Buy just a great album by a great band.
Vance Khromachou
This gives Immolation a very distinct, signature sound that is masterfully handled throughout the album.

Some unorthodox guitar soloing comes screaming in, as well.

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.

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.

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.

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!

unfortually i buy a lot of the new music that comes out. normally i listen to the album all the way through several times before forming an opinion. most of the new albums coming out, even if its an old band releasing it, usually are forgetable. with my first listen to majesty and decay i new i had bought a special album. immolation is an old school death metal band from new york, they have been steadily releasing albums for twenty years. i have to say this may just be my favorit immolation album. i dont have every album that they have put out but i do own most of them and this album far exceeds the rest. robet vignas guitar playing is why i always kept coming back to buy the new albums, nothing changes there this has some great guitar work. what always bothered me about this band was there lack of interesting song writing as well as the vocals being to high in the mix. this album has the correct mix and the song writing is so much better and less cheesy the previous releases. the lyrical conent is the same and the drums and the bass are both of high quality. honestly could not tell you a better death metal album that has came out in recent memory.
