From the mind of Germany’s black metal genius Andras comes "Thrypsis", the newest full-length record of INFESTUS.
A deeply personal exploration of the cathartic function found in pain, "Thrypsis" effortlessly weaves tortured dissonance with melodic sensibility.
Thrashing blackened rhythms intermingle with saccharine leads and solos as moody piano dirges, vitriolic screams and crushing death metal motifs intersperse the symphony found in a man’s last desperate breath. Vicious and absurdist, "Thrypsis" is a one of a kind album that refuses to be easily defined.

Blackened Death album with lots of well integrated Prog and Tech elements. Usually I'm not too deep into more extreme metal, but on this record every song is memorable and - while being brutal - also catchy, accessible and simply fun. Spectacular! FlashMuc
