Inverted Matter – Detach (Review)

Inverted MatterInverted Matter are a death metal band from various countries. This is their debut album.

Featuring the former drummer of Suffocation, this is a pure death metal feast, recalling the early days of bands such as Immolation, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Skinless, Nile, and the like.

The songs are well-played and written, with solid performances and an obvious understanding of what makes classic death metal so timeless. You can tell that a lot of love, care, and attention has gone into this album.

The songs have more than enough decent riffs, plenty of aggressive heaviness, and furious blast beats, to satisfy. However, I find that my favourite parts are when they promote the more mystical, atmospheric side of their sound, weaving the type of rich, grim tapestries together that bands like Nile and Immolation do so well.

Detach offers the death metal scene of 2017 more than the average brutal death metal band usually does. For this reason alone, never mind any of the band’s other selling points, it should be widely listened to.

If you’re a fan of the death metal of the 90s, when it seemed like almost every week found a new album by some obscure band being released that was not only brutal, but also had a dark atmosphere and hidden depths, then this album is for you.

Highly recommended.
