IMMOLATION - Majesty And Decay Gatefold LP (Black Vinyl)
Regular price €22.99
Immolation’s career has been a very long path, trodden just to get here. This is Immolation’s best album, when it came out a couple of years ago and I first listened to it I knew it was huge but now with the benefits of retrospective I can assure it is at least my favorite recording from this New York based quartet. It encompasses everything they have done before as a band, but even with more vehemence. Inspiration stroked them differently when writing the songs featured on “Majesty and Decay”, an album that must be consulted when looking for references of some pernicious and malignant DM. It’s important to say it because the only difference with some other Immolation albums might be how incredibly memorable and catchy, but still eternally devoted to the cruelty that the black essence of men pours over the world this is. This duality is enriched by the fact that these guys also consider technique when writing and by this I mean not just riffs hard to play, but to imagine in the first place. In your first listens you may not get the timing in your head for riffs until you hear them a couple of times because of their complexity –and simplicity at the same time, maybe they aren’t so difficult to play but the timings aren’t as natural and fluid as they are commonly in the rest of the bands- still they get you hooked and interested in the music. When you finally decipher the songs and learn them in your head listening to them is even more enjoyable, this is Immolation’s finest and most memorable riffing ever.
