||Debut albums sometimes show what bands are
all about, but for most bands you have to wait for the third album
to see if they will stay around. As I see it, Septik
is in between those two groups because of what and how they play.
The band has the death and thrash sound that at times reminded me
of Sadus a little, but more of a death metal vain. Basically they
are death metal with catchy riffing guitars; they are simple but effective.
The majority of the songs are about what you would expect for a debut
album. They are decent but lack the touches that bands have that are
in the forefront today. Production for this CD is ok, but a little
more polishing up could make “Inception of Decay” draw
in more fans. They also may need to tighten up the bass with the guitars
a little more, beside that the band work good together. There are
seven tracks that last about thirty-five minutes. A couple tracks
made this album a good effort, in my opinion. “Dreams In The
Witch House” and “Eve Of Destruction” had a little
more to offer then the rest of the album, beside the last song, which
is a nice instrumental. Don’t get me wrong, there were some
good parts in the other songs, but they weren’t put together
like the previously mentioned. This was first I have heard of this
band, and they did more on this album then I expected. Maybe we will
see more from this band in the future, but hopefully with a little
more fine-tuned sound.
