Act Of Denial

Act Of Denial seems to have come out of nowhere. The band originates from Croatia, but this is an international affair with four of the six residing outside that country, and the oft-abused term "supergroup" almost applies here with the (Soilwork and many others) and will-play-anywhere bassist Steve DiGiorgio (too many to list). The guys quickly came together, releasing their debut album Negative in 2021, only a year after their formation. Befitting the pedigrees here, the band sound like old pros, playing a fairly safe yet still energetic brand of accessible modern melodic death metal. Too soon to tell if this is a project-only affair or the start of something big, but Negative has major-player written all over it.
