"CONGRESS OF THE INSANE"
IZEGRIM is a killer Death / Thrash Metal band from The Netherlands. IZEGRIM formed
back in 1996 and has been crushing it ever since. This band combines to of my favorite
styles of music together and do it better than just about everyone else out there. The music
is a perfect blend of Death Metal and Thrash Metal music. It's that early sound of when
Thrash Metal was starting to morph into Death metal music in the late '80's and early '90's.
The music is ultra tight and super fast and extremely aggressive sounding all through out.
There is a killer fast paced chugging groove in the guitar sound that has a Thrash Metal
feel, but is played in a Death Metal way. The music is very well thought out and has a lot
of depth and levels. The drums tend to have a harder more blasting feel to them that pushes
them into a more Death Metal feel. The vocals are done in a mid paced harsh and
aggressive Thrash / Death Metal crossover style that reminded me a lot of KREATOR. I
absolutely love this band. When I had my band FAMILY OF FREAKS back in the mid
'90's, This is the type of band I really hope to have achieved to be, not that I knew of
IZEGRIM back then, but this is how I would have love for our band to turn out to be. This
is an absolute must for fans of SLAYER, KREATOR, ARCH ENEMY, CARCASS &
EXHUMED. IZEGRIM is an amazing band in every aspect, from their musicianship, song
writing and over all performance. I would love to see these guys in concert some day!
Every Metal fan must, must, must check out this incredible band!
