"COLD BLOOD WAR"
INFEST is a Death / Thrash Metal band hailing from Serbia. These guys started out back
in 2002 and have been tearing up the scene in their country and worldwide ever since.
"COLD BLOOD WAR" is the bands fourth full length album to date. These guys take
things back to the old school to the days when Death and Thrash Metal were merging
together. They take a little bit of influences from the Swedish and the American Death
Metal scenes from the early 90's. Especially the Floridian Metal scene. They blend the
two genres together better than most that came before them. The guitars is the very
obvious place that most of the Thrash Metal elements are present. I love the way they
have that high intense shredding sound and mix in some of that grooved out Thrash vibe
as well. The Death Metal comes into play mostly in the drumming style. It was super
tight and fast paced past with some grooved out parts mixed in. The vocals are done in a
gritty and groggy Death growl style, but is clear enough for you to be able to understand
it still. If you were to combine early ENTOMBED, GRAVE, VADER, SINISTER &
AGGRESSOR with TESTAMENT ("THE GATHERING" era), SEPULTURA
("ARISE" era), DARK ANGEL, MERCILESS & MASTER you would get a great idea
of how amazingly good this band is. In other words go get this album! You won't be
disappointed! "Kill Their Weakness", "Demonic Wrath" & title track "Cold Blood War"
are some of the stand out tracks!!!
