Inverloch are a band from Australia that consists of 2 former members of Disembowelment and plays a very atmospheric form of funeral doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Distance | Collapsed" which will be released in March by Relapse Records.
Ambient soundscapes start off the album and after awhile the music starts getting more heavy along with some dark sounding melodies as well as speeding and introducing blast beats and death metal growls onto the recording while the guitar solos and leads go for more of a melodic route and the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there are also some grim black metal screams being mixed into certain sections of the recording while some of the fast riffing also uses a good amount of tremolo picking and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and as the album progresses some of t he songs start bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in more of a dark yet melodic atmosphere to t he music.
Inverloch plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the early 90's style of doom/death metal while also bringing back some of t he original funeral style and also having its atmospheric and ambient moments along with a touch of black metal, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Inverloch are a very great sounding atmospheric, funeral doom/death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From The Eventide Pool" and "Cataclysm Of Lacuna". 8 out of 10.
