Decayed 'Lusitanian Black Fucking Metal ' review

DECAYED
'Lusitanian Black Fucking Metal'
(War Productions)

Me and fellow scribes are surely obliged to send out our gratitude in forms of bottled spirits to the Portuguese demons for coming up with such self-explanatory album title. Not that it's in any way awkward or badly needed, by now everybody should know what's to be expected from J.A. and his chosen cohorts. Filthy, heavily distorted and primeval thrashing black assault, 666 light-years away from what's considered 'hip' and 'cool' at the given moment by the 'experts' of the scene. While this stubbornness and refusal to tame their appeal had certainly limited the interest in Decayed's music from the general metal public and press there's simply no denying that all those headbangers whose blood cells have been infected with the unhealthy viruses known as 'The Return' or 'Obsessed By Cruelty' are going to crack open and consume copious amounts of beer to the sounds of this album. The Lusitanian tag is justified by seven high-octane blasphemies sung in their native language, which are nicely complimented by cover versions of 'Dead City' and '13 Candles', with the Bathory track being an eerie sounding evil witchfuck, to put it mildly.
