State of Decay was generally well received by critics. Metalix continued to enjoy the band's music: "Finally our favorite Irish doomsters release another brilliant work after 1995's A Web of Sorrow. In a world now dominated by nu metal (eg. Korn, Limp Bizkit, Disturbed), we can be thankful that Nuadhán continue their depressive conquest."
