FEAR, EMPTINESS, DECIBEL: KRALLICE COVER RORSCHACH’S “TRADITIONAL”!!!

80

Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…

Krallice may be polarizing in the metal community at large, but both Decibel (9 for Krallice, 9 for Dimensional Bleedthrough, 8 for Diotima) and MetalSucks (Colin Marston placing #15 on The Top 25 Modern Metal Guitarists list) fall squarely on the positive side of that spectrum. Hence, we’re keeping the upward spiral spinning with this month’s Flexi disc, as the NY-based black-proggers deliver their distinctive take on Rorschach’s “Traditional” (order here). The timing’s particularly gnarly because—surprise, surprise—Rorschach’s 1993 crossover sensation Protestant is September’s Decibel Hall of Fame honoree. This gem’s in vibrant gold and white—not clear, as it may appear in the image—and unlike the other Rorschach in popular culture, it hasn’t been sullied by the dipshittery of Zack Snyder. Give it a spin.
