Decayed - Unholy Demon Seed

Decayed is a three piece old school black metal band from Portugal Parade Lisbon. Members are Vulturius - Vocals and bass, JA - Vocals and guitar, Tormentor-drums.

Unholy Demon Seed compilation released on April 2013 under Iron, Blood & Death Corp. Raw and powerful are my first thoughts. If one was to invoke the fire of hell this might a good soundtrack. As far as production, its a good decent recording but there are a few variances on a few tracks, consider this is a compilation of several materials from different time periods. Guitar tone is raw in true BM dissonance. Fast aggressive passages along with grind phrases and savage drums pummeling abound. Bass is maintaining a solid form through most of the tracks. Hellish style vocals send shivers done the spine. The album consist of sixteen songs which is a huge amount of music to explore. This band is very active and have been around for a very long time, almost two decades to be exact. They have several live shows in their country plus several youtube videos. 

Some of the most stand out tracks of the disc are Crucifixion, memorable hymns and sick vocals. The track Martelo Do Inferno, for incorporating female vocals making this a very haunting song. Onslaught the Holy Flock, for its relentless bm brutality.

In conclusion, the album is devastating in all its compositions. Fans of Venom, old Sepultura, Samael, Satyricon or Mayhem will want to add this compilation to their collection. Be sure to investigate the bands huge library of music that spans from 1990 to 2014.
