3 stars THE FOUR INSTRUCTIVE TALES... OF DECOMPOSITION was the second demo EP released by tech death metal band DEMILICH in 1991 and pretty much continues from the first EP "Regurgitation Of Blood." While Antti Boman's trademark hellish gurgled vocals in the vocal fry range are prevalent, the musicianship is still not up to par as to what the band would conjure up on "Nespithe" however it has taken a few steps in that direction. Firstly Mikko Virnes' drumming patterns have become more complex and are beginning to lead the way in the unique angular rhythms the band has become famous for. The titles are becoming more outlandish and despite being clearly Carcass inspired have taken the whole gorefest approach to a new level by adding alien twists and turns to the whole thing. Just check out "And The Slimy Flying Creatures Reproduce In Your Brains!" The guitars and bass, however, are still basic old school death metal with Bolt Thrower being the band that sounds most similar to my ears. The music continues to conjure up shock and awe with an immense appetite for the most macabre, hideous and funereal subject matter the human mind can conceive. I love it! No need to hunt this down as it was released in cassette form only and probably impossible to find in that format. Instead find this on the digitally remastered compilation "20th Adversary Of Emptiness" which includes every single thing the band ever recorded. 3.5 rounded down
