The Undivine – Delusional Noise

Band: The Undivine
Album: Delusional Noise
Release date: April 2012
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Label: Inverse Records

‘Delusional Noise’ is the second album from the Finnish extreme metal band The Undivine. The album is said to be a mix of death metal and tribal grooves all centered around the overall theme of mental illness.

The opening track ‘Columbian tie’ features a good guitar intro. Then the melodeath-style vocals kick in and with them come the melodic death metal style drums. Comparisons to The Crown spring to mind though this is nowhere near as original. The drums and tribal grooves on tracks such as ‘Satelite Monarchy’ and the title track bear a strong resemblance towards Soulfly. Come to think of it, even the vocals are similar!

There’s also hints of old Entombed and ‘Arise’ or ‘Beneath the Remains’-era Sepultura evident on tracks like ‘Till The Dreads Come Home’ and ‘One Step to Parabellum’ which feature the characteristic guitar riffs, death metal drums and vocals. One song which stands out is the melodic death metal ballad ‘Seduction’ which contains a pleasant-sounding, acoustic-style guitar interlude. Then there’s the fast and furious ‘Landmine Marathon’ which lives up to its name, taking no prisoners as it bulldozes its way through your eardrums.

The album isn’t without its surprises though, for example ‘Balisong Flip’ contains elements of aggressive, Behemoth-style blackened death metal. Overall this is a decent melodic death metal album which is likely to appeal to fans of old Entombed and Soulfly.

3/5
