Texas quintet Desecrate the Faith serve up a very palatable tech death feast with "Unholy Infestation". Pig squeals and deep, deep gutturals abound on the album and you get lots of pinched harmonics, extremely heavy riffs and some of the best drumming I've heard in a long time on an extreme metal release. The songs have a tendency to get a bit predictable at times, with the beginning of each song usually starting with some sort of drawn-out vocal and these ridiculously heavy riffs. But despite the predictability, I found myself enjoying "Unholy Infestation" and would recommend this to those looking for a good extreme release to kick off 2017.
