In­gested

YOU’RE GO­ING HOME IN A BRU­TAL SLAMBULANC­E…

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Reviews - DOM LAW­SON

That ir­re­sistible sub­strain of heav­i­ness known as bru­tal slam­ming death metal has steadily grown in stature over the last 20 or so years. Out-blast­ing their UK peers from the start, In­gested have long threat­ened to as­sert their au­thor­ity world­wide and The Level Above Hu­man is pre­cisely the al­bum they needed to make. From the mad-eyed as­sault of opener Sovereign on­wards, ev­ery last mo­ment feels like bru­tal slam has been given the ul­ti­mate up­grade. These are eas­ily the finest songs In­gested have writ­ten, full of fluid tempo shifts, in­ge­nious beat­downs and even a hand­ful of un­de­ni­able, fat-ass hooks. In­vid­i­ous is a mid-tempo crusher of epic pro­por­tions; Misery Leech is a pitch-black and pit-friendly re­venge at­tack; Bet­ter Off Dead is so fuck­ing heavy and hos­tile it surely can’t be le­gal. Eas­ily the equal of those sem­i­nal In­ter­nal Bleed­ing and Dy­ing Fe­tus records, if not their su­pe­rior, this nonemore-grand slam is an instant, vis­ceral clas­sic.
