This is probably an occupational hazard given my day job involves the asking of questions, collecting of facts, disseminating of information and the other folderol that generally falls under the rubric of “professional journalism,” but I feel compelled to call Decibel on a glaring journalistic lapse in their August issue. Now Decibel is easily the best metal magazine on the newsstands by a country mile and a couple furlongs on Sundays for good measure. That’s why I was absolutely floored to see the sort of parasitical asshole they give credence in an otherwise spot on interview with G&P faves Wormrot.
See for yourself:Who in their right fucking mind would for one minute give that shameless, typo-ridden hack’s masturbatory internet dribblings the most fleeting of glances, let along the dignity of being mentioned in such an otherwise laudable publication? Now, far be it from me to advocate any form of censorship, but taste and respectability should dictate some reasonable limits. I will, of course, be composing a letter to one Mr. Mudrian posthaste expressing my absolute disgust at his momentary lapse in judgment.
Honestly, I can only give Cosmo Lee at Invisible Oranges sincere appreciation for the opportunity to spread the holy word of grindcore, in general, and Wormrot, in particular. And thanks to Atanamar for the heads up on the Decibel article. This ranks right up there with being mentioned in the thank you list of a Parlamentarisk Sodomi album as a beyond-my-wildest-dreams triumph for the blog.
