Disguise/Second Coming/My Kingdom Music/2012 CD Review


  Disguise are a band from Italy that mixes 90's style Swedish black metal with death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Second Coming" which was released by My Kingdom Music.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths when they are utilized they bring an atmospheric and somewhat of an industrial edge to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine 90's style Swedish black metal with death metal mixed in with some riffing that utilizes a lot of skill and melody as well as a black'n'roll and modern metal edge while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are a mixture of grim sounding and hateful black metal screams mixed in with some deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover apocalyptic themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and professional sound to it.

In my opinion Disguise are very good sounding black metal/black'n'roll/death metal hybrid with a modern edge and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I Am Alone" "Repressed Rage" and "Claustrophobic Rage". RECOMMENDED BUY.
