INMORIA - A FAREWELL TO NOTHING. THE DIARY PART 1
ROCK IT UP RECORDS / METALBOX RECORDINGS
Metal To Infinity
suppose Tad Morose is known by the majority of our readers at Metal To Infinity
webzine. This band delivered us one after another great album but it has been
quiet for a while around this Swedish band. Their last effort must be “Modus
Vivendi”, from 2003. It was a great album but nothing has been heard about
them ever since. Their Powerful Metal with a melodic edge has always pleased me
and as far as I know they’re still active. What are they waiting for?
reason I am mentioning Tad Morose is because their original drummer, Dan
Eriksson, is now back on the front with a band called Inmoria. The band released
an album before, with a member of Lefay. Another member you need to know is
Soren Nico Adamsen, the singer of the well praised Thrash Metal band Artillery.
Two good reasons to try this band out but believe me if I say there’s more, so
much more! The attractive front cover was the main reason why I started this
album to review out of the package Rock It Up Records delivered me and I was
right about it.
album takes off with a track called “Blinded” and I am immediately totally
overwhelmed. Strong riffs, a terrifying cry by singer Adamsen and songs that
take me by the throat without any mercy! This is dark, this is Powerful,
breathtaking and yet melodic! I don’t know what to listen to at first. The
riffs are superb and razor sharp, the vocals are very seducing if you’re a
Metal head ‘pur sang’! In the back some subtle keyboards are weaved into the
music and it gives the song that extra touch. The leads are giving me cold
shivers and I am totally out of my mind! I am so thrilled I feel the need to
make some advertisement on the Facebook.page ‘Lowlands Metalheads’ and the
reactions are all positive!
plays with a surrounding turbo sound and that’s the main reason why this
release is so irresistible and overpowering! Soren Adamsen sounds outrageous and
it’s impossible to not be touched by his vocal lines and vocal sound. I never
would have thought this guy has such a extraordinary voice! Inmoria wrote varied
arrangements and the used keyboards, often mixed with fast fingered emotional
played and ripping leads are making me worship this band! Manticora, Tad Morose,
Manimal, Eldritch, Metal Church… are crossing my mind but after all Inmoria
isn’t that easy to label but that’s their ultimate strong point. This band
uses all of their talents and they’re creative on a sophisticated way, with
the intense force to bring the listener in some kind of spell! Progressive,
Power, Thrashy but overall melodic and technical!
dark choirs/keyboards that are constantly on the back ground give the band the
charisma like they’re disciples of Hell. This ultra dark atmosphere makes
Inmoria sound like a band from out of the depths of Hell, fantastic! Compare it
with the atmosphere on albums like ”In search of thruth” (Evergrey),
“Burnt Offerings” (Iced Earth) and “The Devil’s Hall Of Fame”
(Beyond Twilight). This kind of Metal touches my soul, a soul I would sell to
the devil himself because of it!
is bombastic in all its veins and this kind of melodic ‘in your face’ Metal
is what the modern Metal scène really needs. This is a surprising act and I
really hope for the band and the label this album will be heard by all those
Metal fans out there. The underground Metal movement will enclose them without
any troubles but to me Inmoria is a band that is able overgrow the underground
Metal scène. If they’re capable to bring this kind of first class Metal on
stage and if they can deliver an equal qualitative follow up album they must
break through, no doubts! Check http://www.myspace.com/inmoriamusic
