Hailing from Germany, INFESTING SWARM have been quietly and patiently perfecting their craft for the past eight years, waiting for the right moment to unveil their momentous creation. At last, it is here, and the band's debut album swells and surges with a glorious melancholy without losing its metallic might. Very aptly titled, Desolation Road deftly combines achingly melodic doom-death with emotive-yet-poisonous black metal, each of its eight epic tracks travelling down different corridors of the soul. But at its core, INFESTING SWARM's Desolation Road is a METAL record: not your standard "post-black metal" where the latter (and most important) element is an afterthought at best, the aggression is kept to a maximum while the peripheral, non-metal elements are maximized without overtaking the central, black metalled thrust. Thus, Desolation Road is an album that both ably walks the line between traditionalism and progression, triumph and tragedy.
