Infuriate - Disconnected
Infuriate has been active since 2001 under the name Necropolis and released one demo under that name. This year brings us a new demo, called Disconnected. These death/thrash guys are all good friends of mine, and I’ve even played together with them with my band once. But I won't let that change my judgement!
 
The simple fact is that I’ve seen good shows and bad shows of this band. Not always entirely in their hands though, but still, I think I have a pretty good idea of what they’re capable of. This is reasonably represented on their demo Disconnected. As I said, it consists of grooving thrash and death metal, blastbeats excluded. Some good songwriting can be detected on this demo, unfortunately due to the recording/mixing it takes some time to figure out what’s going on, especially in the faster parts. But the first thing that stands out, is also the most important, groove.
 
One of the band’s strongest assets is vocalist Remco, this guy is able to apply a whole lot of different things with his voice. Screams, grunts, and roars in all kinds of different levels. Weird thing is that on this recording he has a kind of tough guy hardcore roar that I’ve never heard coming out of him before. I also have to mention that right before the recording of this demo, the other vocalist quit so this forced Remco to fill those gaps as well. And he did that pretty good.

One of the weaker points might be the drumming. It’s not tight nor innovative, it just suits the music. A thing that irritates me though is the hi-hat and cymbal department, it’s way too apparent in the music, it’s too loud in the mix which makes it get on your nerves.
 
So the message gets across, but it’s not the next big thing in Dutch death metal. The thing they did with this demo is prove what Infuriate stands for and what they sound like. Now we only can wait and see where this demo might take them. I wish them good luck!

By the way, the demo is not for sale but just to give away. Also all the tracks are downloadable on their website, so be sure to check that out.
