(Ultimhate Records)
Disease Illusion are so new to me that I have no expectations whatsoever about what they’ll sound like. That it is death metal is clear from the first second, well it takes a short intro before it all breaks loose. There is a slight Swedish melodeath feel to the music but with a rawer edge to it. I like that edge. It makes them stand out from all the overly melodic death metal hopefuls we keep encountering. You might have noticed that I have a soft spot for Swedish melodeath and especially for bands that makes me think of early In Flames and Dark Tranquillity. Disease Illusion makes me think of earlier versions of these Swedish metal gods. I can’t help but not to like Disease Illusion. There is something so charming about their death metal that it is hard not to be positively surprised by it. Anders Ekdahl
