Musical vector of Moscow band Addict is a contemporary groove metal with some elements of adjacent styles showing the band as a disciple of the genre provided by Chimaira, Decapitated, Machine Head and Pantera. Colorful monolithic riffs, powerful rhythm section, piercing vocals and almost industrial saturation with synths and samples – all these elements create distinctive sound, in conjunction with lyrics that metaphorically impose dark sides of our reality upon global cosmic and apocalyptic events.
The band delivers uncompromising aggressive forceful and possessing its own face and sound material which will appeal to those who appreciate the real music above trends.
Addict presented themselves in 2017 with a release of promising material in a spirit of groove metal with elements of death metal and industrial. And supported it with a hurricane music video on the song Another War, which has gained a lot of positive reactions in the metal community.
In the end of 2018 Swamp was released as a single forestalling band’s new material.
