Death thrash that combines a few other metal styles
Combining genres in death metal is a risky gambit. Some are capable of pulling off this feat while others come up short in their endeavor. Blood and Brutality are somewhere in the middle for me. With 'Decor Macabre' you get some really diverse sound that is quite unexpected but when the band lapses back into the old school death metal it falls into that obscure melting pot of dm bands. The vocals are pretty straight forward with no frills, just growling and aggressive deliveries. The music has some engaging riffs and well-placed solos but really lacks anything to seriously grab hold of you. While it isn't a genre defining album, this one is definitely worth a spin and going forward it will be interesting to see what the band's next move will be.
