British death/thrash overlords Overthrow will haunt the metalverse ahead of Halloween with their new EP Ascension of the Entombed, available, conveniently enough, this Friday the 13th through Redefining Darkness Records. Formed in 2011 as a gritty thrash band in the London underground scene, Overthrow has evolved into an edgy, brutal, and merciless blackened death metal attraction made up of Jay White  (guitar/vocals), Scott Lindsay (drums), Grant McCallum (guitar – live) and Jamie Scougall (bass -live). Decibel proudly debuts their new EP in full. Ascension Of The Entombed by OVERTHROW ..read more

Full Album Stream: Putrascension – “Forever Below”
Decibel Magazine » Blackened Death Metal
by Emily Bellino
5M ago
Forever Below, the first long player from New Jersey-based blackened death dealers Putrascension, is the way that the genre should be played. Sharing members with Tombs, Replicant, Windfaerer, Hammer Fight and more than another dozen regional acts, Putrascension execute the songs on Forever Below with an equal combination of aggression and style. The songwriting on Forever Below doesn’t go super far beyond its collective influences, which tend to be melodic black metal and death metal with occasional flashes of metallic hardcore and black ‘n’ roll, but it nails those influe ..read more

Full Album Premiere: Appalling ‘Sacrilege’
Decibel Magazine » Blackened Death Metal
by Chris Dick
1y ago
The ultimate incantation of Appalling‘s new album, Sacrilege (via Redefining Darkness), lies in its savagery. From “Life In Prism” to “These People Need to Die,” the Virginians blast blackened death metal from Hell’s most hardened pits. There’s no remorse. No recourse. And certainly no restraint, as Appalling jackhammer angels of light with their insidious outlay. Formed in Richmond in 2015, Appalling–featuring members of rock ‘n’ roll mavens US Bastards and groove lords Fire Faithful–have forged out of fire and brimstone three full-lengths, the latest of which is the inimitable Sacrilege. Cer ..read more

We hope you’re all enjoying the first full summer of live metal shows since 2019. Since normalcy has mostly returned to the concert setting worldwide, it should follow that bands will be making live videos—real ones with actual enthusiastic crowds, in sweaty clubs. Swedish black metal trio In Aphelion, featuring Necrophobic members Sebastian Ramstedt (vocals/lead guitars/bass) and Johan Bergebäck (rhythm guitars) alongside Marco Prij (drums), have done just that, with a track from their full-length debut, Moribund, released in March this year via Edged Circle Productions. The new video w ..read more

Track Premiere: Vile Ritual – ‘Tongues of the Exanimate’
Decibel Magazine » Blackened Death Metal
by Vince Bellino
2y ago
Very little is known about American death metal entity Vile Ritual, but one thing is for certain: Tongues of the Exanimate, the upcoming release from the project, is an absolute wrecking ball of dirty, hallucinatory death metal. Case in point: the album’s title track, streaming below. Despite all of its raw aggression, “Tongues of the Exanimate” takes the black/death metal format and adds a psychedelic layer to it, giving the music an ominous tone. This dark psychedelia gives the song room to breathe without abandoning Vile Ritual’s death metal base. As the first track on Tongues of the Exanim ..read more

Album Premiere: Coffin Rites – “Human Erase”

Minnesota black/death gravediggers Coffin Rites originally formed in 2017, releasing an album as Coffinrot before changing their name. While Retribution Divine is still representative of Coffin Rites, their new album Human Erase is the first official album under the new moniker. Decibel Magazine is psyched to offer an exclusive listen before the album’s release so you can sink your fangs into one of the year’s most crazed black/death records. From the incendiary shred of opener “Buried in Blood,” Human Erase boasts frantic and frenzied energy. Even slower-paced tracks that rely more on ominous ..read more

Track Premiere: Atra Haeresis – “The Sacred Games”

A dagger plunged. A beating heart removed. A crowd roaring for the sacrifice. The action/thriller film Apocalypto explicitly recreates Aztec sacrifices in one of the movie’s most intense sequences. International death/black metal project Atra Haeresis repurpose some of that footage in the lyric video for their second single. “The Sacred Games” is one of the highlights from the band’s upcoming debut album Pretium. Satanath Records joined forces with German label Kryart Records and Death Portal Studio from the USA to release this record later this month on August 26th. “The Sacred Games” feels h ..read more

Album Premiere: Unendlich – ‘Paradox of a Broken World’

Back in 2019, I premiered the album Thanatophobia by one-man USBM project Unendlich. Two years later, I’m honored to premiere the next album in the project’s increasingly strong discography. The new album Paradox of a Broken World is the creation of Maryland-based multi-intrumentalist and sole member Mike Connors. It’a a cutting and cunning release that polishes black metal without losing the genre’s serrated edge. An ode to atrocity and human hypocrisy, Paradox of a Broken World has riffs even sharper than its contempt. Decibel Magazine is proud to host the album a few days before it’s offici ..read more

Track Premiere: Empty Throne – ‘And All Shall Know His Name’
Decibel Magazine » Blackened Death Metal
by Vince Bellino

Blackened death outfit Empty Throne are a new band, but their experience is far from in question. Containing current and former members of Possessed, Abbath, Angerot, The Kennedy Veil and Decrepit Birth, Empty Throne are a thrashy blackened death powerhouse who hit the gas pedal and don’t let up until it’s over on their debut EP, Glossolalia. The three-song EP is loaded with riffs that guitarist Michael Pardi (ex-Possessed) has been hoarding since the ’90s, when he performed with groups like Xasthur and Ritual. He shows plenty of them off on “And All Shall Know His Name,” a taste of the EP str ..read more

Album Premiere: Upon the Altar – ‘Absid ab Ordine Luminis’

Polish napalm wolves Upon the Altar are on a mission to destroy all life. At least that’s what it sounds like on their debut album, Absid ab Ordine Luminis. They play blackened death metal, tangling roots with the genre-defying extreme metal of the early ’90s. Their debut from the Putrid Cult label will take no prisoners once released on February 19th. We’re eager to inflict this suffocating awesomeness upon you, exclusively at Decibel Magazine. Upon the Altar’s riffs feel like a midnight inferno spreading to scorch the earth. There are technically chapters in this album, commonly known as son ..read more
