Buried treasure disinterred from the hoary wastes of Seattle, Washington, INFESTER was a short-lived project featuring several future members of The Meat Shits. To The Depths, In Degradation was their only full-length album, and is truly a rare and remarkably tasty find for friends of evil, guttural, cult DM. Similar in spirit to "outsider" grind like Impetigo or Embalmer, Infester mix heaping portions of doom, barfy vocals, sputtering stop-go blastbeats, and even the odd organ riff into their heady cauldron of deathly suffering, creating a swirling maelstrom of all things chunky, sticky, and gross. This is not for fans of clean production, gravity blasts, sweep-picked arpeggios, or clean-vocal breakdowns. This is pure evil, and it is delicious.
Did I mention that I discovered Infester via a little website called Last.FM? Because I did, and through the suggestion of several friends of the blog, I've finally created an IllCon Last.FM account. Come visit us HERE!
