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.
