U.D.O. are the epitome of German metal! The band around iconic vocalist Udo Dirkschneider (ex-Accept) "Decadent". Once again U.D.O. combines powerful, traditional heavy metal with an up-to-date sound. Following 2013's "Steelhammer" album, "Decadent" surprisingly raises the bar by another notch and became one of U.D.O.'s finest works ever. The album was produced by Udo Dirkschneider and Mattes Pfeiffer (Redhead Audio Productions, Wilhelmshaven) in collaboration with Fitty Wienhold - just like the team worked for "Steelhammer". The songs were recorded in Udo and Fitty's "Double U" studios, while Mattes' studio in Wilhelmshaven (Germany) was the place for mixing. All U.D.O. members were involved in the songwriting process. "Decadent" then finally was mastered by Jacob Hansen (a.o. Volbeat).
