Disaffected are a band from Portugal that plays a very atmospheric form of technical death/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Rebirth" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the synths bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with progressive riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast progressive/technical death/thrash riffs that utilize a great amount of melody, talent and skill with some soft and clean playing being utilized at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add a variety of many different influences from many different musical genres.
Vocals range from death/thrash style screams and growls as well as some spoken word parts, samples, male and female clean signing, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Disaffected are a very great sounding progressive and technical atmospheric death/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Getting Into The Labyrinth" "Evilution Within" "Hypnotic Prophecy" and "The Rebirth Of". RECOMMENDED BUY.
