Inevitable End The Severed Inception

Inevitable End The Severed Inception
The debut effort from Swedish death-grinders Inevitable End is, to put it mildly, intense. With The Severed Inception, the band blend death metal and grindcore but add a modern touch. The album starts with the title track, which is a blazing attack of aggressively fast guitars and drum beats, as well as glass-shattering vocal screams. Vocalist Andreas Gerdén also makes use of traditional death metal growls, which kick in with full brooding effect on "Embracing the Origin." Inevitable End also capture the essence of grind with unpredictable time signatures in "Collapse in Reverse." Catching the listener off guard, however, is "Firstborn of all Dead," which rises from a slow tempo — slower than the norm for this genre — to an aggressive force that makes this track the album's most threatening. The Severed Inception ends with "The Art of Corruption," which closes the death-grind mash-up album with an overall catchy, yet evil, atmosphere. (Relapse)
