They turned -- and decapitated -- heads opening the 2014 Decibel Tour, they "defiled" the Flexi Series, and their debut was our ninth favorite record of 2013. Now the teenage thrashers of Noisem have graduated to Decibel's cover, and they've revved up a worthy successor in Blossoming Decay. We chronicle the Baltimore quintet's fast ascent to metal's upper echelon in the June issue.
More young guns blaze within our hallowed Hall of Fame. Death Angel forged a path for young shredders everywhere with their 1987 masterpiece, The Ultra-Violence, and we corral the classic lineup for an exclusive look back.
This stacked issue also features the latest on High on Fire's new album, a review of Faith No More's long-awaited comeback, and a typically twisted Agoraphobic Nosebleed flexi. Pick up the June Decibel now!
