Infectious Hate are a band from France that plays a mixture of death and groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Insanity Begins".
The ep starts out with a very fast, heavy and brutal sound along with some growls and groove metal elements in the mid paced sections as well as a small amount of blast beats before the groove parts take over.
When the ep goes to other songs the band sticks to mostly a mid paced death/groove metal direction as well as bringing in a small amount of melody and speeding up to a brutal sound in certain sections of the music as well as all of the musical instruments having a powerful sound to them along with a mixture of screams and growls which also leads to to some guitar solos and on one of the songs there are spoken word samples.
With this ep Infectious Hate take a brutal form of death metal and mix it in with groove metal and melody to create a very heavy recording that does not rely on excessive speed or plenty of blast beats while still proving that you can still be brutal with mostly mid paced sections.
Song lyrics cover dark and hateful themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep.
In my opinion Infectious Hate are a very great sounding mixture of death and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Insanity Begins" and "Corroded By Time". 8 out of 10.
