The Mosonmagyaróvár band, which was formed in 1996, adopted the name Depths Of Depravity only in 2000. It was the year when the three founding members were joined by a new drummer, who’s been in the band ever since, and with whom they started to work on their first LP right away. They went into the studio and spent five days there, recording eight songs for Into the Decay.

Those who like extreme music may instantly recognize the name of the band, which is actually a Suffocation song. This already suggests that Depths Of Depravity play "brutal death metal" (as my little family usually refers to it, showing off how well-informed they are, whenever a similar album goes into my cd player). Whatever Depths Of Depravity play, they play it at a high standard. They released a dense, speedy album, where only the drums can go against the massive guitar riffs, trying to conquer them with a comprehensive percussion attack. Such albums too often become flat after one or two tracks; however, "Into The Decay" is a healthy exception to that with its energetic and lively pulse. True, an LP like this is not too varied, due to its density; still, Depths Of Depravity manage to break the usual monotony of such albums with well-chosen changes of rhythm. They mention Suffocation and Immolation as their bands of inspiration, which can indeed be told from their music, but I’m sure they also listen to Death.

The title song, which is the first track as well, is already strong as hell. The tons of riffs mentioned above will break your neck before you can get a little rest, but only at the slower parts. And it goes on in each song, except in the closing instrumental track, "Of Heart", which flows at a leasurly pace, as a suitable, almost relaxing ending to this weighty album. All in all, the band set up a high standard for themselves with "Into The Decay", which is to be appreciated, given the fact that it’s their first album.
