Rise Records does not have a great reputation as a record label. Signing bands such as Attack Attack, Scarlett O'Hara, Abandon All Ships, and many others can do that to a label. Luckily, Rise does have a few bands that actually have talent, such as Tides of Man, PMToday, and until recently, Oceana. Decoder seems to be another band entering that highest tier of Rise Records bands. Decoder takes members of old VersaEmerge, Of Machines, and old Oceana to create a combination of those three bands. Decoder is a technical version of post hardcore similar to the talented Rise bands listed above. Two songs from Decoder's self titled album are on their Bandcamp page, where you can also pre-order the record. Hopefully the record will showcase the band's talent rather than going to the generic side of the spectrum. The album will be released on January 17th.


  1. New Attack Attack isn't that good personally, but how can you say these bands have no talent when rise records sponsors them. If they had no talent wouldn't they not be sponsored? And the new attack attack screamer has no talent though not going to lie.

  2. It's called image. How the heck does Ke$ha sell so many records then, if you need talent to sell albums.
