Ingurgitating Oblivion

Voyage Towards Abhorrence
(Unmatched Brutality Records)
Enslain Magazine Volume 2, Issue 1
Order Issue #8!  This review included.
Brutal Death from Germany! I hadn't known this sound made it across the pond. It has the low end guitars with the occasional pinch harmonics, double-bass grinds, and slow, chunky muted chords, similar to many brutal American bands.

Much like the deep philosophy contained in the lyrics, the music seems to represent a deconstruction of metaphysical preconceptions and boundaries. In addition to the previous description, Ingurgitating Oblivion also blends in fast single note passages (often harmonized), choppy thrash-like picking, and some dissonant chords. The production sounds a bit like Hate Eternal's "Conquering the Throne." The vocals are deep with a morbid tone. They are mostly indiscernible, which is to be expected, but they do sound just unique enough to stand out.

"Voyage Towards Abhorrence" is just that. It's a sublime journey into darkness, which is rare in the total brutal end of the death metal spectrum. One could say this is greater than the sum of its parts. At times, it has the intellectual feel of progressive music, without its pretensions. Get this and enter the void! --
