Decrepit - "Angel of Shadows"
I'm pretty stoked for the new Ringworm album Scars, which is coming out in four days. Was doing some research into the members' old bands, and came up with this. Cool and virtually unknown blackened death metal with a distinctive sound. There's a strong Morbid Angel influence, but these guys seem to place more emphasis on primal blasting power, and they write labyrinthine atonal riffs like the one at 00:54. Cthulhu shit. Nothing revolutionary, but a neat vintage death metal band that doesn't fit easily into the current cliche of "old school death metal." If you are a death metal buff, this is definitely worth a listen, and I'd be interested to hear your opinions.
