Possibly the loudest book party in history, metal-geek staple Decibel Magazine is celebrating the release of Precious Metal: The Stories Behind 25 Extreme Metal Masterpieces with a lineup that tells the history of grindcore in three short, sweet blasts. Repulsion has a fast-and-loose style of riff-based thrash-grind that made them cult heroes in the late ’80s, Brutal Truth added a metronomic attack that upped the ante in the ’90s, and the feedback-addled Pig Destroyer are the best around today. Blink and you’ll miss it.
