2020 may have been a thoroughly miserable year, but we're not going to let that stop us from closing this year out with all guns blazing. The January issue of Decibel sees the metal gods Judas Priest return with their second entry into our hallowed Hall of Fame, this time for their extreme metal classic Painkiller . Our Top 40 Albums of 2020 feature is printed in full, so even if you spoiled the list for yourself (we can still hear your caps lock button from here) you can still read our thoughts on all 40 picks as well as several Top 5 sidebar features. As if that wasn't enough, this issue marks ten years of the Decibel Flexi Series with the Kevin Sharp-fronted grind virtuosos Venomous Concept kicking off our year-long floppy celebration. This is your one shot at glory, so don't miss out on this killer issue!
