25 Years Ago: DECORYAH release Fall-Dark Waters

There is a lot more variety with this record. I think this record has a much different sound than the poor production we did with WF. This record is moodier and there is definitely more variation with this album. I liked WF but it was too much of the same style of music.

Jukka will come up with a riff and we jam and that is how it comes together. Most of the arrangements come out of working within the studio, seeing that while we are in there we have all these ideas and visions of what it is that we want to get out of our music with that specific song. We thought of where to put the woman's vocals or the cello or violins while we were in the studio.

DECORYAH released their second, and until now final, album Fall-Dark Waters on this day in 1996 through Metal Blade.

Coming from Finland, a lot of the music is melancholic and soft, maybe that is what finds its way into our music. There are a lot of bands that like to incorporate their heritage or upbringing styles or even mythology into their music like Amorphis, but we just don't do that or include it. We are not against doing so but we just stay away from it. I'm proud to be Finnish and there is great heritage and culture here but we don't set out to put that into our music.
