Hypothetical ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME Induction: 'That's A Nice Thought'

ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell says that it is “nice” to think that his band could eventually be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The Seattle-based group, which has been eligible to be inducted into the Rock Hall since 2015, has yet to be nominated, even though two other “grunge bands” from the same scene — NIRVANA and PEARL JAM — have already gotten the nod. Asked by 105.7 The Point‘s Donny Fandango if they think they have a good chance of entering the Rock Hall, Cantrell said (see below): “Well, that’s a nice thought, man. … Continue reading

No Corporate Beer: Short and Stout

Welcome to No Corporate Beer, Decibel’s new beer-spotting, consumer guide where we drink a beer and a then review it. Now that we’ve established that complex formula, let’s do this: Beer: Short and Stout Brewery: Owl’s Brew Radler Style: Shandy / Radler 5% ABV / 10 IBU We’re all busy human beings, so here’s the executive summary upfront: “Sh-t Shandy.” Short and Stout is, quite possibly, the worst beer currently on the market not specifically intended to get high school kids tipsy. Its ingredient list is a crime against humanity: chocolate stout, blended with masala chai tea AND pineapple juice AND coconut … Continue reading

Album Review: At the Gates – “To Drink From the Night Itself”

The Resistance Wakes When the Sun Sets After lineup changes, At the Gates prove the only thing darker than their melodies is our history When Swedish melodeath pioneers At the Gates helped establish Gothenburg as a death metal haven in the early to mid ’90s, it was with ornate riffs that could slice through tombstones. Now releasing their second post-reunion record, their sense of high drama even accompanies the unveiling of a new album title. When their #TDFTNI hashtag mystery revealed To Drink From the Night Itself, the title’s grandeur brought to mind the band’s pre-Terminal Spirit Disease records. Sure, … Continue reading
