Inanimate Existence line up:

Cameron Porras – Guitar & Vocals,

Scott Bradley – Bass & Vocals,

Ron Casey – Drums

Barely a year after Inanimate Existence’s 3rd album ‘Calling From A Dream’ was released, they unleash their The Artisan Era debut. This is also their first release as a 3 piece and damn, Inanimate Existence is not fucking around. They explore new horizons with each release and they seem to absolutely master each new direction they take. This album combines the dark brutality of ‘Liberation Through Hearing‘ as well as the fantastical soundscapes and atmosphere of ‘A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement‘. This is a very different album from its predecessor (I personally really enjoyed ‘Calling From A Dream‘).

There is plenty of apparent keyboards and synth that is mixed in perfectly. The synth is done very different than ‘Calling From A Dream‘. Here there are several different tones used throughout and some really fantastic melodies as well. The vibe created this time is entirely different and rather epic. The guitar leads are immaculately written and just soar with the music, and if you thought you liked the bass tone and work in ANECOA, wait until you hear this! Tracks like Forever To Burn, The Old Man in the Meadow, and The Djinn will blow you away! The riffs and overall songwriting is phenomenal here though. The riffs are some of the catchiest in the Death Metal subgenres that I’ve ever heard, and the quality doesn’t drop for a second. There is no lame filler riffs and it all flows really damn well.
There are also some deadly grooves in this album. The title track, In Moonlight I Am Reborn, Blood Of the Beggar & Formula Of Spores all have outstanding groovy parts that will have you keep coming back and will be irresistibly stuck in your head. They leave you no choice but to get right into the music.

Ron’s drumming is completely insane as per usual. I particularly like the grooves he lays out on this album. Super creative with excellent cymbal work. It fits the guitar amazingly and the listener can easily got lost in his sick tightness and creativity. His cymbal and ride and hi hat work in particular just mesmerize me.

Every song is simply outstanding and completely unique. Not only this, but the album flows song to song absolutely perfectly. This album is an absolute masterpiece. Add the amazingly well thought out story behind the albums lyrics and the quite possibly best art I have ever seen to coincide with them, Inanimate Existence has the full package right now. This album is everything they need to solidify their name on some of the sickest tours and get the respect a hard working band like them deserves. Absolute album of the year contender!
There’s still time to pre-order the album!
