If the latest song "Middle", from the band Waiting For Decay, is any indication of what's to come, then I personally am watching the clock waiting for the new CD to drop. The song is aggressive, the vocals are stellar and it is obviously the product of pure, raw, incredible talent. Every time I hear a song from these guys and think it's the best one they have done yet, something like "Middle" emerges and I am proven wrong once again. - Metalholic Magazine- Slaverwriter6

"Metal Sanaz"

"After listening to WFD for the first time , I knew I found some thing REAL GOOD . Beside the talent that is obviously heard in the music , I loved the fact that it drew me in from the first note to the end . There was no need to listen to it a hundred times to get the "Feeling" , so before the first song was over , I was already writing the guys to thank them for being such a great band " - Metal Sanaz

"Eban Crawford"

"Doing an independent music podcast, I come across a lot of bands. Many are OK or good even, but don't posses that "IT' that makes a great band.

To be a great rock band takes tons of passion, drive, and talent, to pull this off acoustically takes a hundred fold of those qualities.

Waiting for Decay pulls this off without breaking a sweat. This is one of the best and most fresh sounding bands I have heard in quite a while. They possess the "IT", the ingredient that great bands are made of.

I predict nothing but great things for the future of Waiting for Decay!" - Reaching for Lucidity

"TSA Radio"

"Waiting for Decay is doing something that very few bands are doing right now--they back up heart-felt rock lyrics with a rich unplugged sound; they're on the cutting edge of something new and I expect that we'll see more of them in the very near future." - Mike V

"Skinnie Mag"

Featered in Skinnie Mag in two seperate issues - Skinne

"Cd Review"

Waiting for Decay are Metal in a power cut. Is that a bad thing - not in my world. This is 21st century post Nu-metal with a twist - this is acoustic baby! So is it Metal or is it blues? The driving guitar and bass, despite being acoustic, coupled with hard vocals in Mask or Face are definitely so, but have the flavour of an unplugged session. Tracks like Muddy Water move away from the Metal sound and move towards a Southern Blues/Rock sound, whilst still retaining a Metal current running through it. The final track on the album, Last Call, has a Spanish/Latino flavour thrown in to the guitar sound adding yet another level to the depth of this already diverse album. With a blues and bluegrass undertone, Waiting for Decay fuse a distinct mix of laid-back melancholy of the Deep South, with a hard, grungy, Metal workhorse dragging it's lazy carcass out of the muddy riverbanks and kicking it's ass into gear. Definitely one for the Metal and Hard Rock fans, but easily accessible for music fans who aren't so accepting of raucous ear assaults. Arena for the Unwell has the unmistakable first album sound, with simple, yet effective production, giving the album a raw unpolished beauty, which retains the untempered energy and multi faceted influence of a broad spectrum of genres. I only hope their second album retains these elements and isn't washed away by ambitious, money driven commercial production teams, who just don't get where they are coming from!

"Music Connection Critique's WFD 2009"

Music Critique from Music Connection Magazine (Issue Feb. 1 2009)

Waiting for Decay have forged what could be termed “acoustic metal”. Inspired by Alice in Chains and Soundgareden, the band seems to be holding its muscle in reserve. Singer Dewayne Clifton embodies the strong-yet-tortured-soul persona that is the hallmark of this genre. The bands organic, brooding approach will please some metelers, but not those who demand more snarl and shrapnel from the music. Still, W4D have put together a sharp, clear pristine production that could attract interest from film/TV scouts. - Music Connection Magazine
