Contaminated- "Pestilential Decay" Cassette (Self Released)
First Editon, 2014
Contaminated from Melbourne are a down-tuned Death Metal act of the Finnish variety. Previously a one man effort, L.M. has recently relinquished drumming responsibilities to Christoph Winkler, skinsman for various current and previous Melbourne Grindcore groups. Obvious lineage could be drawn back to bands of the late 80's and early 90's like Abhorrence and Demi God, and in the context of the majority of the more hardcore orientated stuff covered on this blog, very obvious comparisons could be made to Boston's Innumerable Forms. Fans of that band would surely find something to enjoy about Contaminated. Heavy, slow, guttural Death Metal, peppered with blasts beats. This is the bands debut release. Four ungodly cuts in under 20 minutes or so. More stuff to follow soon I have heard.
