Infected Mushroom
1

Still celebrating last year's food-inspired 'Legend of The Black Shawarma', Infected Mushroom, aka Amit 'Duvdev' Duvedevani and Erez Eisen, have been pretty busily making inroads into the good ol' US of A in 2010, as well as recording a new EP, featuring a number of American collaborators, and working on Paul Oakenfold's new album.
"We toured the whole of the States," Duvdev tells us between gigs around Northern Europe.

Having worked with vocalists Jonathan Davis of Korn (on 'Smashing the Opponent') and Perry Farrell from Jane's Addiction (on 'Killing Time'), two artists that Duvdev says he grew up listening to, the addition of heavy guitars has strayed from their past trance sound, ingratiating them to a country built on rock music.
"In America when you have distortion and you have vocals, then you have people that recognise it like rock and metal. Certainly, Infected Mushroom got accepted in places that we've never been accepted before," says Duvdev. "Some of our old fans said, 'This is enough for us', as they're the hardcore psychedelic trance people, but every year you gain some fans and you lose some others," he adds philosophically. "Our goal is gain more fans than we lose!"
