Invidiosus / Press

"Imagine if you would that Hate Eternal and Decrepit Birth had a dirty little love child that fortunately loved classic, NWOBHM, metal, well, that little shit would probably and most likely have to be Invidiosus. This ep, A Specious Existence, slays from start to finish, I especially like the cover of Judas Priest’s Free Wheel Burnin’."

“Out of all of these Minnesota bands mentioned in this post, Invidiosus is by far the most brutal for several reasons. First of all, I don’t know precisely what “invidiosus” means, but it sounds to me like they could be referring to an invidious dinosaur. I was around during the age of the dinosaurs, and I can say that I know firsthand that you just do NOT fuck with an invidious dinosaur. I like it. Even more brutal is their bio on Reverbnation, which states that since the band’s inception in 2007, Invidiosus has gone through TWENTY FOUR member changes. Maybe that isn’t something you’d want to advertise if you’re actively seeking a record deal, but withstanding that many lineup changes within the span of six years is certainly laudable in and of itself. Musically, this is getting into even grindier territory than the other Minnesota offerings featured here.”

“Invidiosus, a technical death metal group hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, has announced Duane Timlin as the session drummer for their debut full-length album, set for release in early 2014. Duane is well known for his drumming on Dying Fetus’ 2007 record, ‘War of Attrition’, and has performed with bands such as Consumed, Divine Empire, Hank Williams III, Anal Blast, and Forest of Impaled. Alongside Invidiosus, he is currently recording and touring with Insatanity and Sacrificial Slaughter.”

“This weekend I will be heading out to Minneapolis where it all begins. I will be tracking drums for the upcoming Invidiosus full-length. Depending on time I may get with Lucas Rominger and re-track some old Never Again songs (page coming soon). Next I will be heading out to Philly to get with the Insatanity boys to work on their upcoming full-length, and shortly after will be performing with them @ Mojo 13 in Wilmington, Delaware, as part of their 20 years of Uniholiness show with Insatanity, Sapremia, Blasphemous, Black Mass, and Solum Mortum. This show is being filmed for a dvd as well, so all the support we can get would be amazing. As much as I would love to continue on with the guys from here on the Vomitory tour (check dates on Insatanity page), Ruston Grosse will be filling in while I head west to prepare for the ultimate tour with some of my favroite bands and old friends. I'm talking about the Vader, Vital Remains, Sacrificial Slaughter, Execration, Extremely Rotten tour.”

“Invidiosus' music is extremely technical and intricate yet maintaining all out brutality. There some excellent guitar solos between Alter and Sutton that compliment each other very well. LoGuidice proves that he can also rip right along with the guitarists plus he puts in his two cents by throwing in a few quirky yet very cool basslines apart from what Alter and Sutton are doing. Matthias Joyce packs a ferocious kick in the teeth with his hyper speed vocal style at times while other times keeping a normal vocal speed but it's the speed style vocal patterns that he uses that really stand out for me. Kind of makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck especially when it is done as well as it is keeping with the flow and choppiness of the insanity of the music as evident on track two (DSFA) and track three (Creature). Fast, aggressive and flat out head splitting is the entire "A Specious Existence" EP and I highly recommend at least checking these guys out for yourself.”

“Goregrowler's Ball Review, 2011: Invidiosus, very VERY frantic and crazy. I loved that their vocalist stopped what he was doing (during their set), got down into the pit, and started a pit of his own... that's pretty much dedication--craziness--right there.”

“Now THIS is what I like baby! Something groundbreaking, the songs are: catchy, memorable, fun (I love that melodic, almost symphonic, riff in the verse... it's kind of... At the Gates-ish) and I loved the solos. I'll be following these guys around to see what they come up with in their first LP.”

Yula - Masters of Metal Review

“INVIDIOSUS (Minnesota, unsigned) Technical Death Metal from MN. Invidiosus is a band name that I have seen for the past few years. I have heard nothing but good things about about them, and now is the time that these guys finally get to come down to TX and perform for all of you at this year’s Ball. Be sure to support this band at the Ball, as I’m sure this name will become familiar to you all one day!”

“This people, is an awesome band. There are millions of death metal bands out there, all trying their own formula. Some work, some don't. But these guys have no formula because what they sound like, is like playing till your fingers bleed and then wiping the blood off before getting back to it...”

“Tony Garfield, ex-member of the classic grindcore act ANAL BLAST, has recently joined up-and-coming Minnesota technical-death metal shredders INVIDIOSUS (www.myspace.com/invidiosus). Garfield was the drummer on the widely-renowned Anal Blast/Cephalic Carnage split (5.0bese/Perversion.. and the Guilt After), and has also filled in for Midwest deathgrind masters INCINERATE. INVIDIOSUS is currently working on releasing new material with Garfield, after just finishing up a 4-song demo in mid-2010. The 5-piece experimental-death metal band is currently unsigned, and will be searching for a label in the months to come.”
