Satan, Night Demon, Haunt and Sonja Announced for Decibel Metal & Beer: Philly Pre-Fest
Metal and beer, beer and metal. Two of the finer things in life go together like riffs and blast beats, which is why Decibel Mag combines them in a festival twice a year. This year’s lineup is already pretty stacked—The Black Dahlia Murder’s East Coast return, Suicidal Tendencies playing their debut in full, Gorguts playing Obscura and Considered Dead material and so on—but the deal has been made even sweeter with a pre-fest on April 13 that features heavy metal legends Satan.
The NWOBHM legends will be supported by Cali mainstays Night Demon, prolific torchbearers Haunt and 2022 standouts Sonja. Genre-wise, it’s a little bit of a different lineup than the main festival, guaranteeing that you get a little bit of every metal subgenre.
