Domkraft’s Martin Wegeland performs vocals on “Ourang Medan,” which Decibel is […]

Vanishing Kids and their new album Heavy Dreamer skate around easy classification. There are clear influences from doom (“Mockingbird”) and heavy psych (skip to anywhere on the album), but there’s also plenty of shoegaze and occult rock sensibilities thrown in for good measure and maximum weirdness. The album came out in late November, so you can listen to […]

Riparian, the eponymous new EP from the Pittsburgh-based group, is built on a slab of primitive, almost brutal, classic death metal and enhanced by elements of doom and grindcore. That’s on full display on tracks like “Consumed by What is Unknown,” which starts at a slow, doomy tempo before breaking into a grinding gallop two […]

Desperate Living are a brand new band based out of Philadelphia, but they’ve already begun to find a unique sound. Comprised of members from The Minor Times, Ladder Devils and CRUISR, Desperate Living combine a noise rock swagger with the moodiness of Converge. Their debut album, New Concrete, is slated for a March 1 release on Brutal Panda […]

Seattle deathgrind crew Theories (featuring Black Breath guitarist Lee McGlothlen) first emerged in 2014 on a split with Canada’s WAKE before releasing their debut album, Regression, in 2015. Four years later, they’re back with Vessel, a ten-track ripper that crashes upon the listener in wave after wave of riff-driven intensity. The album’s opener, “Human Vessel Cell,” leads the way […]

Stalwart readers will remember when Demo:listen featured these Salvadorans last year, but for those of you just hearing of them: Witchgöat hail from San Salvador and theirs is an especially lethal combination of mid-90s Scandinavian black metal, early Teutonic thrash, and Sudamerican death. Formed by P. Scyther (guitarist) in 2016, and joined by M. Miasma […]

When I found out that Total Fucking Destruction bassist/vocalist Ryan Moll was starting up a new project called In the Fire, I was intrigued. What I didn’t expect was for Volatile Beings to be so diverse, blending blackened thrash with elements of doom and melodic death metal. Throughout, Moll and session drummer Patrick Battaglia unleash high-energy, balls-to-the-wall songs […]

Bazillion Points, the heavy metal publishing house founded by Sound of the Beast author Ian Christe, turns 10 this year.

To celebrate the anniversary, Decibel corralled authors from the BP stable to discuss their own works […]
