Immolation - Majesty and Decay

Posted on Monday, August 09, 2010

What more can be said of the remarkable 20-year career of the mighty Immolation? How many bands can lay claim to their eighth full-length album having the same jarring ferocity as their first or second? Immolation simply are not interested in fixing what is not broken. Essentially the same formula as any one of their nearly flawless albums, Majesty and Decay sizzles and jabs with the band’s trademark technical proficiency and atonal brutality. Quite possibly the best production the band have ever achieved with the rhythm section and Ross Dolan’s bestial, demonic roar the primary beneficiaries. Bob Vigna is still the jagged riff master, his otherworldly concoctions are in a distant league of their own. Immolation have always succeeded in making their own brand of Death Metal their own way. Boundary pushing brutality and unmatched creativity, yet still memorable and beyond focused. The completely pro-Jesus Christ lyrics on this album did throw me for a loop at first though. Ha! Just kidding. Favorites: “The Purge,” “A Token of Malice,” “The Rapture of Ghosts,” and “The Comfort of Cowards.”
