FEAR, EMPTINESS, DECIBEL: GUESS THE NEXT DECIBEL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE, WIN A FREE SUBSCRIPTION!
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. Smart, funny, insightful, and honest, Decibel is the reason our bookshelf needs a permanent “magazine” section; the reason people on the subway look at us funny; the reason we’re embarrassed to admit we like Sevendust but don’t get Sunn O))). Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli.
Good day, fellow pornogrind enthusiasts. Last week I was
ordered overjoyed to solicit your opinions about inducting Refused’s skinny-tie party program into our vaunted, otherwise face-stomping Hall of Fame. This week, I’m struggling with solid bowel movements. It’s probably the cheddar cheese Pringles I deep-throated last night.
No no, but seriously, this week we’re going to play a game. That game is called “Guess the New Decibel Hall of Fame.” If you don’t participate, and find yourself strapped to a carousel with a shotgun pointed at you, please direct the authorities to my ex-girlfriend’s apartment.
Anyway, the MP3 below contains a minute-long snippet of an interview with a member of our next HOF honoree. I’ll even throw you a bone(r): the man speaking is not American. So, we can rule out Three Dollar Bill Y’All for one more month, at least. First person to get both artist and title correct in the comments below wins a free six-month subscription to Decibel. We won’t even wipe ourselves with them prior to mail-out, pinkie swear! Now get listening.
Buy yourself a copy of the September 2010 issue of Decibel here, or just go ahead and buy yourself a full subscription here. It comes down to about two bucks an issue for a one-year subscription, which is roughly thirty-six dollars more a year you could be spending on the lawyer defending you for violating your restraining order.
