Mortuus Decadence

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

If you're anything like me, seeing a name like Tyrannic isn't too inspiring. But something I've learned over the years is to never judge a book by its cover or, as is the case here, a band by its name. I mean, it's kind of a coolish name, just kind of cliché at the same time. So, what these Aussies have in store for us is some heavy black metal with a strong doom vibe. I won't go as far as to call it blackened doom like the press release does, as I hear the black metal a lot more than the doom. Well, who cares as long as it's good, right? Tyrannic present, on this second album, a strong slab of dark, heavy, crushing black metal that's held together by an atmosphere that'll give most people the chills—some of this stuff would do well as a subtle soundtrack to one of those horror movies that banks on the watcher guessing as opposed to gore or what have you to bring in the effect. This is the kind of music that comes and grabs you and surfaces your biggest fears and darkest, most haunting thoughts. Mortuus Decadence is filled with slow, heavy, atmospheric black metal that sounds like it came straight from the depths of hell, and sometimes that exactly what the doctor ordered. Good stuff.
