Italy's Bloodevil deliver a punishing blend of metalcore and thrash with their sophomore album. With a battery of traditional thrash riffing, heavy breakdowns and a mix of clean/death vocals, Infection is a galloping and grooving metallic jaunt from start to finish. The only detractor to the album is that the song intros tend to be a touch lengthy on the instrumental lead in more than I'd like. Sometimes it's a minute or more before the vocals kick in. This is still a damn good offering and another example of how the thrash is melding other genres together to create a familiar yet newer style that makes you want to pump your fist in defiance.
