If you’re in the mood for some carefully curated chaos and brutality*, then Chicago’s Nucleus has the perfect sound for you. The band plays a crushing style rooted in the weird and unpredictable legacy of bands like Demilich, Gorguts and Adramelech. The band certainly knows how to write a catchy riff. But at the same […]

So, it’s 1985, and Celtic Frost have just released their full-length debut, To Mega Therion. And just like that, extreme music is changed forever. We inducted the album into our Hall of Fame back in our May 2015 issue, and with Triptykon playing this weekend’s Decibel Metal & Beer Fest Philadelphia we had Tom Warrior […]

Decibel regular J. Andrew already broke the news that the new Neolithic EP is dark, heavy and crusty, but it bears repeating: the new, self-titled EP from Baltimore’s Neolithic totally rips. Neolithic checks in at a lean five songs, moving fluidly from groovy fight riffs to blast beats, swaddled in crust and always backed by Evan Harting’s cavernous screams. Everything […]

You’re forgiven for having never heard of Bloodphemy before. The Utrecht-based quartet formed originally in 2000, but that first run was a brief one. The band broke up in 2003, and it seemed like their demo Section 8 as well as their name were destined to molder forever in obscurity. Until drummer Edwin Nederkoorn and […]

If a battering ram of crusty death metal was what you need to get your day moving, allow Goregäng to step in and do the rest. Boasting quite the live lineup between the pair—guitarist/vocalist Jeramie Kling has played with Venom Inc. and drummer/guitarist Taylor Nordberg is an ex-live member of Soilwork and Gus G.—Goregäng deliver a […]
