Decayed/Of Fire And Evil/Lusitanian Music/2018 CD Review

samedi 2 juin 2018 à 23:50

  Decayed  are  a  band  from  Portugal  that  has  had  music  reviewed  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  very  raw  and  old  school  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "Of  Fire  And  Evil"  which  was  released  by  Lustanian  Music.

  Wind  sounds  and  clean  guitars  start  off  the  album  along  with  a  small  amount  of  synths  and  tortured  screams  before  going  into  a  very  fast  and  raw  musical  direction  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  as  well  as  the  vocals  being  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  music  is  heavily  rooted  in  the  old  school  era  of  the  genre  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  also  sticking  to  the  classic  era  as  well  as  a  small  amount  of  spoken  word  parts  and  ritualistic  synths  also  being  used  on  some  tracks  and  clean  guitars  also  make  a  brief  return  as  the  album  progresses,  the  songs  also  being  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  Decayed  creates  another  recording t hat  remains  true  to  their  old  school  style  of  black  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism, Armageddon,  Death  and  Blasphemy  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Decayed  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  old  school  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "FireStorm"  "Across  The  Sea"  "Blasphemous  Carnage"  and  "Of  Fire  And  Evil".  8  out  of  10.

Hell Arrives.


7.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you open to expanding your line up or do you prefer to remain a duo?
7. In the next recording, two servants of hell will join the circle,We are also planning live rituals but nothing is certain at this stage.

8.The ep is getting released on cassette format, do you feel this format has been making a slow comeback over the years?

everywhere....

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
9. We already received some reviews and the feedback has been positiveso far.Helldprod Records is spreading Satan My Master as a black plague and are
very pleased with their work and proud with our alliance.

10. Musically, In the same direction... Walking towards the abyss...

  A  very  dark  and  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  elements  of  punk  and  d  beat  while  the  riffs  also  use  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  decent  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling.

  Vocals  are  mostly  black  metal  screams  along  with  a  few  growls  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  sound  very  powerful  as  well  as  the  solos  and  leads  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts,  on  some  tracks  the  bass  guitars  also  take  over  as  a  lead  instrument  and  the  music  also  mixes  in  elements  of  noise  and a   brief  use  of  samples.

  On  this  recording  Black  Pestilence  remains  true  to  their  mixture  of  black  metal  and  punk,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  for  being  a  self  released  recording  while  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism  and  Social  Issue  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Black  Pestilence  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  metal and  punk,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "D.I.Y  666"  "Back  To  The  Underground"  "Devil  Of  my  Life"  and  "Countess  Of  Dominion".  8  out  of  10.
