what kind of magazine is decibel? mainstream glossy or what? i dont know anything about metal mags/zines.


Its probably the most mainstream music rag in the States after "Rolling Stone". Terrible magazine....basically an extention of Mtv and Hot Topic's corporate printing presses.

Disagree. Decibel is a bigger, glossy metal mag, but is FAAAAAR less shitty than Revolver, which rides trends like Tiger mounts porno hoes. And there are literally dozens of music mags bigger than Decibel, yet smaller than RS; of which is a fucking abomination. I cannot believe what is deemed good music these days.

Decibel is not terrible, they cover shitty bands, but the labels of those shitty bands pay for ads, which prints magazines. They also cover plenty of underground shit, I.E. Teitanblood, but everyone here gets all butt-hurt because it is not cut/paste and written in broken english.

The actual layout/design of Decibel is award winning and for the most part looks excellent. But that is just the designer in me speaking.

Overall, it's pretty damn shitty, although like you said they often cover underground bands. I've never had the balls to look through a revolver ! Still, the Teitanblood interview is a pretty good example of the pretentious writing style of their contributers and the general shallowness of the mag.

Articles in "big" magazines are often for a large mass of unaware idiots, and they are as written as such. Like comparing Teitanblood to prime rib.

That particular article is one of their smaller, half page write-ups in the front of the mag. They are not going to dedicate a full spread to such an unknown (to Decibel's demographic) band.

Funny how people complain about the piece, yet also complain on how it is too short, etc...

KVLT = CONTRADICTION

The writing comes off as pretentious, yes, but it is also written by someone who, as a writer, knows what they are doing. Do we really need more of the same "hail kvlt, your black hymns are truly crypt, what designs these inholy scriptures of hate?" ???

It is not like just because they do one small piece in a bigger mag that all the Indonesian xeroxofago rags are going to quit re hashing the same questions for everyone to kvlt out on.

@Blodhem - I DO NOT recommend checking out Revolver. I used to work across from a bookstore, and in the copious amounts of downtime I had I would go pick up a mag every so often, and Revolver was the only thing they carried. They cover everything from Linkin Park to even some moderately underground schwag, but whatever is popular = what they cover. They are really starting to get back to more of the alt-hard-rock-whatever shit these days. I flipped through one a couple of weeks ago.

i love decibel's hall of fame section. they do a 6-7 page article with photos every month on a "classic' metal album and interview all members that played on that album. not all of their HOF choices are very good, but they did some awesome ones on onward to golgotha, left hand path, altars of madness, transilvanian hunger, reign in blood, mental funeral, etc. awesome reading for nerds like me who like to know every detail that went into recording an album.

I don't see why so many people outright hate on Decibel.

It is literally the ONLY Metal magazine left in America.
I don't count the dreadful Revolver...oof!


Do they cover bands that I hate? Yes.
Do they cover tons of bands mentioned on this board? Yes.

I take the good with the bad each month.

THIS

And I second everything Mike said.

But - if you really want to get your hate on, read the Call and Response (they give a random band a bunch of MP3s and do not tell them who it is, and they give their thoughts on the music) with Through The Eyes of Dead and they refer to Teitanblood (remember, they are not told which band it is) as "some terrible gore-grind shit" or something along those lines. Stupid Deathcore retards.

The fag who wrote that was probably eating steak stir fry, drinking bottled oolong tea and crunching Pocky while watching Death Note... figures he'd start out with a bad metaphor relating to food.

You have to eat dirt & worms or McDonalds dollar menu like a real warrior to write appealing articles...
