Aus der immer pulsierenden schwedischen Stadt Stockholm kommen Decadence. Die Melodic-Death- und Thrash-Metal-Band wurde 2003 gegründet und besteht aus dem Duo Kitty („Metallic Kitty“) Saric und Kenneth Lantz, die wirklich alles selbst machen. Sogar die Promo wird im Grunde nur durch Streetteams erledigt. Dies ist ein Grund mehr, euch die Combo vorzustellen. Sängerin Kitty beantwortete unsere Fragen.
Who is behind Decadence?

If you had to put your music into a drawer and print a label on it, what would it say?

Forget about genres for a second – DECADENCE’s music sounds like …?
The base is Thrash Metal in the style of Testament and Kreator while there is another level of melody and viciousness over it that could remind of Death. The vocals follow that same combination.
