Degenerate: With a modern thrash/death metal hybrid

Degenerate - Devastation Ahead

Degenerate is a metal band form The Netherlands. Thrash and melodic influences and shredding guitar solos, powerful leads and tight drums since 2016. The band`s new album is entitled Devastion Ahead and here the title track,

Degenerate is a collaboration between Dutch musicians, Rens Hilgers – Vocals and guitars, Daniel Ruiz – Guitars, Filip A. Filipczuk – Bass and Bas Bloos – Drums. They who all share a big history in the Dutch metal scene. The title track Devastion Ahead,

Frontman Rens Hilgers formed the band in early 2016 with a vision to unleash a modern thrash/death metal hybrid. In that same year Rens Hilgers teamed up with drummer Melle Kramer to produce their first demo EP. Not only fans where positive by the 2016 release, also the international media publishes some decent writeup’s about the bands release. After the great response, Rens Hilgers went looking for suitable musicians to bring the music to the stage. The track Recondite Radiation,

Hilgers states, «Because of my years of experience in the Dutch metal scene, I met a lot of good and competent musicians. Unfortunately, I never felt that they were suitable for the project that I had in mind. After I met these guys, I immediately knew that I found the right line-up for the job. The technical and ferocious skills of these guys do raise the songs and writing to a level that I did not even dare to dream of»

With this current line-up they played numerous shows in venues all over The Netherlands with bands like Distillator and Acid Drinkers.After the release of the band’s first Demo EP in 2016 the name Degenerate has grown fast in the Dutch metal scene and became known for their energetic live performances and good songwriting.

The special combination of challenging guitar riffs, technical drumming, melancholic guitar leads and solo’s creates a sound of yesteryear and will bring back memories of 80’s style thrash metal, without excluding modern metal heads. Degenerate’s music will probably appeal to fans of Max Cavalera-era Sepultura, Children Of Bodom, Death and Testament.

On October 4th 2019 they released the first single X-Ray Annihilatio from their upcoming full-length album Devastation Ahead, mixed and mastered by Mendel Bij De Leij (ex-Aborted).

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4072 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
