Metal aficionados will know the name of guitarist Michael Phillips (Deliverance, Fasedown, The Sacrificed), but few might know about his pre-1990 band Decadence with vocalist Paul White. Both Phillips and White reconnected years later and decided to re-record some of their early demos, which evolved into this 4-song EP. For good measure, they threw in 11 bonus tracks of various types (demos and live recordings, including a live Deliverance cut, “In You” from 2009). While some songs might sound slightly tired or sonically muddy in parts, it earns collector’s points and features some really good guitar playing throughout.
