Infestus/E_x_I_s_t/Debembur Morti Productions/2011 CD Review

Infestus are a one man project from Germany that plays a very dark and experimental form of black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "E_x_I_s_t" which will be released by Debember Morti Productions.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats, while the synths when they are utilized bring a very dark ambient feel to the music and at times it has a very weird and unholy sound to it, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone which is kind of mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slw, midpaced to fast black metal riffs that have a melodic edge at times with alot of weird sounding distortion and on one song there is some thrash style riffing, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding black metal guitar solos that are also very dark in sound, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use alot of finger picking to give the music a more ancient sound.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls, while the lyrics cover Darkness, nocturnal woods, and spiritual abyss with one song being written in the German language, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy and raw feel to it.

In my opinion Infesstus a re avery good and original modern day sounding black metal band and iy you are looking for something different, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Down Spiral Depersonifacation" "Mirror Mond Reality" and "Descend Direction Void". RECOMMENDED BUY.
