DECATUR “Badder Than Brooklyn” Genre: Groovy Thrash Metal DECATUR is a very young band from Toronto, Canada, that can now pass their first album “Badder Than Brooklyn”. Confidently they call themselves “Metal Messiahs” and pay close attention to their own integrity. DECATUR claim to be interested in other non-Metal genres such as Blues, Rock’n’Roll and Pop. Her very modest credo: “If it’s good, we can do it better.” Okay. DECATUR gambling hip Good-mood thrash metal, reasonably well played and entertaining – you could call this also “pretty cool”. No idea why DECATUR are so much cooler than average groove groups. It’s not just the hipster beards, but the facial hair seems to have some relevance in the men’s camp. After all, DECATUR refer to the second song, Into The Night ‘in the booklet as “Beard Song”. DECATUR act carefree, carefree and with a grin on the face. In addition, the guys have a feel for catchy arrangements. Quite surprisingly DECATUR also have some serious lyrics like in the opener ‘Internal War’, which, however, is chanted with the same good mood. DECATUR “Badder Than Brooklyn” ends with great taste, revisiting the opening ‘Internal War’ and crafting an almost progressive instrumental.
