Decibel Magazine Reveals Their Top 40 Metal Albums of the Year

With the way print works, Decibel has to be really on top of their top albums of the year list. That's because it takes about a month to get everything done, so unless they figured it out now, they wouldn't be able to release their year-end issue becfore the end of the year.

You can pick up the full issue, which includes interviews and typically hilarious sidebar lists (my favorite annual feature) for only $6 in the Decibel store.
