Despair - Decay of Humanity

  | Cassette

Despair-Decay of Humanity Used, but in good condition...

Powerful speed metal in the vain of Sanctuary's "Into the Mirror Black." Despair are not a clone, but this was the closest comparison I could come up with while listening to this disc. The vocals are far different from that of Warrell Dane, but certainly fitting and competent. Most of the time Andreas Hentschel sings in a mid-range aggressive thrash mode, but adds in some lower growls and an occasional high pitched scream for effect without it becoming overkill. Musically this band just shreds; plenty of fast downbeats, speedy riffs, double bass, and the occasional somber moment. 'Beyond All Reason' is a German-flavored, early-nineties speed metal attack, with an occasional progressive touch. Many have labeled this band as thrash metal, but I'd say they are much closer to the speed metal of early Blind Guardian than to classic thrash metals like Exodus or Kreator. The album ends with a killer instrumental that exits in a flurry of dual guitar solos that are absolutely stunning. Apparently this disc, as well as their first two discs are all out of print.
