Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Announcing Decibel’s 100th Issue Show: The Movie!!!
Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…
January 19: a momentous day for America. In 1982, it gave its citizenry Jodie Sweetin, Full House’s preeminent meth fiend. In 2013, a slight upgrade: Decibel Magazine’s 100th Issue Show at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, starring Converge, Pig Destroyer, Repulsion, Municipal Waste, Tombs, Evoken and a who’s-who of extreme music luminaries. We teamed up with director David Hall (the man behind multiple Maryland Deathfest films) to commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event, and are just about ready to unveil it in the form of our first-ever concert DVD. Getcha popcorn ready. (And meth.)
Decibel’s 100th Issue Show: The Movie will be available exclusively at store.decibelmagazine.com on November 1. It will be a highly limited affair: just 1,000 copies. If you’re currently keeping it weird in or around Austin, TX, you’ll get a chance to preview the film in its entirety, as it’s making its world premiere at Phil Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival, running October 24 – 27. Otherwise, be sure to snap up the hard copy after Halloween—the DVD will include hours of ridiculously awesome bonus footage—perhaps most entertainingly, a ribald commentary track from Tony Foresta of Municipal Waste and Scott Hull, Blake Harrison and J.R. Hayes of Pig Destroyer.
So, without further ado, it gives us great pleasure to bring you the initial teaser trailer, with plenty of ripping grindcore, doom, thrash and, yes, Kevin Stewart-Panko ’tude.
Like we said up top, Decibel doesn’t just make killer DVDs — they also make a killer magazine! And the October 2013 issue, featuring Carcass, Gwar, and Gorguts, is on sale now — purchase it here. Actually… why not just get a full subscription to ensure that you never miss an issue?
