Infecting The Swarm are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very brutal and slamming form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Abyss" which was released by Lacerated Enemy Records.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some guttural death metal growls a few seconds later and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and after awhile elements of slam are added onto the recording.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs also bring in a great amount of brutality and none of the songs ever use any guitar solos and leads while some of the riffing gets technical at times and the whole album remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Infecting The Swarm creates another recording that remains true to the brutal and slamming style of death metal from the previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Infecting the Swarm and if you are a fan of brutal, slamming death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Entropy" "Innate Divinity" "Obscuring The Seventh Sun" and "Descension". 8 out of 10.
