Decrepitaph/Forgotten Scriptures - The Collection/Selfmadegod Records/2012 CD Compilation Review


  Decrepitaph  are  a band  from  San  Diego,  California  that  plays  a  very  old  school,  dark  and  heavy  form  of  death/doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  compilation  album  Forgotten  Scriptures  -  The  Collection"  which  was  released  by  Selfmadegod  Records.

  Drums range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  drumming  with  only  a  small  amount  of  fast  playing  and  no  blast  beats,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars  and  at  times  they  have  a very  strong  and  powerful  sound  to  them, as  for the  sound  effects  they  are  only  used  on  the  intro's  and  outro's  and  they  bring  a  very  dark  and  evil  sound  to the  music.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  old  school  death  metal  with  the  darkest  and  heaviest  elements  of  doom  metal  along  with  some  dark  and  evil  sounding  melodies  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  anywhere  on  this  recording.

  Vocals are  all  deep  death/doom  metal  growls  along  with  some  horror  film  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism,  Occultism,  Anti  Christian  and  Gore  themes,  as  for t he  production  it  has  a very  dark,  heavy,  strong  and  powerful  sound  to  it.    

  In   my  opinion  Decrepitaph  are  a very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  old  school  death  and  doom  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck out t his  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rot  In  The  Grave"  "Throne  Of  The  Diabolical  Ones"  "Forever  Christ  Forsaken"  and  "Horrid  Visions  Of  Mutilation".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
