Decomposed/Hope finally died/Candlelight Records/1993 CD Review

Decomposed where a doom/death metal from the U.K and this is a review of their 1993 album "Hope finally died..." which was released by Candlelight Records.

Drums are mostly slow beats with some midpaced to fast playing that contains some blast beats while the bass playing is all rhythm bass that sounds very powerful at times and follow the riffs coming out of the guitars, as for the e-bow bass when it is used gives the music an avant garde feel.

Rhythm guitars are mostly slow doom/death riffs with some faster death metal riffing that has a Swedish feel at times while the lead guitar has some very depressing and melodic guitar solos as for the acoustic guitars when they used utilize alot od open chords to give the music a darker feel with some classical guitar being used at times.

Vocals are all deep death metal growls that are very easy to understand with some spoken word passages while the lyrics dying and depression, as for the production on this recording which was recorded at Rhythm Studios during April of 1993 sounds very professional for it's time and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.

In my opinion Decomposed where a very good and underrated doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of classic doom/death you should check this band out. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Taste The Dying" "At Rest" and "Procession (of the Undertakers". RECOMMENDED BUY
