Spirit Disease - Redemption Denied
Spirit Disease is a band from Finland and have started out around 2002. Their music is described as technical death metal with thrash and grindcore influences. I’ve never even heard of this band before and wasn’t familiar with the music at all.
The first song starts out pretty wild, with a lot of freaky guitar shit and quite up tempo drum work. I must confess that it only sticks to this first song. Reading the bio, I thought there was something like grindcore involved in the music. However, I did not hear any grind influences with this album. Technical is another great word that does not apply on this band because the only rhythms I can hear are thrashy ones. Personally, I can withstand some thrash at certain times, but Spirit Disease has just overdone it. This isn’t death metal and it isn’t technical. What remains? No nonsense thrash that I’ve heard a dozen times now. There aren’t really noteworthy songs to mention, because they all resemble to each other. The only highlight on this album is the cover song of Death, called Evil Death.
What can you expect when buying this? Not much. If you like boring thrash with no feeling and occasionally a death metal riff, then you should consider buying this piece of crap. Else, don’t bother.
