Music Review: Decrepitaph – Beyond The Cursed Tombs

So there is someone making old-school death metal in 2011, and it happens to be a band from Texas. Decrepitaph rely solely on doing things the old way – fat-sounding guitars, attempts at large-sounding riffs, intros from horror movies, hardly any blast beats, full-on growling…

The most interesting thing about Decrepitaph is their former bassist: Daterape. What an impressive name he has! Sure, the other guys (Sinworm and Elektrokutioner) sound alright, but no name has ever thrilled me the way Daterape has. Why didn’t my parents name me that? I’ll google the Sanskrit translation and name my kid that. The first song off Beyond The Cursed Tombs is It Shrieks From Below, which has probably got to do with strange sounds coming from underground, but it could also be  about Daterape making out with a fat bitch.


The other songs are about anti-Christianity (Festered Messiah, Desecrated Divinity), fat sluts who have been getting clingy (Repugnant Manifestations, Catacomb of Ghastly Souls), and what happened when Daterape gate-crashed a party of the aforementioned fat sluts (Haunted Mausoleum, Barbaric Autopsy). It’s enjoyable, no doubt – but it’s like watching a campy horror flick: it doesn’t scare you because you’re all grown up now, but you totally dig the way they’re trying to impress you. I’m just unhappy Daterape is no longer in the band.

“I love your daughter and want to marry her!”

“You seem like a nice guy. What’s your name?”
