Infiltrator is crunchy speed/trash riffs, intricate shredding solos, and catchy songs. The original Infiltrator Demo has now gotten a massive upgrade, and has been turned into a fullblown EP. The two songs from the demo, "Hell Ripper" and "Crush the False", has been re-recorded by the new Infiltrator lineup. A new song "Hordes of Hades (Deathbangers)" has been added, plus the ripping cover of Bathory's Sacrifice originally released Feb 17, where Quorthon would have turned 47. The only downgrade is the EP art; there is none, so I'm using the artwork from the Sacrifice release.
Infiltrator as a full band is joy to listen to. Guitars and vocals are still by Steve Jansson off course; and they are still terrific, and appropriately shreddy and raw. The drummer is Grzesiek Czapla, former Infernal Stronghold sticksman, current Woe bassist and second vocalist. The bass is now handled by Chris Grigg of Woe fame, who also has a hand in the very natural sounding production, I mean check out that drum sound. In fact check out the original Demo too, to see how much difference a full lineup and a better production job can do to a couple of good songs.
