Album Notes
The words “I Decline” represent a middle finger to the mediocrity in the world of modern hard rock music. Fusing this creed with the attitude of Punk, riff-laden hooks of Classic and Stoner Rock, and the fury of Heavy Metal, I Decline crafts its own hybrid of hard-edged music.

“I Decline are Chicago super rockers who just might be the first band to successfully channel the glorious, delirious warmth of Thin Lizzy’s dual guitar attack and gentleman rogue charm and drop it, friendly fire style, right into the sprawling desert of acid freak dope metal.” - Sleazegrinder.com

Mixed by Tadpole of Groovemaster Studio (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, Adelitas Way), Horns Raised Records is proud to present I Decline’s third full-length, Time To Shine. Touching upon mortality, desolation, and broken relationships, Time To Shine is a metaphor to the aftermath of 9/11 and the personal struggles we face as humans in this chaotic world. A bombastic onslaught of fist in the air anthems for a blue-collar society, I Decline searches for new hope with Time To Shine.

Recently supporting Relapse artists Toxic Holocaust, I Decline is set to release Time To Shine with an intimate performance on July 30th, 2011 at Reggies as an after party for metal icons Corrrosion Of Conformity. For more information, promo requests or to set up an interview,

Album Review - I Decline ' Time To Shine' ( Horns Raised Records)
'Time To Shine' is packed to the gills with big hearted, bombastic and at times unashamedly OTT rock anthems.The band's sound is a slightly bizarre blend of tar thick stoner rock riffing, old school heavy metal lead work and fists aloft, stadium swagger, mostly contained in the lung bursting vocal pairing of main vocalist Dustin Hamish, and bassist/vocalist Patrick Mc Laughlin. It's the sort of rock album that bands like The Darkness and Avenged Sevenfold would give their collective left testicles to make ,putting in mind influences from everything from the dark glam rumblings of WASP and Skid Row to Mob Rules-era Sabbath to Thin Lizzy at their heaviest( fans of'Thunder and Lightning' era Lizzy won't be disappointed).

It's , and not to put too light of a spin on it, fucking MASSIVE.Guitars roar around, drums thump you in gut and bass tickles your nether regions, and , to be quite frank, it puts a fair majority of certain mainstream metal/rock releases out this year to shame in this respect.This , my friends, is what Phil Spector was going for  when he forged his  legendary 'wall of sound'.

I Decline – Time To Shine (Horns Raised Records) http://www.hellridemusicforums
"There’re some cleaver sharp songs and hooks here, and despite all of the modern cadences, they still know how to write more than a handful of great songs, and let the gritty riffs, melodies, harmonious vocals of Dustin Harnish and blazing twin guitar antics punch through. The immaculate artwork/packaging (featuring illustrations by the prolific Tom Denney) is also well-worth a look and a total throwback to all of the old school metal artwork. Time To Shine is a good album with enough to come back to, making it of interest to fans of bands like Priestess, Red Fang, Bible of the Devil, later Down, and Early Man (though their sound is different than pretty much all of these bands, overall).

The Aquarian Weekly - Albums: I Decline - Time To Shine (Horns Raised)
"This album really caught me by surprise. This band is filled with talent and I know that I will be awaiting their next release...“World Burning Down” is the track that really caught my attention. The chorus is extremely catchy, the dark vocals are fiery and the guitar solos are also staggering. "

Sludgelord Blog Review - 9/18/2011
The vocals and guitar riffs are simply amazing to listen to. Production is top notch. This is definitely I DECLINE's best album to date.

I can't fault this superb album one bit. This album's a calling card to the Stoner/Doom Metal Community that I DECLINE's time to shine has came now.

One of 2011 best album's is upon us and I recommend everyone check this out. This is truly a hard-rocking stoner-riff loving head-banging masterpiece that will destroy everything in it's path.

I Decline – Time To Shine (Horns Raised Records) HAILS WEBZINE REVIEW http://ww
"Time to Shine is a lot more mainstream/radio-friendly (even though it easily kicks the shit out of today's typical radio fare, and certainly craps all over the Top 40) than most of what comes my way through HAILS, and while the disc isn't one as outstanding or charismatic as those churned out by many of the band's influences, it's still a prideful effort that's sure to eventually win I DECLINE quite a bit of acclaim, and frankly I'm surprised that so far it hasn't drawn in more of a response; the production is just fantastic, and even the less riveting moments are nowhere near horrible." - Leja Siv (HAILS WEBZINE) http://www.i-decline.com/blog/%3Cbr%20/%3Ehttp://www.myspace.com/hailswebzine/blog/544527726

I Decline is a Chicago based bunch bad ass rockers whose third album Time to Shine fills your brains with some tight ass ear candy.
This album takes me back to the 70’s and 80’s with its heavy yet catchy tunes, loaded with well mixed influences (punk, stoner rock, heavy pop,) to name a few, in fact this album is so good I can’t single out a song that I can say is my favorite or my least favorite, this album is really that good from the first song to the last it’s like a one big anthem.
The Song A New Nation is one of those songs that should be played on every radio in the country, Jerico is the most mellow of the tunes but like I said all the songs on this album rock.
The first song is the title track Time to Shine this sets off the pace for what is to be a great album.
Three words …find and buy.

I Decline - Time To Shine: Doom Mantia Review
"This CD sounds huge. The guitars are massive, drums are thunderous, and the bass sits nice and low in the mix constantly vibrating your innards…I can't find one bad song on the entire album…The mix of thick, sludgy riffing with commercial, catchy hooks is a irresistible combination and unless your brain is fried from years of listening to extreme doom, thrash, or whatever, you can't help but head-bang to this…The mutual action and reaction between the band members is stunning, not overly complex or anything but is dripping in finesse, much in the same way Lizzy was at their peak… 8/10" - http://www.doommantia.com/2011/10/i-decline-time-to-shine.html

I Decline - Time To Shine: Battle Helm Review
"Imagine a clash between thrash metal and stoner rock and you get a picture of where you find I Decline musically. On paper a mix like that might seem pretty strange but in reality it works like a charm. And so much better than anybody ever could imagine. There's a groove to 'Time To Shine' that puts it heads and shoulders above must other metal releases today." - Anders BATTLE HELM http://battlehelm.com/?p=1656

I Decline - Time To Shine: Tape To Tape September 29th, 2011
There is plenty to love on the album, ‘A New Nation’ and ‘Grand Ruin’ are the two tracks that really grab your attention, the former has an irresistible groove and boasting the kind of cross over pop/rock sound that radio should be lapping up. ‘Grand Ruin’ is reminiscent of Testament and is a huge slab of stoner rock.....

Produced and recorded by drummer John Doyle, the sound is epic, with a tour de force display of some truly impressive drumming. This never comes at the expensive of the song and ‘Time To Shine’ is the sound of a band with plenty of confidence in themselves and what they are good at. Despite their underground status this is a band reaching for the mainstream and this album should get them one step closer. - http://tapetotape.co.uk/t2t/2011/09/29/time-to-shine-i-decline/

Album Review: I Decline ' Time To Shine' October 29, 2011
"Time to Shine is wounded, weary, but hellbent on hitting back and restoring a calm breeze that's long gone. These guys are marching home with bloody limbs, pushing tainted cars over cliffs, and riding the back of a lone hawk. The band's precision is expertly crafted where many find it audacious. Anthemic and unapologetic, Time to Shine is black-belted, teeth-clenching hope seeking a break in a gray existence. Given the political, economic, and social landscape lately smacking our senses, I Decline may the answer to lighting a candle rather than cursing our darkness."
