Decibel Fest's 2021 lineup is gunning for the heavy hardcore history books. The annual Metal & Beer festival is returning to Philly this fall with a stacked bill that boasts Converge, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer and the first legitimate Deadguy revival in nearly 25 years. 

The fest is catering directly to fans of Nineties and early aughts 'core music by having the three main headliners play through their most seminal albums. Converge will be tackling 2001's Jane Doe, Napalm Death will bang through both 1990's Harmony Corruption and 1992's Utopia Banished, and Pig Destroyer will run through 2001's Prowler in the Yard. Each of those sets will be fucking electric, but Deadguy's reformation of their massively influential Fixation on a Co-Worker lineup is arguably even more exciting. 

Additionally, Municipal Waste, Immolation, Blood Incantation, Imperial Triumphant, Warhorse, Eternal Champion, Crypt Sermon, Die Choking, and Teeth will round out the lineup.

The whole thing is taking place the weekend of September 25th and 26th at the Fillmore in Philly. Single-day and weekend pass tickets are available here. Check out the official flier below to see the many beer companies that will also be attending.
