Yes, it’s a book but damn good one and now it’s available from The Decibel Magazine’s webstore as a revised & extended version. This book does not cover the whole story of death metal nor grindcore but it surely is one of a kind release. For me this is like a journey to the year 1990 when I was totally blown away when I placed the debut album by Deicide on my turntable… and along came Napalm Death, Entombed, Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Death, Obituary, Pestilence etc. Oh, those years..
This extended version covers roughly the main events & bands up to this date and surely it’s not intended only for us, mummified middle-aged corpses. Recommended, if you are still able to read text from the pages of an actual, physical book. This revised & extended version is limited to 3000 numbered copies and is still available exclusively from Decibel’s webstore. Go for it, you wont regret it.
