Immolation has been around for a while, a long while. The band has earned veteran status after forming in the late 80s and persevering through line up changes, fads, commercial exploitations, record label politics, and just the cruel weathering of time. Which brings us to now, and Immolation's latest album Majesty and Decay. One might question the continued legitimacy of any band that has been around for two decades now. It would be expected that like many bands out of that era, Immolation would have slipped into obscurity or dissolved over time. Majesty and Decay offers a very blunt rebuttal to such expectations.

The album opens with an ambient intro of guitar echoing with waves of breathy noise and swelling distant booms. This leads into a outright assault of blast beats and dissonant strikes titled "The Purge." Serving as an appropriate preview of the rest of the album, this opening track showcases many of the elements that makes Immolation remarkable today and not some artifact of an era long. The band's technical ability surpasses much of the current "extreme music" contemporaries. The technicality of the instrumentation is balanced with a mature and bold and creative artistic direction. Immolation is unafraid to use piercing sonic textures, clean interludes, bizarre timings, juxtapositions of complexity and straight-forward primitive simplicity.

Guitarist Robert Vigna playing style and technique really give the album depth. Playing beyond just harmonies and palm muted bridge chords and dark, fast riffs. He experiments with odd dissonant squeals and octaves. Wailing solos erupt into striking and unexpected torrents of face-melting sound. This gives Immolation a very distinct, signature sound that is masterfully handled throughout the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best immolation album May 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I believe the band showed off its true colors for this album. Bringing out the old school death metal riffs (catchy and but not monotonous) with crunchy bass and drum annihilation. The guitars are dialed into more rhytmn,then solo and not be over whelming(compared to live). Some bands tend to battling or have dueling guitars. Here you have the progression of early Immolation but the polished age of technology. There is just enough blast beats and double based to keep it honest. There is not anything boring about this album from intro to outros,this is to be a death metal masterpiece. It proves why Immolation's bassist/vocalist(Ross Dolan) stands next to Deicide's(Glen benton),Slayer(Tommy Araya) and Morbid Angel's(David Vincent) as the best of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Metal at its best May 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
let's get things straight, Immolation never disappoints and "Majesty and Decay" comes to prove, again, that they cannot be beaten by any other band around. Death Metal at its most intrincate, harmonious and relentless. Hands down! Immolation owns you all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of majesty here January 13, 2011
By Josef
Format:Audio CD
Some things never change. AC/DC continues to re-release the same album, Keith Richards is making like Dick Clark and mocking us all with his immorality, Cannibal Corpse is still the undisputed king of crap hill... And Immolation is still making quality death metal.

Really I don't think these guys have missed a beat in their 24 year(!) career. Majesty And Decay is not bucking that trend and actually surpasses their past 3 albums.

Instead of pushing the barriers of how heavy a band can sound like they did on the sometimes plodding Shadows In The Light, Immolation focused on making more diverse songs this time around. The first minute of "The Purge" goes through three rhythm and riff changes alone.

Vocals are what you'd expect from R. Dolan, the steady roar with surprising clarity. But the star of Immolation are the guitars - what makes Immolation Immolation is the deeply rhythmic and sinister sounding riffs. They're here in top form - and there's noticeably more of them than last time. Distorted harmonic solos are never overused or out of place, instead they're blended more into the rest of the song which makes for that greater diversity I mentioned before. When they feel like it the band goes into blasting mode, but are smart enough not to drag it out too long. Two highlights of this new approach are "Divine Code" at 2:34 - a very subtle low riff that sounds almost subdued and builds into a solo at the close and "A Glorious Epoch" at 2:22 - one guitar playing along with the bass and the second tremolo picking while the drums do well timed bass fills.

Drummer S. Shalaty had big shoes to fill after A. Hernandez left and just barely did on Shadows.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shoo-in for 2010's top five list June 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If 2007's "Shadows In The Light" was the sound of Immolation being hungry (and it was), then on 2010's "Majesty And Decay," these four death metal stalwarts from Yonkers, New York sound positively starving! Easily their fastest, heaviest, angriest, and most aggressive affair to date, and possibly their most technical, the group's eighth full-length effort viciously roars by as an avalanche of crushing death metal with grinding intensities. Really tight, precise, and pummeling blast beats, string-bending death riffs, technical solos, monstrous rhythms, thick, rumbling bass lines, and evil, Cookie Monster -- yet still intelligible -- growls occupy this 45-minute playing time. But the songs never play like just a choppy assortment of riffs or ideas, because no matter how serrated and dissonant as they may be, they always seem to flow rather nicely into one another, thus creating a strong "album" feel, here. (The record/songs have wall-to-wall sequencing.)

But that is certainly not to say that "Majesty and Decay" is without its fair-share of standout tracks. "The Purge," with its carnage-inducing interplay between its seismic blasts and nimble-fingered, blackened-tinged tremolo picking, forms a jackhammer-insistence that sounds similar to that of old-school Mayhem. Some unorthodox guitar soloing comes screaming in, as well. Sure, like several songs found here, there is a mid-tempo breakdown (complete with looming guitar harmonies) included around the mid-section of the song; but it lasts for only a few seconds before the onslaught resumes. "A Token Of Malice" is a blinding assault of even faster and more furious drumming, and huge, gut-rumbling grooves that plow forward like a massive rockslide down a descending mountainside.
