Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Subscribe to Decibel, Get a Free New Nader Sadek EP!
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…
We try to overstuff Decibel with exclusive content every month—the Flexi Series and the Hall of Fame for starters—but the December issue has a very special early stocking stuffer for subscribers: the brand new four-song Nader Sadek EP, The Malefic: Chapter III. If you’ve been sleeping on this dude, his discography isn’t that deep yet, so there’s plenty of time to jump on the bandwagon (albeit not a lot of room). We interviewed him on the Deciblog yesterday about the “terrestrial, celestial, autobiographical” lyrical conceit, his incredible battery of contributors (Death’s Bobby Koelble, Cryptopsy’s Flo Mounier, Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser, Aura Noir’s Rune Eriksen—although that’s a fraction of the talent he reigned in for 2011 debut In the Flesh), and why he chose to partner up with Decibel.
MetalSucks seems to feel the same way about this exciting new voice in extremity, going one-on-one with a man who “does not quite consider himself a musician; rather, an artist exploring various mediums to best portray a concept or an idea that’s been ruminating in that fascinating brain of his.” and giving props to his astonishing In the Flesh live one-off, Living Flesh. Read up on him now, or over the weekend at latest; you’ll have to subscribe to dB by 9 a.m. EST Tuesday to ensure receipt of this killer, unique insert. As a wise man once said, if you’re not first, you’re last.
