"The Decline" is a massive and heavy black metal attack. Threatening, dark, merciless. The sound is powerful, transparent and well balanced. But brutality is not the only impression, there are also more silent melancholic or sad passages, really touching. This album is a kind of emotional rollercoaster and an intensive experience. Check "Joyless" or "Soulless", two epic monuments in the best sense. Candidate for 2022's Top 10!
Favorite track: Soulless.
