shall define the word faith as follows: Believing in a superior entity, a notion
which, in mankind, in its fragility, confused about its future, seeks answers
through faith, help and comfort in order to keep on living, hoping that its
existence has a meaning. That faith is then transformed by men, perverted and
spoiled into a tool to achieve selfish purposes. Thus religion was born". This
is just one phrase I quote from the band's ideas and it might give you a view on
what they are into and what their lyrics are about.
statements and views have to go hand in hand with aggressive music and so it
does. Not a band for wimps this Livarkahil. The music is a mix of death metal
with some black influences and more modern mechanical sounds and rhythms. Think
of a mix between Behemoth, Slipknot and Morbid Angel. Add vocals in Amon Amarth
kind of style and you should have an idea. Besides that they have rather melodic
parts and the overall style is very bombastic. Combining all these things gives
the band a rather original and recognizable sound. The music is technical and
the combination of thrashy riffs and brutal parts are a pleasure to listen to.
Another band from France that means business and I haven't seen the Signs of
Decay in their music yet. Decent and nice recording.
