Decibel Magazine’s Albert Mudrian curated the release and he had the following to say about it:

“It was an extreme honor to be called upon to help curate an installment of the truly transformative Metal Massacre series. Rather than concentrate on one particular era or style, I dutifully attempted to bring the best sub-genres metal has produced over the past 40 years into a cohesive portrait of what today’s underground metal scene faithfully represents. May it, Metal Blade Records and Metal Massacre forever reign.”

Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren has shared a new song, titled “Grind To A Halt,” from his Bent Sea project. This track features Midnight’s Athenar and it can be streamed below. Verbeuren told Decibel the following:

“‘Grind To A Halt‘ is the first in a series of songs I dubbed Instagrind. Instagrind grew from a simple idea: How about releasing some quarantine grind on Instagram? So, I rang the bell of the beast, and Athenar answered. 63 seconds later, we had ‘Grind To A Halt. Now I’m gonna dust off my little black book and see who else is up to grind!”

The following statement was issued:

“In an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Philadelphia has announced a city-wide ban on gatherings in excess of 1,000 people, which unfortunately means we have been forced to postpone Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly on April 3-4 at the Fillmore. Though it pains us to see so many plans disrupted as a result, we must remain committed to ensuring the safety of the bands, the breweries, the staff and, of course, the fans during this time.
