Illucinoma: Demo 2011

07/07/11  ||  Lord K Philipson

Claiming to combine “elements from modern technical metal, with the mix of poly-rhythms, broken musical frames, aggressive vocals and the occasional melancholic melody”, these Dutch fuckos sure seem to be on to something. There are some quite impressive skills involved and this demo isn’t completely half-assed. The core of it would be technical (death) metal with the occasional Meshuggah-influence popping up, further proving that Meshuggah can’t be touched in the technical department. For being a demo this is quite impressive and given the chance and decent studio budget – Illucinoma might create yet another recording that I’d give a shit about. I’m looking forward to it.

7/10: Lots of promise here.
