Two years have passed since Illdisposed released their highly acclaimed ”Burn Me Wicked” album. An album that showed a more experimenting and modern side of the band, beginning at the 2004 release “1-800 Vindication”. In 2008 Illdisposed are back with what they are best at. This time there are no synths, samples or clean vocals. This time it’s all about death metal.
Since the beginning of the 90’s Illdisposed have been one of the top bands of the Nordic death metal scene and have released 9 albums. Not denying their death metal roots their brand new offering “The Prestige” will meet all expectations. However, Illdisposed have also developed their own form of death metal with groovy rhythms, melodic but still hard hitting riffs, a massive wall of sound with an aggressive vocal in focus.
“The Prestige” takes you back to the mid-nineties with a present day view. It is raw, hard and straight forward, supported by the powerful mix of Fredrik Nordström. The lyrics deal with such issues as sexual submission and religious fanatics. But also the every day relationship.
The experience gained from the production of 10 albums and the band's numerous shows all over Europe and as far away as New Zealand says it all: Illdisposed know what it's all about.
Over the years their success has not just been restricted to the metal scene: The last two albums entered the official Danish album charts at position 85 and 58 which made Illdisposed the first death metal band with such high chart entries. The video to “Still Sane” was the most wanted metal video on VIVA Plus for two weeks and the track “Dark” was featured on the soundtrack to the horror blockbuster SAW.
Not just scene experts should have recognised the name Illdisposed as a firm synonym for "finest metal quality" by now "The Prestige" will hit even the last hillbilly which most certainly will secure the Danes the top position of the European metal scene!
