Gods Of Decay is a thoughtful band, it's not only about the sound but also about the meaning they seek to convey.

Collective Psychosis, the first full-length album by the Tokyo-based post-grunge/gothic metal band, Gods Of Decay is an eclectic interlacing of genres, styles, sounds, noises, images, ideas and words. As the guitarist and composer Frost explains, the band's goal is doing something that no one has done before and he believes that Gods of Decay has managed to achieve individuality and originality the band has been striving for.

'When I'm writing songs, I always focus on the melody in the first place. I tried my best to make all the 13 songs on this album to be as different as possible, be it melody-, rhythm- or even noise-wise. The atmosphere of the album is dark and haunting, revealing the inner darkness of human beings,' - Frost says.

Frost's heavy and aggressive guitar riffs and raw noise are intertwined with soft beautiful melody lines accompanied by the songs' digital 'heartbeats' which give them a sensuous edge, and an eerie sampling composed by bassist Yorke who joined the band recently. Yorke's sampling stands out the most in Self-Castigation (SE), the album's opening track, that unveils the dimension that Gods Of Decay create for themselves and for their listeners. Anna pays homage to her love for modernist literature by partially reciting Baudelaire's poetry in Self-Castigation (SE) which sets the theme for the rest of the album's lyrics: a thoughtful exploration of the flawed essence of human beings and the reality they create around them.
