You can always count on Decibel Magazine for thorough and insightful special issues honoring the history of metal’s many revered subgenres. This fall is no exception, as America’s only extreme music magazine unveils the Top 100 Doom Metal Albums of All Time issue.
Decibel‘s staff navigated a whopping six decades of proto-doom, funeral doom, gothic doom, stoner doom and melodic doom to bring its readership 100 unassailable exemplars of the genre, supplemented with brand new interview content and top picks from a who’s-who of doom’s living legends. Not only that, but the issue features an exclusive Hall of Fame on U.K. doom titans Cathedral’s sophomore stunner The Ethereal Mirror, a truly progressive album that may have been unsung upon its 1993 release, but has only garnered more acclaim with age. It’s the centerpiece of an issue featuring 100 percent never-before-seen content.
Winter is officially upon us-the perfect time to procure this one-of-a-kind paean to desolation HERE . If you want to spend the season lost in history, grab a special bundle containing all of Decibel‘s last four special issues that are still in print HERE.
