The name Disaffected seem familiar but I can’t say for sure if I got them confused with another band or if I’ve read about/heard of them previously. Don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or because I get subjected to so much music that certain bands tend to fall of my radar. Disaffected are being described as modern heavy metal (that phrase again) which really doesn’t say too much. Fear Factory were modern metal when they first appeared on the metal scene. It’s a bit like the Emperor’s new clothes. You can call it what you want but any which way you look your nose is ahead of you. But Fear Factory might not be a too shabby reference point. There is that techno (as in technology) side to Disaffected. Like if some Star Trek nerds wanted to form a metal band. While not being anywhere near the catchy tech feel that Fear Factory had this is a times borderline good thrash spliced with some tingly tangly tech/industrial splashes. Maybe not the most fun I’ve had lately. Anders Ekdahl
