Decortica – A New Aesthetic
26 Jan 2009 // A review by JohnS
The first time I listened to Decortica
’s album, it was very different from what I have ever heard before, it reminded me of an alternative album from the early 90's, when artists were trying to recreate the 1970's classic rock sound. This album unfortunately failed to impress me. I did not manage to find a favorite song on the album however, Synapse
did appeal slightly but will not make the MP3 playlist. A friend of mine really enjoyed the band with a comment
Quote:This album has a strong “emo” rock feel with some power ballads thrown in for good measure
One thing I did love was how the music flowed matching the lead singers energy which has a very radio friendly sound that I hope to hear in the future.
If you like the latest rock music coming out of the states then give Decortica
a try, you might just like it.
Buy the T-shirt. Buy the Album.
Sonically careening between brutal peaks of intensity and quiet moments like the beginning of a storm, Decortica's third album "11811" is an engrossing affair from start to finish.

Recorded and produced by long-time collaborator David Holmes (Jakob, Kerretta, An Emerald City), "11811" continues Decortica's journey into the depths of angular alternative rock, while exploring elements of prog, hard
rock and alternative-metal.
