DECIBEL GETS EVEN AWESOMER, INTRODUCES MONTHLY EXCLUSIVE FLEXI DISCS STARTING IN 2011Is it still shilling if you genuinely believe in the product? Whatever. I don’t care. This is incredibly cool, and you’ll recognize it as being incredibly cool, or otherwise you’re probably a Vampires Everywhere fan.

So. If you don’t already have a subscription to Decibel, now would be a good time to get off your lazy ass and get one. Starting with the January 2011 issue, the only metal magazine worth a damn anymore is going to include a flexi disc — that’s a super-thin vinyl record to you, numb nuts — each and every month. No joke: Decibel is going to include a free vinyl every fucking month. Holy shit, that’s awesome.

Even awesomer: according to the press release announcing the new feature, the discs will contain “100 percent exclusive songs,” including “previously unreleased tracks, covers, live brutality, demos, alternate takes, re-recordings and more.” In other words, you won’t be able to get this music any place else.

And because it’s Decibel, they’re not dicking around… the inaugural flexi disc comes from Brutal Truth. BRUTAL FUCKING TRUTH. Exclusive music. On vinyl. The mind boggles.

A limited number of discs will be included with issues of Decibel sold at indie record stores and their webstore, but the only way to ensure that you get these flexi discs is to subscribe. A six month subscription is about fifteen bucks, a one year subscription is about thirty bucks, and a two year subscription is about forty-five bucks. For a monthly flexi disc of exclusive, awesome music from killer bands like Brutal Truth AND the new issue of Decibel, that deal is pretty much unbeatable. So stop reading this and go subscribe now.
