Decay's Beholder

An Album By


Review by

I’ve been eagerly following each new release from this Brazilian death metal band for some time, and Decay’s Beholder does not disappoint. This time around, the band found a home with Canadian startup label Hammerdown Records, but that move strangely made their music harder to find. That aside, Decay’s Beholder shows more progress and experimentation than any of Krig’s previous efforts. The title cut features some of the fastest drumming ever heard, and there is some guitar work here that would do Tourniquet proud. Krig changes their formula often, keeping things fresh and heavy throughout. This young band from Brazil is doing great things.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
