INFECTED DEAD Archanic Malevolence Hothttps://arcticmetal.no/media/reviews/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/94/6d/84/infecteddead-70-1512632132.jpg
Infected Dead is a technical death metal band, heading from the rotten shores of the River Medway in Kent, UK, and ‘Archanic Malevolence’ is their debut album. Consisting of only six tracks including an intro and a play time of 27 minutes it’s probably more correct to define it as an EP rather than a full album. The material is both complex in structure and brutal, but yet both catchy and melodic and shows really great musicianship.
On the vocal side both traditional death growls and harsh screaming vocals are used, unfortunately with the latter of those as the more dominant one. It’s of course a matter of taste, but I’m normally not a fan of that kind of screaming vocals. With that said I must add that I really enjoy this album because of its excellent song material, arrangements and razor sharp production. Fans of bans like Aborted, The Faceless and The Black Dahlia Murder should definitely check out this one. Thumbs up for the epic cover artwork as well.
