Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Watch the New Commercial for The Decibel Magazine Tour!
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…
Roughly six years ago, for reasons that become less and less explicable as the years go on, we made a Decibel Magazine commercial and paid to have it aired twice during an episode of the just-rebooted Headbangers Ball (when Jasta hosted). Even more entertaining than those two monotony-shattering appearances was watching our $150-budgeted opus go up against the likes of those godawful, glossy metalcore-era Victory Records ads. Insinuating ourselves in the conversation was a triumph of taste and persistence, if not production value.
Six years later, we have a much, much nicer promo for the third year of our national tour, and I really wish Headbangers Ball existed (okay, no I don’t) so we had an excuse to put it up against, I don’t know, an Attila or Motionless in White spot. You can press play for yourself, but it should be no surprise that the teaser compiles all the best video and live footage from our headliners (Carcass, the Black Dahlia Murder, Gorguts and Noisem), and ideally gets you all bonered up all over again, just in case (unlikely) you forgot. Mind you, we still have more than a month to go before even the first date in Orlando, but unlike Mets spring training, there’s no way this expenditure of disposable income will disappoint.
