Infected (typeset as iNFeCTeD) were an industrial, death metal band from Perth, Western Australia, which formed in 1992 with James Campbell on bass guitar, Joe Kapiteyn on vocals, Matthew Jefferson on guitar, and Gareth Morris on drums.[1] After two self released cassettes they signed with Shock's metal label, Thrust Records.[1] They released two albums, Crawlspace (1993) and Control (1995).[1] After each album they toured Australia to promote the records. They supported international acts Morbid Angel, Fear Factory, Pungent Stench and Carcass on their tours in Australia.[1] In 1996 Infected released another cassette[1] and broke up in September.[2]

Infected reformed in 2003 to record a new ep and again in 2008. After another shorter period of inactivity, 2009 saw the band play a Halloween show in Perth in support of a re-release of their album crawlspace through Western Australian label Prime Cuts Music.
