Inevitable End: The Severed Inception

Swedish band Inevitable End make their Relapse Records debut with The Severed Inception, and at the same time announce to the world their entrance into the 'technical death metal' sweepstakes. That's right folks, if you live by the extreme, complex thunder brought forth by such acts as Nile, Origin, Beneath the Massacre, Decrepit Birth, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, Spawn of Possession, Obscura, and the like, then Inevitable End and their latest will be a welcome addition to your normal listening cycle.

Though this CD is only about 35 mimutes long, the Swedes don't waste a nanosecond on any filler, just one killer track after another filled with brutal riffs, complex time changes, dizzying leads, jackhammer drum blasts,and blood curdling screams and growls. Tunes like "Embracing the Origin", "The Severed Inception", and "Persevering Incitement" offer plenty of musical virtuosity and technical, jaw dropping passages, led by the accomplished skills of guitarist Marcus Bertilsson and drummer Joakim Malmborg. Both of these guys can flat out play, and the line-up is rounded out by bassist Emil Westerdahl (though Marcus played most of the bass on the album) and vocalist Andreas Gerden. Gerden offers up a wide variety of styles here, from inhuman death growls, to thrash styled screams, even some harsh hardcore barks. There are some moments here, especially on the crushing "Firstborn Of All Dead", where the band is so locked in, and the arrangements are so massive, that you can easily predict big things for this four-piece in the future. For now, The Severed Inception is quite a powerful debut from Inevitable End, and though some might say they are treading a path that is already quite crowded with plenty of talented bands, the future for them does indeed look bright.

My Score:

I was at their release show and it was one of the coolest live experiences I have had! Hope they get to tour and record more albums soon!
