Last April we announced our partnership with f.y.e. for the Decibel Meter, a monthly collection featured both online and in store to make sure you don’t miss any of the essential titles from each month. And while we know you’re preparing to spend all that money in the “savings” account on five-dollar flatscreens and pennies-on-the-dollar hoodies, the November 2017 Decibel Meter, corresponding to the issue with Cannibal Corpse on the cover, is a shopping guide to keep the audio levels clearly in the red before Black (Friday).
This issue’s collection includes a smorgasbord of extreme metal; and with Thanksgiving on the horizon, King Parrot‘s thrashing, grinding Ugly Produce seems a great place to get the feast started. Similarly digestible is the self-titled debut EP from Poison Blood, featuring Neill Jameson from Krieg and Jenks Miller of Horseback, and made in the style of old Beherit filth. On the side of dooming emanations Spirit Adrift‘s phenomenal sophomore Curse of Conception and Primitive Man‘s hideous amalgam of sludge/noise Caustic isn’t to be missed. In the deathly dishes, Spectral Voice‘s Eroded Corridors of Unbeing is sure to be in the top spots on many lists this year, and The Black Dahlia Murder‘s Nightbringers showcases the band at their best. And for those less interested in the death/black/doom/thrash, the latest albums from Enlaved, Mogwai, Grave Pleasures, August Burns Red, and the debut from Deadnought are sure to fill out the dinner table.
So to make sure your Thanksgiving and/or Black Friday stay(s) thoroughly with the volume meter in the read, check out this list at f.y.e.’s website, or head straight to the nearest f.y.e location today.
