Horrified are a band from the United Kingdom that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Descent Into Putridity" which will be released in Memento Mori.
A very dark and heavy old school death metal sound starts off the album along with some morbid sounding melodies and a few seconds later the music speeds up a bit and adds in growls and blast beats and the bands musical style is heavily rooted in the mid 80's era of death metal and the solos and leads also bring in the classic Florida style while the blast beats have more of a Swedish feeling to them and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
All of the tracks have more of a raw and old school style of death metal going back to the true original style of this musical genre as well as all of the band members being very young and more than likely that alive when this style of death metal was the most dominant force in the underground but they can play just as well as the originators and you can hear a bit of the Dutch style growls in the vocals and all of the songs bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Horrified goes back to a very early era of death metal bringing back the original true style of this genre and creating an album that is very heavy, raw and old school sounding, the production has a very powerful, raw, heavy and old school 80's sound while the lyrics cover fictional horror stories, death and disease.
In my opinion Horrified are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Narcolepsy" "Buried Among Purified Flesh" and "Repugnant Degeneration". 8 out of 10.
