Deem Index is from Arnhem and released their debut EP called ‘Vain // Void’. The band claims there style is metal, but some parts tend to influences from thrash, death and even some NWOBHM. Johan wrote a review about this new EP.
A strong and technical debut EP
The EP ‘Vain // Void’ starts with ‘Nihility in Equivalence’ (video), a fine melodic death song to open the EP. The second song is ‘Pandemonium as a Virtue’, a great heavy metal sound mixed with some death and trash. ‘Hybernesia’ is the third song on the EP and you can hear they use a lot of different styles, though the sound stays a bit the same. Musical originality and variaties of sound could have been better. But considering this is their first EP, ‘Deem Index’ set a strong and technical debut EP and shows they are home to many different styles in metal music.
Though the band may consider to re-define their sound a bit, so the music comes better to rights. Still Deem Index is perfectly capable of delivering a strong EP that you are going to love if you’re a death metal fan.
