I wouldn’t say I was anticipating their upcoming album The Wild Hunt, but after hearing the new track the band has released, I may have just changed my mind.     Continue reading

Fuck Off, We Murder: WATAIN Covering GG ALLIN Is One Of The Best Things Ever

As a fan of punk music, I have a lot of respect for GG Allin. The guys was off his rocker, but he was an amazing musician and he wrote a lot of amazing tunes. You don’t see many covers of Allin tunes these days, but when they come up they are usually pretty rad. Watain are proof of this now. The band has unleashed a killer cover of “Fuck Off, We Murder” for the latest Decibel Flexi Disc. You can stream the track here or here and I highly suggest doing so. It rules.       Continue reading

Review: The Decibel Magazine Tour 4/29/2012

This past Febuary, like so many others around the time ticket sales were announced, I purchased a ticket to The Decibel Magazine Tour.

If there was ever a tour to boast high quality acts, this was it. Would this be worth it and then some?
