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

We're just a few weeks away from the release of #Chaosmos, the brand new LP from Tech-death masters Origin. To get you good and jazzed the band has just dropped the title track as their second single, and spoiler alert: it's every bit as brutal as you'd hoped it would be.

Watch the Chaosmos video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdHV0E7qyJ0

You'll have to wait til June 3rd for the rest of the record, but for now we strongly advise taking 3 minutes out of your day to bear witness to this violent spectacle and you'll quickly understand why John Longstreth is heralded as one of the most proficient drummers in the modern Death Metal musical scene!

Decibel has once again displayed amazing prescience in obtaining our own exclusive edition of this album, on swirly Orange-in-Orange vinyl which if you ask us perfectly complements the killer cover art - snag a copy in our webstore:

Less than 100 copies remain!

According to a post on the band's Instagram profile, Trevor Strnad, vocalist of the Black Dahlia Murder, has passed away at the age of 41.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.

Decibel sends our love to Trevor's family, friends and his current and former bandmates in the Black Dahlia Murder. We are dumbfounded by this loss. Rest in Power, Trevor.

U.S. black metal kingpins Wolves In The Throne Room will debut the *first-ever full-album performance* of their 2007 landmark album #TwoHunters at Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly on Friday June 10, 2022!!

In addition to the full album performance, the band will be unveiling not one but two special brew collaborations for the event - a melomel collab with The Brimming Horn Meadery and a fruited hazy IPA collab with Wake Brewing - because an album as crucial as Two Hunters deserved two collaborations.

Click here to secure your tickets and try them both: https://concerts.livenation.com/event/02005C34BDF337DC

➡️ Two Hunters also just received a long-awaited 2xLP repress via Southern Lord Recordings and Decibel was lucky enough to get our own edition on moss green vinyl limited to just 300 copies. We'd like to tell you we will still have copies available at Metal & Beer Fest, but we've already blown through 2/3rds of them so that may be wishful thinking.

Philadelphia heavy hitters SOUL GLO & Love City Brewing Company have come together to create #Driponomics - a hazy double IPA brewed with mango + pineapple, available exclusively at Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly!

Named after the 2nd single from Soul Glo's debut Epitaph Records release #DiasporaProblems, this collaboration is as Philly as it gets - it was brewed *just a few blocks * from the venue!

“Driponomics is for everyone doing what they have to do to get by and to get fly,” says the band. “Oftentimes lower-income and working class people are criticized for how they survive out here, especially in times of crisis. People are getting more desperate but simultaneously more creative with their income options, and this song is a salute to that. Love to Mother Maryrose whose verse on this song is one of the best moments on our album.”

Try it exclusively at Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly 2022!
