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

It's beer o'clock on Friday, and that means 2 things: first, we're about to pop the top on a tasty adult beverage and second: as of tomorrow we're just 2 weeks away from Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly, featuring an absolutely killer lineup of brews presented by Broken Goblet Brewing!

What better way to kickoff the countdown to the festivities than by announcing the details of this years Official Festival Beer, and by giving you a sneak peak at some of the brew-tal bevvies that BG has lined up for us?!

ASHES IN THE AIR is a 10% English-style Barleywine that packs a complex flavor punch of malty toffee and dark fruits with a warming booziness. The stunning label art, that continuously leaves us all saying "that cannot be a painting", is indeed a painting from the uber-talented Rachael Bridge aptly titled "Ashes in the Air."

This beer will release first at the Festival (and will also be available at the Barcade After Parties if you missed out on tickets). It will also go on tap with very limited can release at BGob on September 29th!

Also pictured are 2 more choice festival offerings from the 'Gobs:

CLAWING AT THE CASKET LID - A Dry Irish Stout that's "as traditional as it gets" and...

MAKESHIFT ATOMSMASHER - A very traditional Oktoberfest style with notes of bread crusts, toast and honey brewed in collaboration with Deadguy!

If you missed out on the "Metal & Beer" sampling tickets, don't worry: a limited amount of the Atomsmasher will be available at Underground Arts for the Friday night premiere of the #Deadguy documentary screening. Tickets are still available - We'll see you there!

And for those of you holding sampling tickets for the main festivities, expect to be filling your tasting cup with these exclusive pours and over 50+ more in just two weeks time at The Fillmore Philadelphia!!! Make sure you come THIRSTY!
