Up-and-coming Chicago-based alternative metal act, Denial Machine, recently posted a new song on SoundCloud. Titled “Devil In My Veins,” the track is from the forthcoming EP, The Flagrum, The Scourge, set to drop this month.
Denial Machine vocalist Casey Lee Mullen has a similar style to Disturbed’s David Draiman with the range of a power metal singer. Combined with the instrumentation of a metalcore band, it would be predicted that this band may sound peculiar. However, the mesh between the operatic Disturbed-esque vocals with the riffage of Killswitch Engage or All That Remains works well for Denial Machine. There are also some thrash metal influences incorporated into “Devil In My Veins.”
Along with the precision and melodic heaviness, there is evident emotion poured into this song. This band has a clear sense of passion which they have magnificently portrayed in this one song. This is the type of passion that can lead to a successful career in the music industry.
