Decoryah - _Fall-Dark Waters_
(Metal Blade, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Finland's Decoryah's sophomore effort, _Fall-Dark Waters_, flows with a captivating essence throughout, rarely losing the listener and always releasing bitter-sweet bursts of classically balanced guitar, violin and cello orchestrations that piece together quite the collection of material. More focused and better produced than their debut album for Metal Blade, 1995's _Wisdom Floats_, _FDW_ is 9-song ride into the world and visions of this three-piece. Classical death metal (much like Orphanage) may be the best assessment of the material found on their latest LP with the musical interludes, the use of angelic female vocalist/singers and strong songwriting. Standouts include title track, "Gloria Absurdiah" and "Some Drops Beyond the Essence". A recommended listen for those that enjoy long intricate atmospheric metallic numbers.
