Pandemia - _Dance In Vicious Circle_
by: Paul Schwarz (3 out of 5)
Pandemia have produced quite a decent demo. The music is mostly unpretentious death metal with a pretty standard "brooding" intro -- however, Pandemia close the demo with an interesting song, mixing acoustic guitar with death metal drums. With production there are two things which can go wrong with brutal death metal demos: it is too muddy and almost indistinguishable (not Pandemia's problem) or the instruments have not been meshed together enough and the overall sound is weak (Pandemia's problem). Pandemia have taken a good shot at producing good brutal death metal, but on _Dance In Vicious Circle_ they have missed the mark. With time and practice, some of Pandemia's interesting twinges (the use of acoustics and decipherable basslines, for example) could give them the edge they need to make a name for themselves, but until then they will remain where they are.
