Filmed onsite, on tour: Choosing Death: The Almost Seven-Minute Documentary!


The metal fiends at independent film production company FreqsTV were cool enough to ask our editor-in-chief, Albert Mudrian, to participate in a pretty damn wide-reaching documentary short (for just a seven-minute run-time)! Shot during the final day of the 2015 Decibel Tour at NYC's Webster Hall and Saint Vitus (site of Vallenfyre's free afterparty), the documentary tells you everything you ever wanted to know about not only the revised and expanded Choosing Death, but what it takes to curate the Decibel Tour and create this goddamn magazine every month! 


Decibel Tour IV Is Dead. Long Live Decibel Tour IV!

We're not gonna hurt ourselves patting our own backs, and we're not even going to TRY to give ourselves a reacharound (the top of the masthead is separated by a couple states anyway); we're just going to offer our sincerest thanks to all the bands, promoters, venues, managers, crew and fans who made the fourth annual Decibel Magazine Tour an extremely memorable experience. 

After three weeks, the tour concluded successfully in New York City last Sunday -- and we after-partied in style with a free Vallenfyre gig at Brooklyn heavy haven Saint Vitus. The last three gigs were sold out, and in fact a third of the dates overall were accomplished the same. It's a sure sign that adventurous bills like these -- bringing together doom, hardcore, death metal and more -- can kick ass on a national scale (okay, a little self-fellatio never hurt). We can't wait to roll up our longsleeves and start curating the fifth installment of this monster. See you all out on the road next year, and until then, enjoy this full-set video of Vallenfyre from the true close of the Decibel Tour 2015.

Yahoo Live was kind enough to offer a live streaming of the Swedish death metal titan's set from the Chicago date of the tour. Check it out here:


Pallbearer Premiers New Video
