Death Decline
Created in 2008, Death Decline is a thrash and death metal band from Dijon with Fabien Legué on guitar, Alexandre Morel on bass, Alexis Fleury on vocals, Jordan Henriques on guitar and Arnaud Fournet on drums.
After the EP (6 tracks) 'Bloodstained Redemption' in 2013, 'Built For Sin' in June 2015, 'The Thousand Faces of Lies' in October 2018, Death Decline released, in November, a new album: 'The Silent Path' (10 tracks).  

A concentrated burst of seething energy hits the Altherax stage with 'Jackals', the 2nd track from their new album. The rough and fulminating voice of Alexis, supported by high screams, petrifies us on the spot. A very beautiful guitar solo momentarily calms this blaze by its musicality of a great purity. Alexis asks: "Nice, do you want some thrash?" The answer from the audience is unequivocal and he announces 'Silent Path'. Between furious roars and menacing imprecations, demented rhythms and sharpened melodic solos, the spell is at work. Darker, more death, but also tinged with hardcore, 'Little Boy' literally twists our body. Alexis takes advantage of this murderous rhythm to ask the audience, whom they call "my little cats", to put "a fucking mess". A circle pit starts. Above Their Weakness' offers varied and remarkable melodic structures. Despise and Delusion' throws martial and brutal chords at us. Before starting 'No Fate', Alexis solicits the help of the audience by indicating that "at his signal, we will have to shout: No Fate, but what we make", which will be done with enthusiasm when the time comes. A beautiful and furious finale with 'Useless Sacrifice', track from the album 'The Thousand Faces of Lies', which can be found in the episode "Band in China" (season 23) of the American satirical animation series: South Park, alongside the thrash metal band Dying Fetus.  

Death Decline has many live shows to its credit, including one at Hellstage (Hellfest 2019). Their stage energy is visceral. Alexis' vocal abilities allow him to use screams, roars, growls, clear vocals, with power. Regularly, he addresses the public, and remains connected with him. The musicians ensure with professionalism, at a completely supercharged rhythm, distilling strong and effective technical parts. A solid band hitting a gripping death thrash!
