Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is DecibelHere’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…

The internet is practically collapsing, pretending to have an opinion last night’s Hurricane Sandy benefit concert. This wouldn’t have happened if the organizers had invited the Jersey band most predisposed to, ahem, evoking the crippling sadness of disastrous loss. It should be obvious by now that we barely try to conceal our Deci-boner for Evoken. Their fifth LP, Atra Mors, ascended to the #3 spot in our Top 40 Albums of 2012 list, and they’ll be the first to draw blood at the Decibel 100th Issue Show at Philly’s Union Transfer on Saturday, January 19. But we’re doubling down on our love for the slow and low by having Evoken corrupt the flexi for said 100th issue.

We also hold chameleonic U.K. doomsayers Paradise Lost in high regard—from their Hall of Fame on 1991 classic Gothic to June’s long overdue cover story. Evoken feel the same, which is why they cover PL’s “Rotting Misery,” which initially appeared on their 1990 debut, Lost Paradise. The track was recorded specifically for the flexi series during the Atra Mors sessions, and appears on appropriately depressive silver-on-black plastic on our 100th issue, which is now available. Gather here, beggars. No others rule supreme.

The February 2013 issue of Decibel also features Ghost, Sepultura, and Carcass, and is on sale here. But why not just get a full subscription to  to ensure that you never miss one of these awesome flexis?
