Demented Perception

Rated 4/5 (80%) (9 Votes)

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.
