Seventeen years after our launch, Decibel is honored to bring you our 200th monthly issue. To celebrate in style, longtime friends and death metal superstars At the Gates helm this monumental issue in Decibel’s storied history. The Swedes provide their first-ever interview about their upcoming album, The Nightmare of Being, diving deep into its philosophical nature and the optimism they share for a post-pandemic world.
This party is far from over as the Decibel Hall of Fame inducts Lamb of God’s Ashes of the Wake into its hallowed ranks. This entry includes new interviews from all five members who played on this landmark of American metal, which we actually covered back in issue No. 1 of your favorite metal bathroom reader. Elsewhere, issue No. 2 cover stars Converge provide the first physical release of their song “I Won’t Let You Go”—featuring gold foil printing and all new, exclusive art from frontman Jacob Bannon—via our decade-running Decibel Flexi Series
This celebration of all things extremely extreme is available now and all thanks to you, our devoted readership. Pick up a copy and share in the memory of this collective journey down the left-hand path. Hail metal! Hail print! Hail Decibel!
