Invisible Oranges comments on the premiere of Inhumation
“Inhumation balances attributes that often exist at separate poles of the metal world: here, gloom is not the enemy of momentum, and brutality is not diluted by the presence of melody. Drawing on this foundation, it dramatically weaves between atmospheric and meat-grinding passages, capturing attention and dodging any possible staleness or repetition as it shifts through death metal’s various forms. The tactical use of leads helps avoid diminishing returns on their jaw-dropping virtuosity, and they’re often backed by dual guitar tracks, one more melodic and one riffier, to keep that duality going. Inventive drumming, packing a lot more groove than normally present in this subgenre, nails down the coffin lid while providing another layer of nuance.
Wrought from massively complex structures but hinging on a powerful concept and sense of self, the heavily-technical compositions within Inhumation create a darkly beautiful and theatrical death metal sound that still rips and tears. At times, it almost seems like headbanging is a little informal for this—these are blackened waltzes for an audience of the damned.”
About The Release
New Hampshire-based blackened melodic death metallers Unflesh are excited to announce their second full-length, Inhumation. Set for release on Friday, April 2nd.
Inhumation comes a mere two years after the launch of their well-received 2018 debut album “Savior”, yet it showcases an incredible amount of new growth from a group already brimming with abundant talent as is. The group’s new album Inhumation also sees guitarist/vocalist Ryan Beevers (ex-Solium Fatalis) aided by two new members: bassist Orion Hubbard (ex-Excrecor) and drummer Jeff Saltzman (Aversed, Allegaeon (live), Continuum (live), ex-Solium Fatalis).
Regarding the musical direction on Inhumation, Ryan Beevers says: “For this album, there was a lot more focus on developing a lingering dark atmosphere throughout the record with the music and lyrics to create a more immersive listening experience. The album is a lot more dynamic and introduces some new elements into the Unflesh sound, all to enhance the mood within the album.”
Unflesh – Inhumation will strongly appeal to fans of Arsis, Dissection, Emperor, Necrophagist, Necrophobic, Naglfar, Tribulation, Obscura, and Revocation.
Unflesh vocalist/guitarist Ryan Beevers comments regarding Inhumation
“Inhumation delves into the concept of desensitization and losing one’s soul or losing one’s humanity so to speak. The title itself is used in a metaphorical sense, as the actual definition of the word “Inhumation” is the action or practice of burying the dead. For album purposes, the title is used on a more spiritual and emotional level. Each track on the album is a bit of a meditation on different aspects of the primary concept. When the listener gets to the last song on the album, the totality of the album will have taken form.
I was extremely focused on binding together the riffs and lyrics to channel a certain atmosphere I had in my head initially when writing the songs. The goal was to create a more immersive listening experience. I think this goal is also reflected in how the album sounds and in the artwork. Everyone involved worked very hard on this record. We are looking forward to sharing this album with the world and to finally document the next step in the Unflesh sound with this second full-length album.”
