DARKEST HOUR Parts With Drummer

Washington D.C. based metallers DARKEST HOUR have posted the following lineup news:

"Yes it is true, Darkest Hour has parted ways with drummer Ryan Parrish. We wish him well (you will see him rocking in many projects no doubt please check them out, they will all rip!).

For now his duties have been filled by drummer Timothy Java (DEAD TO FALL). Tim did an amazing job on our recent European tour with MACHINE HEAD.

Sweden's NAGLFAR has now revealed some additional news on the current status of the band and their upcoming studio album, Téras:

Kristoffer W. Olivius - Vocals
Marcus E. Norman - Guitars

DROID singer James Eason has announced that he has left the band and is currently exploring other projects in the music world. His statement on his departure can be read below.

I have spent the last 10+ years in the band DROID so this is no easy decision for me. To make it simple the past 10 years in DROID have had their great and memorable moments and their not so memorable moments.

I have chosen to move on in positive direction... This being said, my # 1 Priority has and always will be to make music and give 100% commitment of myself to my music. Music is my #1 priority and always has been...I stand strong in my commitment. My #1 regret is that the DROID fans have had to wait soooooooooooooo long for a 2nd record, and then receive this news. Where ever I end up I promise to make up for their super long wait. You can count on that, I will always stay true to my word&

I am looking for musicians who are driven, focused and hungry - these are the kinds of musicians I am looking for to play with as of now&

Any interested musicians or bands please feel free to contact me; I can be reached at

Hosting Issues

As you may have noticed, we've experienced serious problems with our former host in the past few months. Despite our numerous complaints about the site's performance, they wouldn't do diddly squat and blamed us for having too much traffic and content for their puny "servers", so it became apparent that we had to move on.

Unfortunately, the douchebags made it as hard as possible for us to switch smoothly, and we are still recovering. Thankfully, we have a full backup, and everything should be back to normal shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Precious Metal

Decibel Presents the Stories Behind 25 Extreme Metal Masterpieces
Edited by Albert Mudrian

July 28, 2009 (Da Capo Press) - Edited by Albert MudrianEditor-in-Chief of Decibel magazinePrecious Metal takes you inside the recording studios where the most intense heavy metal albums of all time were created, providing background on the savage guitar sounds and bloodcurdling screams that have defined a musical genre.

To compile this book, Mudrian pored through Decibelrenowned for its metal Hall of Fame interview seriesand expanded its interviews to bring you face-to-face with each and every band member who contributed to twenty-five immortal albums. Revealing the operatic scope of each bands vision and their uphill battles to lay down tracks that would endure, the pieces offer a fly-on-the-wall look at three decades of rocking out. Highlights include:

  • Ozzy Osbournes devastating departure from Black Sabbathand their reinvention with Heaven and Hell, which captured a new generation of metal fans.
  • The quick rise and fall of Diamond Head, whose proto-thrash classic Lightning to the Nations (a one-week recording demo) catapulted them into the pantheon.
  • Sleeps 52-minute one-track release, Jerusalem, and the 1.316-second song You Suffer that earned Napalm Death a world record.
  • A double arrest for Emperorthe guitarist for arson, the drummer for murderthat threatened the completion of In the Nightside Eclipse.
  • The grotesque, taboo-shattering lyrics of Cannibal Corpseand the shocking Tomb of the Mutilated cover art that decimated the limits of zombie pornography.

Delving deep into the bands diverse influencesranging from the usual suspects like Led Zeppelin to Wagnerian opera (Kyuss) and reggae (Napalm Death)Precious Metal celebrates the legacy of their landmark albums and amplifies the risks taken along the way.

To celebrate the books release, on Friday, July 31st at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, Decibel is holding a special book release show. Grindcore legends Repulsion will kick off our with a once-in-a-lifetime performance of their Hall of Fame-inducted classic Horrified in its entirety! Pig Destroyer and Brutal Truth will be there to tear the venue a new one, too. A few tickets are still available and can be purchased here.

Albert Mudrian is the Editor-in-Chief of Decibel magazine and the author of the cult classic Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
