Le Chesh Old School Melodic Death Metal in the style of Horrendous. absolutely stellar stuff to be found here. if you want a modern take on old school then look no further. to top it off, the sound on vinyl is amazing. Favorite track: The Ruins That Remain.

Richard Neary Epic thundering tunes. More on the Black/Death side of Metal than melodic, but with enough key changes and breakdowns to separate this from the herd. In fact this is the wolf to the herd! Love the surprise guitar solos. Favorite track: Chasm Of Nihrain.

about

"Horrified should be very proud of Of Despair. They’ve gone way beyond my expectations and produced a record that, despite a couple of niggles, can compete with the best of today’s old-school death metal crop." - 3.5/5 -Angry Metal Guy

"Of Despair builds on the raw - and - raunchy, chainsaw - hacking - through - brains approach splat out on there debut, but with copious amounts of sweet and sombre melody resulting in a highly focused and impressive sophomore release." - Decibel Magazine

"Of Despair is a skilful and diverse beast, showcasing a variety of styles whilst maintaining the sheer brutality of classic death metal favourites. Horrified have come a long way in two years and are well into the process of carving out their niche; in another two they could well become one of the UK's best" - Terrorizer

"Of Despair is a chillingly refreshing release and a breath of melodious musical air." - Iron Fist

"While the straightforward death metal moments are very good, it’s those moments of downtempo grandiosity that separate Horrified from other modern day death metal bands. It’s in those moments that Horrified offer us reassurance for death metal’s future, even in being so reminiscent of its past." - The Sludgelord

"Of Despair is a multi-faceted sophomore album that takes many chances — all of which succeed. Instead of rehashing old glory, Horrified take their many influences and use them to create an album’s worth of refreshing, gritty and emotionally tinged death metal." - Nine Circles
