This time FVK provides brilliant material soundwise and musicwise. This is still weird narcotic hard core punk delivered with conviction and energy, probably their best recording so far.
On the flip, the aptly named british band Decadence Within plays some sort of progressive metal-core or crossover... The song "Best Kept Secret" develops the same poor guitar riff during 3 minutes. Their sound didn't aged that well and i can't get which musical direction they're heading... To me these two songs are a good example of what went wrong with european HxC during the early 90s. According to their discography, this is one of their last release before they called it quits.
