Chicago, Illinois based Death Metallers INNER DECAY have just released their second full-length “Enter The Void” via Pest Records on jewel case CD. Here’s what the band commented on it: “It’s been a challenging couple of years. The pandemic hit the world hard and things came to a major slow down, we even had a member who recorded his parts at home while he had Covid, but we kept pushing and made it through as a band. With the hardship of the pandemic slowly moving behind us, we’re very proud to announce the result of our hard work which is our upcoming album “Enter The Void”. Our sophomore album is heavier and with an improved sound compared to our debut “Souls Of War”, but still with a solid dose of epic melodies and catchiness. We’re coming back with the new line-up and with it comes a fresh quality. Our foundation is still the same with Tom as the main songwriter and Silvestre giving a punishing performance with his one-of-a-kind brutal vocal style. Though our new additions made a big difference for the band’s music; Alfred with his powerful bass lines and song writing prowess that added new dimensions for the band’s songs, Dave with his pulverizing drum beats that set the feeling and rhythm perfectly, and Aaron who worked side by side with Tom going back and forth between shredding and melodic guitar solos. We are excited to release this album, and can’t wait to share it with the world.” More INNER DECAY information you will find at www.facebook.com/innerdecayband
