Decree is known for their frontman Chris Peterson, of Front Line Assembly fame, and for a quite relaxed release scheduling: this only their third release in 15 years but this is not a question if the result is a good album. Their sound has his foundation in the crossover between electronics and metal that gives birth to what is called as industrial metal.
This album is slow, heavy and closer to metal than electronics. "Finite years" open the record with the keystone of decree's sound: metal guitars, tribal rhythm and shouted vocals. The basic influence of this band is clearly Ministry but there's enough personal ideas to make the track enjoyable. The titletrack is even more openly classical in his sound. "The pray" is a doomy anthem while "Bloodthirst" reveals the rhythm impact as their key tract and so "Into the light" overwhelms the listener with his powerful drums. "Faded glory" close this album with their classic structure but carefully assembled.
A '90 style powerful industrial sound. It will stay in the iPod of all industrial music fans. Quite nice :)
