Montreal’s Dissimulator will be a new name to most in 2024, but with the release of razor-sharp debut LP ‘Lower Form Resistance’ the band unleash an overwhelming future shock on the auditory and sensory nerves, permanently imprinting on the cerebral cortex with their pulsating unconventional attack. Comprised of a membership with resumes that include Chthe’ilist, Atramentus, Beyond Creation and more, the band executes its jagged sci-fi Death-Thrash with vicious intricacy.
Over the course of ‘Lower Form Resistance’s’ 42 minutes the jarring angular riffs, complex structures and atmosphere of exuberant incongruity meshes acutely with a straightforward momentum and perpetual accessibility at the crossroads where the Thrash and Death Metal scenes began to coalesce and directional potentiality felt limitless. Add to this a Voivod-ian prescience of robotic sentience and technological doom and Dissimulator’s vision makes for total immersion in their world-building enterprise.
The off-kilter and adventurous spirit of ‘Lower Form Resistance’ that manages to sound fresh today while conjuring a certain spirit of ’88-’93 makes the Dissimulator debut a mesmerizingly bizarre and gratifying dose of aggressive alacrity.
