In the time that I’ve been writing my little blog, I’ve come across quite a few bands that have given me hope in the future of music. One of those bands is Dekades. These goth rockers have been beyond consistent with all the material they have put out. On their newest EP, the band has stretched out past the norm of most goth/Post Punk bands. They have upped the groove and added another dimension that packs a bit more bounce. The rhythm section of Chris Cano on drums and James Carter on bass have a real knack for pushing the groove to the forefront while guitarist Josh Benson provides dynamic structures upon which multi-instrumentalist Matt Shores applies his ambient textures and all this is tied together with vocalist/guitarist Arden Fisher vocal delivery and conviction. Dekades is definitely a band to be on the lookout for.
