Commented DESCENDING: "In 'New Death Celebrity', symbolism, is being the protagonist in all the aspects of this creation, from the lyrics to the music and the artwork. Even the way it produced and mixed served a specific purpose, so nothing is accidental, as all the elements fulfill the bigger idea."
According to a press release, DESCENDING combines "both bombastic aggressive metal riffage and melodic hook lines in their songs. Their debut album 'Enter Annihilation' [shakes] the foundations of modern metal community! This modern metal masterpiece features astonishing belting vocals by Jon Simvonis giving a deadly touch with his wide range of vocal palette, from deep growls-to ecstatic emotional screams. Also blazing rhythm/lead guitar work by a new guitar hero Constantine (ex-NIGHTRAGE) who combines his fast and furious solo pyrotechnics along with his strong melodic phrasing giving to the album a unique flavour of his own shredcore fashion."
