Decibel's 100th-issue-show celebration was professionally shot and recorded on January 19, 2013 in the magazine's hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The nearly two-hour "Decibel's 100th Issue Show: The Movie" features performances from CONVERGE, PIG DESTROYER, REPULSION, MUNICIPAL WASTE, TOMBS and EVOKEN, as well as guest performances by Tomas Lindberg of AT THE GATES and John Baizley of BARONESS. The DVD also contains nearly three hours' worth of exclusive bonus material.The DVD is limited to 1000 copies and available exclusively through Decibel's webstore. Video footage of CONVERGE performing the song "Locust Reign", taken from "Decibel's 100th Issue Show: The Movie", can be seen below. Founded in 2004, Decibel's credo was to examine and expose the best extreme music had to offer. Since its debut issue (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, October 2004), Decibel has prided itself in exploring the lurid, the outlandish, in hoisting the unsung. Decibel's covered the controversial, too. Homosexuality in metal? Check. The relationship between metal and National Socialism? Check. Guys with inverted crosses burned into their foreheads? Check. The magazine's revered Hall Of Fame series explores and honors metal milestones. In fact, some of its most celebrated Hall Of Fame stories made the magazine-to-book journey. "Precious Metal: Decibel Presents The Stories Behind 25 Extreme Metal Masterpieces" (Da Capo) has been called "required reading," "gripping" and "skull-crushing." The magazine also reviews musical instruments, movies and other diversions. Occasionally funny, but always insightful and informed, Decibel's opinion is respected. Even revered. Maybe that's why The Village Voice called the publication "the best music magazine around right now." CONVERGE performing "Locust Reign":
