decibel flexi series

The heaviest music magazine in North America just got half an ounce heavier — the most vicious, crushing half an ounce you’ve ever experienced. It gives us tremendous pleasure to announce the launch of the Decibel Flexi Series. From now on, Decibel will treat its loyal subscribers to a new, extremely limited vinyl flexi disc bound into the magazine every month. Each disc in our series will feature 100 percent exclusive songs from the artists we’ve assiduously covered over our six-year history — we’re talking previously unreleased tracks, covers, live brutality, demos, alternate takes, re-recordings and more. Our January 2011 issue (streeting December 9) features the inaugural flexi – sponsored by our good friends at Scion A/V– and kicks things off with a blast, with unreleased material from the mighty Brutal Truth. The second will feature an unreleased Enslaved track.

With Decibel’s seal of approval, each flexi disc in this monthly series will be an instant collectible. These vinyl pieces will remain in the collections of metalheads for dozens of years (think of it as the metal equivalent of Sub Pop’s “Singles Club” series of the early 1990s). And Decibel will be the only publication in the entire world producing a series quite like this.

    This is awesome. I just got my flexi in the mail today with the new issue. One comment; why not also include a download “drop-card” with each disc? A lot of subscribers probably don’t have a turntable, let alone give a shit about vinyl at all.

    Just a thought.

    wow, are there really people out there that don’t know how to play records? i feel so old.

  • MBlitz

    you have to fold up really really really small and stuff into the USB port of your laptop or iPhone.

    I feel this story is appropriate for this board (and I felt foolish after this too): This christmas I received a turn table and my mother received a Zune HD, and in the past day had to teach each other how to use our respective new devices. I think its funny how detached each new generation gets from the technology of old and the older generations from the newer technology.

    Fools. Get a damned record player. A Sony that turns vynil into MP3’s would be a good starter turntable.

  • Stratmagikboy

    Why would use flexi discs to promote music when no one has a turntable anymore? The marketing genius who thought this one up is surely out of a job. And don’t call him Shirley.

    • DieFag

      Fuck off, this is the best idea ever, anyone who is really into music has a decent record player set up.

  • Ccoello

    No one has a turntable anymore?… See Ebay and a lot of music stores full of vinyl records of Lady Gaga, Madonna etc,. We live a Vinyl revival right now

    Any ideas on how to store flexi discs? I can’t seem to find cases for them…
