Fans of 80's thrash/speed/black/death metal will revel in the
sounds the permeate through the upcoming release Subjected
from Italian metal band Illogicist. Featuring plenty of intricate
guitar work and dual harmonies that even might pull in the
prog-metal crowd, Illogicist lay down powerful songs like
"Knowledge Curse" and "Dissonant Perspective" that are chock full
of heavy riffs and catchy melodies. Blazing double bass drums meet
complex riff-o-rama on the angular title track, a tune that also is
highlighted by Luca Minieri's screeching rasps, which may not be
for every listener, but seem to fit the music here. The band even
throws in a short but tricky instrumental titled "Introspection"
that shows just how good these players really are.
