press here in Denmark is pissing itself with joy over The Interbeing's debut
album, 'Edge of the Obscure'. And rightfully so. 'Edge of the Obcure' is a tight
and very, very professionally sounding disc.
Danes at least ought to recognize heavy doses of peer bands Mnemic and Raunchy
in this release, and in that sense you could say that the originality mark isn't
put very high - but this fact makes it in no way a lesser album!
affair sounds fantastic and wonderfully dynamic, mixing a Fear
Factory/Meshuggah/Soilwork inspired blend of metal with electronic sound patterns.
Honestly, you wouldn't automatically think that this is the band's first album.
The songs are well-wrought and there's definitely a red thread throughout the
album, even if the diverse soundscape leaves the listener with plenty of
impressions to take in and digest.
The best track of the album? Hard one, but I think I have to go for Fields of
Grey, if nothing else, then for the heavy intro alone.
Cool album from a band that we'll hopefully hear a lot more from in the future.
