The atmosphere flowing through the dreary hearts of this Brooklyn trio bleeds out onto their instruments. This sets Decorum apart. They are not just some trust fund art school “punks” waxing philosophical over Unknown Pleasures. While Brooklyn might be notorious for some of their bandwagons, you’ll be lured into the hypnotic

Do you ever feel like you want to…? That is the reigning sentiment of our age, the endless wanting and the melancholy void it opens in our souls. Some of us are eaten alive by it, others find a way to accept it, even ignore it, but we are ingrained with

There comes a time in every young man, woman, nonbinary, or other person’s life when they have something put in front of them that is so jagged, bare, raw, textured and destructive that it achieves all levels of perfection and surpasses it without batting an eyelash. Now take extreme experimental

If the Trumps and Bushes of this world want to brand me a traitor to their militaristic corporate worldview, I’ll wear it with pride! And if a sick post-punk band from my country calls themselves Traitrs and puts out an EP as radical as Rites & Ritual is, I will blast their

How many bands who claim to be “experimental” actually…you know…experiment – as opposed to those who just use a couple dissonant chords and a few effects pedals? Unfortunately, not many.
