Parasite Inc – Dead and Alive Album Review

Today we are featuring another promising melodic death metal band, PARASITE INC, from GERMANY. We have reviewed their cancer-curing album, DEAD AND ALIVE, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Parasite Inc is a promising traditional melodic death metal band I discovered years ago. Today, I have decided to take a closer look at their groundbreaking album, Dead and Alive, released in 2018. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Parasite Inc has started their careers with a long-play album called; Time Tears Down in 2013. Since then, the band released one more long-play album, Dead and Alive (2018), one live album, Live at Emfa 2020and five singles, Deadlife (2013), Headfuck Rollercoaster (2018), Once and for All (2018), Cold Silent Hell (Orchestra Only) (2019) and Cold Silent Hell (Orchestral Version) (2019). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Parasite Inc is one of the very few bands who have achieved a lot with a limited discography. Even after their debut album in 2013, these German gentlemen have proved themselves to the world, immediately got themselves into a level where they were working as a professional touring band. This, my friends, what I call success. When you listen to their music carefully, you will see that none of these things happened by chance.

Dead and Alive is a bullet-proof sounding, an essential album in its specific genre where the band offered the world 11 powerful songs with more than satisfying thrash metal guitars, groovy drums, death metal vocals, old school vibes, and the necessary amount of metal. In my book, this is one of the most appropriate styles that everyone is dying to hear at live festivals. The songs are mostly built in an “easy listening” way. The band has decided to keep everything smooth, focusing more on the energy side of things, which is admirable. The album has a powerful groove and drive from the beginning to the end. From time to time, they make you feel like you are listening to one of the cornerstone albums of an internationally known band.

As I have also mentioned above, the overall style is mostly traditional, combining galloping guitars with brutal vocals and making everything richer with additional orchestral instruments. It is like a great combination of thrash metal dynamics, melodies of the symphonic metal, European and Scandinavian vibes (especially in melodies), and the pace of death metal here in an irresistible shape.


Technically, Dead and Alive sounds very satisfying to me. Everything sounds clean, clear, dynamic, energetic, well recorded, engineered, and in great harmony. I am not sure who produced and mixed the album, but he has done a fine job without a doubt. This is one of the most iconic albums in Parasite Inc’s, as well as in metal history.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I had a great time listening to Parasite Inc’s magnificent album, Dead and Alive!
