“Metal, nothing more nothing less” a bold statement.
Many a band claim their style of metal cannot be defined by a few words or cannot be put into “a box”…………until proven wrong.
DEEM INDEX was not afraid to lay claim to this statement as well, by just calling it “Metal, nothing more nothing less”.
With the release of their debut EP VAIN // VOID it was time for the critics to see if this bold statement could hold.
It seems DEEM INDEX was proven right. Here are some quotes about what has been said about DEEM INDEX:
From the opening track 'Nihility in Equivalence' the melodic riffing of NWOBHM bursts through. The vocal; perfectly capable Death Growls. This whole track has a great, head nodding rhythm to it. 'Pandemonium As A Virtue' has a beautiful, Heavy Metal lead riff. A thrashier pace to the drums at times. Even though the vocal is growled it just isn't sinister sounding music. The beauty of the melody just pipes it down a bit. I have a new name for the style; it's Death Metal for those that don't do Death Metal.
Black Phoenix Rising
Thrash with a pinch of Gothenburg, a dash of Glam and a slice of Death. DEEM INDEX hosts many a style, their main motto: As long as it rocks! ….. DEEM INDEX knows how to cleverly combine variable influences into one clear whole piece – Although the tracks on the EP have many differences there is still a clear line within the songs.
The five tracks featuring on DEEM INDEX’s EP VAIN // VOID shows that the band has a wide spectrum of influences. Where some critics may say that the band is still looking or can’t make up their mind, you can state that the band is not monotonous and can surprise their listeners.
