I received an email from Boue Records informing me about this release about half an year ago, but then I had to many demos waiting for a review, so I decided to post this one a little later. Ives' side of this split is actually a re-release of their debut, "Burial of the Modernized Soulless", but with much better quality of production. As for Amort, they're a band from Seattle playing very slow funeral doom (nothing similar to Ives). Personally I think "In Bed With Decay" can hardly be called metal, but fans of dark ambient/drone will probably like it. The whole split is available for streaming @ bandcamp, and according to Boue Records, it's also free to distribute ("we don't have copyright shit").

P.S. Looks like Ives have released a single called "Ugliness and Its Proud Bearer" in late 2011, but I couldn't find it anywhere (and I wasn't that impressed by what I found on youtube). Anyway, if you have listened to it, feel free to share your impressions.
