Mortal Decay are a band from New Jersey that has been around for more than 20 years and plays a very heavy, old school, gory, and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Blueprint For Splatter" which will be released by Comatose Music.
"Anatomy Turned Chaotic Puzzle" begins with some horror movie spoken word samples and a minute later the heavy guitar and bass riffs, drums and deep death metal growls kick in along with some blast beats and a mixture of mid paced and fast riffing but there is also a brief use of slow parts and technical guitar playing.
