Illdisposed released “1-800 Vindication” two years ago, it was a
massive leap forward for the Danes. It was a groovy death monster like
none other. Luckily “Burn Me Wicked” is a continuation of its
predecessor’s monstrosity, only with a darker twist.
mixture of old-school death metal with samples hits right on the spot
again, and Bo Summer’s subwoofer vocals as well as his more black
metal inspired screams compliment the down-tuned groove perfectly.
Mikkel Sandager from Mercenary has also been added as a lighter touch on
the vocal side on a few of songs, and it fits nicely into the whole
picture. He’s given a lot of room on “Nothing To Fear…Do It”,
giving the tune an air of a twisted sort of progressive metal.
darker twist I mentioned before possibly needs some explanation; the
sound on “Burn Me Wicked” is more evil than on any of
Illdisposed’s previous releases. Take for example "Back To The Streets”
or “Throw Your Bolts” – there is very little humour in the sound.
The guitar sound is relentless on the album, gritty and cold. Although
you find it possible, Summer has also managed to sound more scare than
he usually does – especially on the track “Slave” he’s downright
creepy. Good stuff.
unbeatable Illdisposed humour only really sets in when the quartet
launches into the mad “Illdispunk’d” – three verses, one in
Danish, one in German, one in English and a death metal version of Dead
Kennedys. The boys are back and they are nuts. Thanks very much.
