Finnish outfit Amoral provides a steady stream of substantially seething metal on their sophomore affair. DECROWNING is a monstrous 10-track endeavor whose sinewy grooves gel magnificently with the headbanging rhythms found on tracks such as “Tiebraker”. Building from the wondrously prolific template of extreme bands from Finland, Sweden, and Poland, yet managing to lay its own distinct sound down in the process, songs like the title cut switch between blast beated thrashings to swirling breakdowns to six-string brutality with relative ease. With the omnipresence of a discernible guitar-drum lockdown and fitting death growls topping it all off, the new sound of melodic death metal has arrived courtesy of this juggernaut.
