Death Inquisition – 918 (2012)

deathinquisition

Death Inquisition are a fun band, and they make some competent thrash that has a feel of its own. What I like about this band, is that they don’t sound “modern” at all (see: Evile, Lazarus AD and their ilk) and they don’t sound too “retro” either, the way most other contemporary thrash bands sound. If I was to pinpoint their exact sound, it would lie somewhere in between Possessed and D.R.I. or Sodom and Crumbsuckers. It’s basically old school late 80’s extreme thrash with a healthy dose of late 80’s crossover injected into the bloodstream.

Despite carving out an individual sound for themselves, the band does not attempt to push any boundaries in terms of song structure and riff selection, preferring to craft songs that do their primary purpose to the point of perfection – the function being to induce front row headbanging and a maniacal circle pit. There’s even some Hardcore style mosh moments here, for those who like to throw some punches.

Deathinquis lineup

The 4 tracks follow seemingly similar patterns. The riff and vocal combination is quite catchy; demonic riffs are employed with the lyrics having a tendency to repeat a lot. However, to the band’s credit and the benefit of anyone catching this band live, that aspect ends up creates a ‘sing-along’ feel similar to a lot of hardcore bands. Another hardcore aspect of the music is their slower mosh parts, but they still feel quite ‘metal’ due to the riff selection, and the constant attack of the solos. This, along with the lengthy nature of the compositions, keeps bringing the band back into the metal zone despite its flirtations with the hardcore side. Rhythm section is tight, as it should be, the drummer providing some interesting fills in the more monotonous parts of the music to keep the track going, but my favorite part of the overall package of the music is the vocals. Special praise needs to be reserved for the vocalist. He has a unique raspy voice and is brilliant with both the lows and the high pitched parts.

Production can be best described with one word. Savage. And the savage aspect of the production makes the already barbaric music even more flesh-severing. It’s not some fancy job with clear-cut drums, nondescripit bass and industry standard guitars. Nope. It has personality, despite the rawness, and in this genre of Thrash Metal where more and more bands lose their personality the second they step in the studio, it’s a breath of fresh air. My only gripe is that the snare seems a bit too pushed back for my liking, but like I said it’s still tasteful. The razor sharp guitar sound is just addictive!

Anyway, this isn’t something you’ll be listening to often. But when you do, you’ll be thoroughly satisfied. Recommended to fans of Thrash Metal, as well as Hardcore Punk fans who like to hear some evil fucking metal.
