5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much perfect November 1, 2008
By Andrew

This is my favorite magazine right now. This is the magazine that I always get excited about when it comes in the mail. Decibel is obviously written by people who are big music fans in general, but love extreme metal music. These are the people who can see a lot of music journalists for the wankers they are and that bands like Slayer, Carcass, Jesu, and Converge deserve as much, if not more respect than popular bands like Talking Heads, Nirvana, and Radiohead.

One of the best things about this magazine is how it covers all genres and eras. They'll do a profile of some obscure grindcore or doom metal band or a band that is just doing something entirely new. And they do cover stories on popular older bands like Iron Maiden, but then they'll do a cover story on bands that might not be that popular, but are still some of the best out there, like Pig Destroyer and Pelican. So they try to have something for everyone here. There's some good articles for people who aren't huge metalheads and plenty of stuff here for people that want to dig a little deeper. But what they don't do, at least not for a while now, is do cover stories on popular bands that just kinda suck. Their cover story on Trivium has become a joke among the magazine's readers and writers and doesn't look to be something that will be repeated.

Reviews are usually well written. They're not afraid to give out a couple of 9's to the albums that deserve them each month. These, as well as pretty much everything else in the magazine, are usually written with a lot of humor, but you can still tell these are people who genuinely love this music. Also they review a lot of different stuff. You might see Cannibal Corpse, Jesu, Queens of the Stone Age, and even really inventive heavy hip hop like Dalek in the same issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new magazine! June 7, 2005

I've been looking for a good music magazine for a long time and i've finally found it! Decibel features awesome bands on a monthly basis. Just been warned you won't find any Velvet revolver or slipknot in its contents, and that's a good thing! Decibel writes about bands worth finding more about and who aren't just the flavour of the week. It has good articles and it's also very well put together and visually pleasing. I eagerly await getting the new issues every month. If you're a music lover you need to buy a copy of decibel, because you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal and Fantastic December 1, 2012
By Jose

Love the reviews and different suggestions for bands they have in the magazine. I like reading about the album reviews because it helps me get a view about new bands and bands I've never heard of before. Flexidiscs are cool if you have a player for them, nice add-on that makes this magazine unique. Basically if you like metal and lots of it, your $30 a year is safe with these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You May 21, 2005

Finally a good metal No no no scratch that a BRILLIANT metal magazine from the US.

Many have tried and have made good attempts but not been consistant.

Decibel has a great overall look glossy pages good pictures (but thankfully not just another picture mag)and good sensible reviews unlike some other mags that just say an album is no good they tell you why it is good or no good.

It features all kinds of metal but seems to keep each issue with something for eveyone and is priced very reasonably.

Thank You Everyone at decibel

and KUDOS for the free shirt with subsription

5.0 out of 5 stars A Metal Magazine done right. April 23, 2009
By C. M.
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Decibel has made me believe in magazine again. I'm like a 3 year old that just got home from the toy store when my new issue of Decibel comes. I can't wait to read it and see what obscure bands I've never heard about will be in there, and also interested in the cover stories on some of the best in Metal. Along with in-depth interviews, Decibel Hall of Fame, reviews that are of great quality, and what seems to be an unstoppable writing output, I will subscribe to this magazine as long as its around.

Ever since we got the first issue of decibel at my work, i've found it to be an informative and entertaining mag that somehow manages to cover a lot of my favorite bands and musical preferences. While I agree with many of their reviews, sometimes i feel as if i've been mislead when i hear what the album actually sounds like (which was the case with the red chord) but it beats revolver, and i see it as the american counterpart to the UK mag terrorizer...so thumbs up.
