Back in 2007, as we were putting together Pig Destroyer’s first Decibel cover story, guitarist Scott Hull told us how cool he thought it would be to include a PxDx flexi disc in the issue. Great idea, only one problem: no one on earth was producing flexi discs in 2007. It would be another three years until those presses started rolling again and the Decibel Flexi Series came to life. Lineup turmoil, conflicting schedules and various other hurdles prevented us from consummating a PxDx recording. A decade passed since the idea was conceived, and we were about 15 months away from 100th release in the series. A late November 2018 deadline was set for a master, and, miraculously, DB100 is a reality in the form of “The Cavalry.”
“The music for ‘The Cavalry’ was written as an explicit tribute to [late Terrorizer/Napalm Death guitarist] Jesse Pintado during the month of August 2018,” explains Hull, “specifically after listening to Harmony Corruption and World Downfall on repeat. We are proud to give this track to our hermanos over at Decibel and finally contribute to the Flexi Series as the 100th entry.”
Though still two months away from release (we haven’t even told you what DB099 is yet), it’s with great pride that we present to you the 100th entry in the Decibel Flexi Series, complete with exclusive new picture disc art, courtesy of Decibel art director Mike Wohlberg. The best place to score this landmark track is by signing up for a deluxe Decibel subscription by noon on February 4, 2019. Thank you for allowing us to bring you 100 flexis since 2010—here’s to well over 100 more!
