Infestus are a band from Spain that plays a very dark and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 compilation "Origen" which was released by Xtreem Music and consists of their 1992 "Unnatural Legacy" 1994 "Atmosfera De Asfixia" and 2015 "Origen" demos.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the compilation along with some deep death metal growls a few seconds later while the solos and leads are very dark and chaotic sounding and when the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard and you can also hear a touch of grindcore in the bands musical style.
Throughout the compilation you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music is on the demos sound very brutal for the era they where recorded and some of the riffing also brings in a small amount of dark sounding melodies and the second demo had a more raw feeling along with a brief synth intro before going into more of a brutal direction which also shows high pitched screams being added into the music at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads on the 2015 demo get more melodic and a couple of instrumentals also adds in a brief use of acoustic guitars .
Infestus played a style of death metal on the early demo's that was very brutal and underrated for its time while the newer material shows a more melodic side, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Spanish and cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Infestus are a very great sounding dark and brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unnatural Legacy" "Madera Muerta" "Immolacion" and "Fauna Inerte". 8 out of 10.
