Epidemic - Earth Penitentiary (CD)

Earth Penitentiary

EPIDEMIC is a common name in the Metal world, including the song from SLAYER 'till the Thrashers of Greece heavily influenced by KREATOR, an ancient Thrash/Death Brazilian band or the most known Californian Deathsters that had released three albums in the past. These young guys from Israel, with this second demo, offer us music with a plethora of influences that in most times confused me a lot in order to describe their sound to you.
They started in 2001 and the first demo appeared in 2005, named Evil Against Evil. The release I am going to present you is their second one, that appeared in 2006 containing of four tracks. The first one, Carcinoma, is into Death Metal sounds heavy-influenced by DEATH, besides they dedicate it to Chuck's tragic death 'cause of the carcinoma in his brain. Very nice Death-ly vocals with a part in the ending remind me a lot of PESTILENCE, especially for its keys. The Six Years Old song has many good ideas inside, with clean vocals this time. The variety of their sound is more clear in For What?, whose technical structure has inside some VOIVOD passages, some DEATH or even ACID DRINKERS ones. The last song is instrumental with some nice 'introduction' guitar riffs.
After that demo and in December of 2006 they unleashed a single, named The Man That Kills Himself, with the self-titled song being more progressive than the others, including parts from Grind 'till Crossover and the other one (untitled) being something like an Arabian ballad that I cannot listen to it, sorry! During the previous year they also re-recorded a song from the first demo, Then, that has major guitar air and vibrations from MEGADETH.
A cool band with well-worked songs that are not something like a puzzle of riffing not sticking well together, but - on the other hand - I believe they must focus more on their songs, making them having their own personality. I'm really curious for their future releases.
