Disarmonia Mundi is largely the brainchild of Swedish multi-instrumentalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid (who is also known for his achievements with Soilwork). The riffing patterns and momentum of this album sound exactly like Natural Born Chaos. So if you loved that particular album, or perhaps its follow-up Figure Number Five, this feels like a continuation, with slightly busier riffing and another vocalist in there (Claudio Ravinale). Within the disc you’ll find the standard accumulation of grunts, barks, Strid barks, and then the emotional, clean, radio friendly chorus parts which were pretty much perfected already by Soilwork. For some fans, who have already heard the past works of Disarmonia Mundi and are aware of the comparisons, this is probably a glowing recommendation. The Isolation Game is Disarmonia Mundi’s fourth album, and it has all the trademarks of modern melodic death: great production, powerful grooving guitars steeped in transient melodies, keyboards, an onslaught of vocals coming at you every which way, and a few breakdowns. Not every song sounds exactly like some carbon copy of Soilwork, they put a few twists and turns in the mix and to be honest, they are like an extreme twin sister for the Swedish act. Tracks like “Blacklight Rush”, “Losing Ground” and “Building an Empire of Dust” certainly build up a sweat, and there are a few brief breather tracks with acoustic guitars like “Glimmer” and “Beneath a Colder Sun”. Basically, if you enjoy modern In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Black Dahlia Murder, or any of this stuff, you can smell what these Italians (and one Swede) are cooking.
