Decibel Magazine Releases “Top 100 Old-School Heavy Metal Albums of All Time” Issue

Tuesday, 10th November 2015

It’s that time of year again! Decibel has been banging its heads overtime to concoct an annual special issue with 100 percent never-before-seen content. Slip on your old studded vest and behold The Top 100 Old-School Metal Albums of All Time!

What, exactly, is “old-school” metal? Decibel says any metal album released prior to 1989 that doesn’t adhere to extreme metal subgenres (thrash, death, black, doom, etc.). So, in addition to reading about Dio-era Sabbath, early Maiden and all things King Diamond, you get a brand new Hall of Fame on Exciter’s speed metal debut, Heavy Metal Maniac.

This limited edition old-school goldmine includes all-new interviews with Maiden, Priest, Motörhead and more metal royalty.

The issue can be ordered at this location.
