DISSORTED – I EP review




 DISSORTED – I EP
Independent
DISSORTED were found in Munich Germany back in 2004 and recently they have recorded their first 5 track EP which carries the indicative title “I”. I think that this is a good choice for the band in order to introduce themselves to the audience and in their effort to find a deal with a label. After all it has proven that less is more.
THE COVER: Well, it is quite minimalistic and I think it proves the attitude of the band which is straight to the point. The cover has a grey fond and upon it you can see the name of the band and the title “I”. It might not be something great but it does its job.
MUSICAL STYLE: DISSORTED might be from Germany, but their sound is mostly oriented in the U.S. metal sound. Specifically, they play thrash metal that is mostly influenced by the bay area thrash metal scene and such bands like ANTHRAX, EXODUS, TESTAMENT and SLAYER. In my opinion they also have some resemblances to the great German thrash metal band PARADOX.
COMPOSITIONS: The 5 compositions that DISSORTED have included here are faithful to the thrash metal sound that the bands serves, which means that you listen to fast compositions with sharp riffs, some melodic leads and of course solos. All the compositions that are included here are well composed and reflect the passion of the band and its imagination. My favorite songs though are: “Bloodshed Divine”, “Eaten Alive” and “Operation Observation”. The other 2 tracks are also good, though the above ones are my personal favorites.
 CONCLUSION: DISSORDER in their first official studio release offer us a thrash metal sound that is rooted in the 80’s, but also has a fresh and modern production. They prove they are efficient and talented as musicians to deliver some very good thrash metal compositions and their EP can satisfy even the most demanding of the thrash metal fans. I strongly believe that if they continue on the same way as with this EP, then the future belongs to them.
