Damn... Yet another new Thrash band, and this one is pretty kickass. The first impression is: "Slayer worship" – minus the whole satanic subject matter, Invection leaning more toward life, death and society for their lyrical content. These guys nail the late 80s Slayer style pretty good – at least the riffage is very reminiscent of that period – and they also mix in a little bit of crossover and some cleaner Bay Area style Thrash to their material. The vocal style is like the bastard child of Slayer and crossover, and I find it gets a bit getting used to – personally I'm still working on that.
Musically there's nothing too fancy here – just plain old classic-style Thrash that punches you in the face like a high school bully. "Two Faced Lie" is bound to be quite a hit on the live stage, with vocal lines that just beg for the frontman to get the crowd shouting the lines, and headbanging/moshing like maniacs in between. The solos can get pretty demented (I especially like what's going on in the song "Invection"), the riffs are especially catchy at times, and coupled with the simple yet effective vocal lines ensure that most of this stuff sticks in your mind long after listening – something more bands should try to do, really. Demented Perception is simple but very effective Thrash that is unfortunately a bit short (such is the nature of an EP.) They're now signed to Stormspell Records, which gives hope for an upcoming full-length.
