The earth rumbled, splitting the sea in two. Massive waves foreshadow mankind’s fate, to be crushed by its own arrogance. The sounds of destruction arise from the depths of Heaven, shaping the soundtrack of humanity fading... this drumfire shall be known as Waves Of Decay.
With experienced members/ex-members of Horny Moses, Hope Erodes, Inferior and Last Star Down, the wrecking will be brutal!
All members of Belgium’s Waves Of Decay live and breathe metal in all its forms and styles. On their first EP ‘Cycloptic’ the band blends the bits and parts they like in all of metal’s subgenres: the heaviness of death metal, the melodies and the catchiness of heavy metal and the rhythms and electronics of industrial metal. Add to that some addictive grooves and crushing breakdowns, and it’s clear that Waves Of Decay has already established its own sound.
Waves Of Decay hails from Westmalle and was formed in December 2016 - January 2017 out of the ashes of several other local bands. We finetuned some songs we had written in the past and wrote two new songs. In January 2017 we went to the Breeze Inc. Studios to record five songs, resulting in our first EP 'Cycloptic'. Up-and-coming sound engineer Bob Briessinck (ex - Bloodrocuted) recorded and mixed the EP, and Daan (also from the band Bloodrocuted) provided some nice additional harsh vocals on the tracks 'As I Walk' and 'The Hurricane'. 'Cycloptic' has been released on the 15th of April 2017 in our hometown Westmalle and received some favorable reviews by magazines and webzines (Aardschok, Lords Of Metal, Hell Spawn, ...).
We play a mixture of thrash (Testament, Exodus), a bit of gothic (Sentenced, Amorphis), a bit of industrial (Fear Factory, Die Krupps) and a lot of melodic death (Dark Tranquillity, old In Flames, Soilwork).
