EP Review: Innards – Back From The Grave, Straight In Your Face (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Innards play some of the freshest-sounding death metal music where this kind of style goes – they’re taking the best elements of old school death metal and spicing it up with some grind a la early Carcass, Repulsion and Impetigo to create a sizzling blend of both classic styles that’s done to perfection.

Founded by ex-Grog guitarist and a bunch of like-minded death metal fanatics, this smashing debut also features vocals from the legend Kam Lee (Massacre) as well as guest solos from none other than Frank Blackfire (Sodom). Rooted in the horror movie culture, this is any death metal fan’s wet dream.

Back From the Grave, Straight In Your Face will be released on February 21st 2020 via Transcending Obscurity Records.

Looking for some nasty? Looking for some savagery? How about some good old fashioned destructive heaviness? If the answer is yes then Innards have you covered.

Embodying a horror movie culture, a short recording from The Evil Dead sets up Intro – Night of the Anthropophagous. The volley of sound that follows is as death metal as it comes driving a manic tempo forward and inwards. It’s such a callous mugging, the lack of emotion is almost admirable.

That almost seems kind though as Enlightened through Hate takes the assault an extra step. Thanks to the added efforts of Frank Blackfire of Sodom and Kam Lee of Massacre. Inhuman is just one word you could use to describe this bedlam.

Finally, wrapping up the far too short EP is The Fog and unsurprisingly it is another substantial tome of obliterating death metal. From the vocals that sound akin to something twisted and sick that came crawling out of the sewers. To the jumble of riffs and hooks, to a set of drums that could crack a hole in the earth, Innards truly deliver a remarkable death metal EP.
