SPOILING OUR READERS: Iron Reagan’s “Spoiled Identity” EP

January 30, 2015

Last June, we gave out a free Iron Reagan flexi disc to our subscribers, because we’re awesome like that. Still, that was free, and booze and drumsticks aren’t, so A389 have figured out a reason to charge you for it! It’s totally worth your hard-earned cash, though. Not only do you get two bonus tracks…

Get Free Pallbearer Vinyl by Subscribing to Decibel

January 29, 2015

They’re too young for Hall of Fame consideration, but that’s probably the only honor Decibel hasn’t already bestowed upon Pallbearer. Both of their full-lengths have appeared in the top five of our year-end Top 40 list (Foundations of Burden being our favorite extreme album of 2014); they’ve graced the cover; they scored two slots in…

Get a Free Orange Goblin Flexi by Subscribing to Decibel

January 2, 2015

Over the last 20 years, Orange Goblin have established themselves as a pillar of the international stoner/doom order. Last year’s epic full-length, Back From the Abyss, was the latest permutation in the always-evolving U.K. quartet’s unimpeachable discography, and if you (understandably) want more, we’ve got it, via the Flexi Series. Ben Ward and crew bash…

Get TWO free FLEXIS in the next DECIBEL!

January 31, 2014

Due to an equipment failure at our flexi disc printer, we were unable to include a flexi in the March issue of Decibel. Since we never leave our loyal subscribers in the lurch, you’ll be chuffed to find not one, but two flexis in the April issue! Fire up those turntables, as Decibel Magazine Tour…

Carcass are back, and like John McClane, they’ve returned with a vengeance.

Decibel’s Jeff Hanneman Tribute Issue Now Available

May 17, 2013

It’s impossible to be hyperbolic about the legacy of Jeff Hanneman. Our own Justin Norton comes right out and says it in this month’s cover story: “Every band ever featured in this magazine owes [Slayer] something.” Hanneman and Slayer have coursed through Decibel‘s lifesblood from the onset, from two Hall of Fames to two exhaustive…

May 1, 2013

If you didn’t make it out to Philly for our much-ballyhooed (BALLYHOOED, I TELL YOU) 100th Issue Show, you didn’t get a free, limited-edition flexi from that evening’s penultimate performers, the mighty Pig Destroyer.

Exclusive New EXHUMED Flexi Disc Now Available!

March 28, 2013

It took them eight years to follow up 2003’s pulverizing Anatomy Is Destiny, but San Jose death metal degenerates Exhumed proved that gore metal is eternal on the brilliantly-titled All Guts, No Glory, which we recognized as the 13th best extreme album of 2011. The depravity rages on, as the quartet delivers their latest slice…

Limited Edition LOCK UP Flexi Disc Available

February 22, 2013

We last heard from grindcore supergroup Lock Up in the summer of 2011, when they finally delivered long-awaited third album Necropolis Transparent. Since it might take Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Nick Barker (ex-Cradle of Filth), Tomas Lindberg (At the Gates) and Anton Reisenegger (Pentagram) another nine years for a proper follow-up, we figured it’d be…
