𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Descent into Putridity; packed with raw-heavy

encrusted riffs, melodic- wailing solos, that will melt your face,

Of Despair, as more of melodic death, then their debut, moving more with

melodic riffs with an atmospheric black metal/buzzsaw feel,

Allure of the Fallen, more progressive metal & melodic death metal riffs

& solos, more cleaning and epic (with a sincere emotional feel)

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Descent into Putridity; deep filling of harsh growls,

Of Despair, moves away from the harsher growling, more to a lower

growling/shrieking vocal, Allure of the Fallen, has more of an echo

feel to the growls.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Descent into Putridity & Allure of the Fallen; Fast-rotten

pummeling drumming with countless blast-beats, Of Despair, moving into

a clean slow-mid tempo drumming

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Horrified music is like reading three volumes of a

Necronomicon [nee to warning to one soul]

Starting with their debut album ‘Descent Into Putridity’ is very reminiscent

of early Pestilence & Entombed, within the first pages, the debut is the much darker colour, pages are missing; meaning that the powers of the book are much more significant in a rotten and very low-fi recording, with the musicianship, is their (without debt), a full-on brutal-fest of raw death metal while creating a style of their own

Turning to volume two & three, these three Necronomicons appears to be much cleaner, with pages intact, giving the Of Despair a more feeling of melodic blackened death, keeping their brutal feel but added clean melodic riffing and more of atmospheric feel to both albums

Horrified (for me) are in their league of their own, pull off some outstanding music, while not keeping each collection the same, by multifaceted the riffs, vocals, drums, sound & music

Ranging from cold doomy metal, atmospheric blackened death, hard-driven music, fuel pumping, clean passages, raw & rotten, instrumental sections etc.

For fans of every kind of metal styles, don’t miss out on Horrified!


**A overall of epic masterpiece* * brilliant/enjoyable *

*Awe-Inspiring from start to end*

*beautiful crafted & foretold like an epic horror*

Death metal that reads like

three volumes

of a Necronomicon

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Everything you could ask for, extreme – dark & evil – epic and full of horror

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: Don’t know where to start?

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none!!
