Decibel Magazine

Decibel Magazine The hottest magazines, flexi discs, books, festivals and tours in metal. What is Decibel? An important question. Decibel is an extremely extreme music and entertainment magazine based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Founded in 2004 by a well-intentioned, somewhat studious (let’s not forget record-collecting) dude, Decibel’s credo was to examine and expose the best extreme music had to offer. We were the new kid on the block, but we knew our noise was louder and nastier than anything out there. To quote ourselves, Decibel was “the new noise.” Since our debut issue (the Dillinger Escape Plan, October 2004), Dec

The highly-anticipated debut record from Texas death revelers Malignant Altar is FINALLY available for pre-order on wax, and Decibel is excited to offer our own hyper-limited variant on bone-rattling white vinyl, limited to just 100 copies available!

Realms of Exquisite Morbidity sees the Houston harbingers churning out a six-pack of low-tuned putrefaction, anchored-in-muck by the title track, a “suitably spectral interluding instrumental.” The album was once again recorded and mixed by drummer Dobber Beverly (Oceans of Slumber), with the auspicious Arthur Rizk on mastering duties.

Limited to a scarce 198 total copies on white vinyl, with only a mere 100 being made available in the US via the Decibel store, this recherché recording comes packaged with printed inner sleeve, digital download card, and acerbic cover art from Lucas Korte (Shoggoth Kinetics).

Link to purchase: tinyurl.com/MAdecibel

With copies of their demo tapes already fetching preposterous prices, we highly advise immediate ownership of this emblem of brutality, lest you descend into a waking nightmare of regret and loathing. Secure yours right now!

NOTE: These are pre-order items due to ship February 2022. All details, including release date, are subject to change. Album originally released 12/10/21 via Dark Descent Records.
