Stages Of Decomposition are a band from Los Angeles, California that plays a very brutal form of slam death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Killing Under Pressure" which was released by Gore House Productions.
Spoken word samples start off the album before going into a very fast and bruta direction that also uses a great amount of blast beats while the vocals also bring in a great mixture of high pitched screams and guttural death metal growls and the mid paced sections also bring in a great amount of slam elements.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the vocals sound almost burped and you can also hear some melodies in some of the riffing and the whole ep also remains very heavy and brutal from beginning to ending of the recording and the last track w as recorded live.
Stages Of Decomposition plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and slamming in the east coast tradition of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violence, gore and serial killers themes.
In my opinion Stages of Decomposition are a very great sounding brutal and slamming death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Killing Under Possession" and "Crawl Space burial". 8 out of 10.
