Dissimulator from Montreal, Quebec, Canada

While DISSIMULATOR will be a new name to most in 2024, with the release of razor-sharp debut LP, Lower Form Resistance, the band unleashes an overwhelming future shock on the auditory and sensory nerves, permanently imprinting on the cerebral cortex with their pulsating unconventional attack. With the members’ combined resumes including Chthe’ilist, Atramentus, Beyond Creation, Incandescence, among others, the band executes its jagged sci-fi death/thrash with vicious intricacy.


DISSIMULATOR was created by guitarist/vocalist Claude Leduc, bassist Antoine Daigneault, and drummer Philippe Boucher. Over the forty-two-minute course of Lower Form Resistance, 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 Voivodian 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 1988-1993 makes the DISSIMULATOR debut a mesmerizingly bizarre and gratifying dose of aggressive alacrity. Those who frequently scan the auditory output of Obliveon, Sadus, Voivod, Atheist, Hexx, Decapitated, Meshuggah, and other such technically audacious acts must set their sights on DISSIMULATOR.
