\"DecodeExilia may just be the next big thing to come out of Italy and their latest record, Decode, is living proof of this. American metalheads are always looking for something fresh and new. Exilia offers up a prime example of this with Decode, providing some of the most artistic metal to come out of Milan. The lyrics of Decode are compelling and intelligent while the vocals of frontwoman Masha Mysmane resound through the speakers leaving you breathless. Exilia bring the artistic qualities of Otep and the Italian goth-rock punch of Lacuna Coil mixed with a little Eyes Set to Kill. With Decode Exilia have really broken through and made their mark on the metal world. If their next record is anything similar or takes it to the next level, look for Exilia to really become a powerful force in the U.S. Rating: 9/10 -Reggie Edwards
