Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Doomriders Star in the New Converse x Decibel!
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…
As our editor-in-chief can tell you, the apex of earthly extremity is… childbirth. I’ll never forgive Judd Apatow for the part at the end of Knocked Up where he Shows That Shit, and that was only a special effect. But for real, the heavy part isn’t the passage of that slimy little fucker through your significant other’s now-obliterated lady parts—it’s actually raising said slimy little fucker into, ideally, anything but a school shooter. Or soccer fan.
That takes work, and it’s what new dad Nate Newton of Doomriders admits to struggling with in the latest Converse x Decibel. One can assume that—being a grown man and all-around self-aware good dude—Newton will figure out the daddy business, tour successfully off Doomriders’ new album (due sometime this year, hopefully, on Deathwish) and concentrate on exposing the world to his assortment of idiotic tattoos. Indeed, the four-piece outfit hangs at Congress St. Tattoos in Portsmouth, NH (where bassist Jebb Riley is an artist), and talks about growing into their Doomriders identities. Just as Newton had to grow into his Frankenstein hot dog tattoo. You’ll see.
The August 2013 issue of Decibel features Amon Amarth, Pig Destroyer, and an awesome Dark Tranquillity flexi disc. You can purchase it here. But why not just get a full subscription to ensure that you never miss an issue?
