"SCORN AESTHETICS" is the first full length release from French Death Metal band AD
PATRES. These guys have only been around for a few years in the Death Metal scene,
but have been quickly building fans in their home country and the rest of the world.
KAOTOXIN RECORDS are going to be responsible for them getting bigger by releasing
this album. AD PATRES may have only been around since 2008, but the band members
have been in the scene for a long time. Drummer Alsvid has been in a ton of bands, mostly
Black Metal for close to twenty years now. Forming the legendary French Black Metal
band SETH & playing in bands such as ENTHRONED & FORNICATION. Alsvid has
left his Black Metal roots behind and has taken a new direction with AD PATRES. They
play a more straight forward intense and aggressive style of Death metal music. The music
has a strong old school style of Death Metal mixed with a bit more Modern European
Death Metal sound. The intensity and brutality of the band takes you back to the
beginning days of American Death Metal, while the technicalness of their sound reminds
me of Modern European Death Metal. The vocals are done in a mid ranged Death growl
style with some slightly groggier Death screams mixed in at times. These guys are
definitely a power house and will surely leave their mark on the Death Metal scene.
