In celebration of Decibel Books’ revised and expanded edition of Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore, we’ve lured eight killer death/grind bands to the one-day extreme music event of 2016: Choosing Death Fest!
Dying Fetus, Nails, Misery Index, Deceased, Noisem, Horrendous, Magrudergrind and Taphos Nomos will converge on Philadelphia, PA’s Union Transfer on Saturday, April 16. Most — if not all — of the bands will be performing at least one old-school death metal cover. Not only that, but a variety of special guests and events tied to the fest (co-presented by Decibel Magazine and Grimposium) will be announced in 2016 as well.
It’s all in honor of the new, hardcover, hand-numbered Choosing Death (limited to 3,000 copies worldwide) featuring 100 new pages, 50 new interviews, three new chapters and cover art from legendary artist Dan Seagrave.
