Defiance Of Decease are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of dark, goth, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Suicide' which was released by Narcoleptica Productions.
Acoustic guitars and night sounds start off the album along with some melodic guitar leads and spoken word parts a few seconds later and when female vocals are added into the music they give the songs more of a goth feeling while the synths add more atmosphere to the tracks and there is also a brief use of whispers.
When the music gets heavy it also starts adding in melodic guitar leads and death metal growls while also mixing in with the more goth and atmospheric side of the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear a small amount of black metal screams at times.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while a lot of the songs go back to the 90's style of goth doom/death metal while also having more of a modern approach to the genre and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and there is also a brief use of melodic male vocals.
Defiance Of Decease plays a style of goth doom/death metal that is very rooted in the old school tradition while the elements of black and dark metal give the songs more of a modern day feeling, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, evil and depressive themes.
In my opinion Defiance Of Decease are a very great sounding mixture of dark, goth, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres,you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Possessed By A Demon" "Blade Of Death" and "Ribbon Of Life". 8 out of 10.
