The Beyond – Decaying Death [EP]

No Image Available

An Italian Old School Death Metal band inspired by a Luca Fulci movie…sure, why not! The band has taken the 1988 – 1992 American scene as inspiration point for their debut EP, and doesn’t suck at it. Brutal Old School riffs are mixed with some nice melodic ones. Where “Crime and Punishment” has some old Cannibal Corpse or early Monstrosity vibe, “Tortured till Redemption” is unmistakably inspired by Death as it starts with a typical “Leprosy” harmonization. Mostly it’s straightforward and not revolutionary, but all played with passion for this style of metal. Adding the common growl (the old Chris Barnes style) and crunchy sound, and you have an enjoyable debut by The Beyond. (Ricardo)
