"A mix of thrash, death and traditional metal, with a touch of keyboards adding an ambient/eerie flavor to the music". That's how Canadian band Deeply Confused's biography reads. Their EP Isolated features seven tracks, two of which are short instrumentals. The first of which, "On The Lake Shores" gives the CD an eerie start, "Torments in the Shade of the Totem Pole" is the first full track featuring lots of death vocals ,nice guitar work and the compulsory double kick drumming with some use of keyboards. "The Thirtieth Thorn" is next and actually this is probably my favourite track on Isolated, the riffs and harmonies really work on this one and the mixture of vocal styles is a great compliment. This song, like other tracks on Isolated, also has a technical/progressive touch to it. Drummer Gabrielle Morin does a very impressive job on the CD along with guitarists Stephan Filion and Fred Bergeron. Isolated is a good debut, and if you think this style of music would appeal to you then check out the samples on their MySpace page.
