INSIDIOUS DISEASE was formed in late 2004 by:
Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir)
Jardar (Old Man’s Child)
Tony Laureano (Angelcorpse, Nile)
Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Brujeria, Lock Up)
Marc Grewe (of former German death metal cult act Morgoth)
The idea for this band dates back several years ago, as Silenoz and Jardar kept talking about joining forces again. They both quit the death metal outfit Malefic back in ’92 to go on forming Dimmu Borgir and Old Man’s Child respectively, but never lost the urge to play brutal music together. Things did not really get down to business until late 2004 when Tony showed interest in doing the drums for the band and finally the sleeping beast awakened from its slumber, songs were completed and the first rehearsals took place.
After already successfully playing the prestigious Wacken Open Air in 2009 as an unsigned band, now, the long awaited debut album entitled “Shadowcast” is ready to be unleashed!
Musically, lyrically and visually “Shadowcast” is one hell of a ride down to the core of honest, brutal and violent death metal at its very best, and “of corpse”, deadliest and should leave no fan of the genre dissatisfied. INSIDIOUS DISEASE combine the spirit of the old g(l)ory days of dark and sinister, groovy death metal with well-dosed modern twists and turns without making it sound too technical, polished and melodic. The focus is on the songs as a whole, an art way too often ignored nowadays. All of the renowned members of INSIDIOUS DISEASE have created extremely diverse and different sounds during the past years, but on “Shadowcast” each one of them shows that their concept of death metal does not differ a bit from the listener’s perspective: a true escape for everyone who appreciates devastating and bash-your-face-in heaviness glazed with a gush of blood!
