DISEIM (Latvia) “Holy Wrath” CD review

by Valkyrian Music

By Luke Hayhurst

Having been active since 2007, Diseim have had plenty of time to rehearse, perfect and record their sound. It took a little while to get their completed line up but once that was done they set about performing locally and tinkering with the bands dynamics. featuring quick paced drum beats, grinding guitars and poignant growling vocals, Diseim come armed with a dark sinister sound that has been moulded and crafted into a debut album entitled ‘Holy Wrath’. What I like about Diseim is that despite their heavy ominous sound, vast ranging breakdowns and deathly sensibilities, their vocal style is very audible and the lyrics easy to understand. indeed all of these points make their brand of blackened thrash very easy to digest and immensely catchy.

In ‘Pyromania’ you get a glimpse into the bands deepest darkest secrets, a shout out to all that is evil, brooding and sinister lurking in the darkness. Yet it is ‘Sinner’ that really pushes the boundaries of Diseims brutality and malicious nature. a slower paced track, ‘Sinner’ grinds down your senses into submission with venomous vocal work, crushing killer riffs and sledgehammer like drum beats. ‘Insanity’ is simply that, tremendously catchy and with some enormous breakdowns whilst ‘Son Of The Winter’ brings a Black Metal element into play as well as the Blackened Thrash the band usually play so well. Through the ever changeable but always grinding ‘Witch’ and into the finale of ‘Agony’, Diseim have produced eight quality blackened tracks of an evil nature and ill purpose. For a debut release this is strong, powerful and malicious, as well as being well worth your attention.
