Surprisingly, I find myself somewhat enjoying this album. This is extreme music alright! I'm not sure if they have a new vocalist on crew, but in any cases, this guy (Cristiano Alexandre) has one heck of a sick, wicked and beastie set of vocal chords.

It must not be that easy to come up with this music, since you don't really have a melodic line or a rhythm to go by. That's right, no rhythm guitar on this album, just lead work done either by means of tremolo picking or insane lead shredding. You do have some occasional riffing in the process though. As for the bass lines, they are of a progressive and syncopated nature, while the pummeling skin beating is simply unstoppable. What do you get when adding all this? Brutal/technical Death Metal with a progressive touch and a minimalist melodic factor. Variation is something that has been ruled out from the beginning of their career, so if you don't like the first track, just forget it. The only little bit of variation is found in the intro of opening track "Unearthly Menace" and on "Gate to Alien Dimension". There you'll hear ambient keyboards, war samplings, plus great demonic/beastie vocals.

All in all, Interplanar Decimation is Infested Blood's best work so far, without making me a fan of their work still.
