Infecated is a death metal band from Saigon, Vietnam that was formed in summer 2018 by Toan (vocal) Duc (drum) and Nhan (guitar). Raising from ashes of Onslave, a well-established local thrash/death metal band, three of them decided to form a new band to live their simple passion: be able to enjoy playing extreme metal. The band was completed once Hung joined on the bass and started to write some very first materials in November.
Starting to play local gigs from the end of 2018, Infecated gained some recognitions among the local scene, for being original and true-with-their-root. In beginning of 2019, they released their first demo, Predictable Death which received a lot of supports and positive criticism from the extreme metal community. In May 2019, the band recorded two songs that will be released in August 2019 in a Split EP with Taste, veterans death metal band from Sendai, Japan, under Bloodbath Records.
In April 2019, Infecated played their third show, Filthy Lies, with three other well-known local bands, that turned to a sold-out/ fully packed metal event that hasn’t been seen after longtime, for an all-local-bands show in Saigon. Later the same month, they played Haibatrung DeathFest, regular death metal festival, in Hanoi for the first time of all the members. In July, Infecated played another huge sold-out show supporting Canadian legendary band Cryptopsy live in Saigon.
Their music is focused of early (old-school) death metal sound which has a lot of influences by 90’s death metal bands , especially Florida based legendary bands e.g. Death, (early) Cannibal Corpse, Malevolent Creation … Members: Toan – vocal (7/2018 – now) Duc – drum (7/2018 – now) Hung – bass (10/2018 – now) Nhan – guitar (7/2018 – 9/2019)
