Decibel

The year-end lists just keep coming. Following Rough Trade and Uncut comes the first major metal list of the year, Decibel‘s Top 40 Albums of 2018. As usual, their list is a good mix of hot younger bands like Tomb Mold, Outer Heaven, Horrendous, and Khemmis, and lifers like Judas Priest (who come in very high), Satan, Voivoid, At the Gates, Sleep, and more. Check out the full list below, and you can read more and order your copy of Decibel‘s January 2019 issue here.
