Dripping Decay – Festering Grotesqueries (Truly Dripping Old School Death Metal)


Not much else to expect from a band naming themselves Dripping Decay, than, well, exactly that! I love it when artists immerse themselves in an idea, and these guys are completely covered in stuff that drips. Their logo drips, their artwork drips, and the music, yes, it drips. Their “mascot” is even named ‘Drippy,’ so like, get it? And you know what? I wanted to drip. I’ve felt like exuding a number of things recently, and Festering Grotesqueries provided ample leakage to fulfill this internal need.


If everything isn’t entirely clear from the outset, track titles like “Barf Bag” and “Abundant Cadaveric Waste” will complete the picture. There is no shame here, and there needn’t be. Dripping Decay are to modern metal what practical effects were to 1980s VHS horror aberrations. Read: old school, hands-on, physically revolting and tangible death metal. Old school is usually static in how it operates, but not here. Each track brings with it a new pustule to ooze into the ears, a new vessel into which one shall wretch. Fast, vibrantly disgusting, all of the splattering trash we enjoy around here.
