Totally Underrated Album, a rare gem

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Back in 1992 I read about Epidemic's Decameron in Guitar World under the "Metal Detector" column. The album recieved 4 stars out of 5 with no explanation as to why. So naturally I picked up the cassette of Decameron. Epidemic later put out "Exit Paradise" which was a lack luster album at best, and did not touch the sheer force of Decameron.(Which could be due to guitarist Guy Higbey leaving the band) HOWEVER This album smokes, and the sound is a type of thrash/death metal with heavily distorted guitars, and bass, with Chuck Schuldiner esque vocals ala Death's "Human" time frame. With hints to Sepultura's Arise period. I loved, and still love this album as it was one of the catalysts to me wanting to play guitar. The song "Factor Red" being an oustanding song where the bass is ebowed with heavy distortion throughout most of the song. And cool lyrics to boot such as: "Retina's burn, as my eyes raise towards a dying star, half devoured sky bleeds red, melt to core no remains" it doesn't get cooler than that, I think all fans of early 90's post thrash(ex: Pantera, Exhorder, Sepultura)to pick this up!!! I love this CD, it's awesome. Just remember though, Exit Paradise=Garbage, Decameron: Totally awesome."
