Boston Death Metal smokers Inhalement push out their third EP, Live Resin.
In the throes of the public health-induced slowdown, Boston’s own Inhalement got together in October to record a live in the studio album. According to the press notes, the music was “Captured in one take – no edits, no overdubs, no punch ins and plenty of mistakes – to document the experience of Inhalement in the most primal form.” A very punk, DIY approach, and an accurate description.
There are five songs in the set, starting with “Charred and Stale” and then two each from Eternally Stoned and Grotesque Inhalement. The first song is a good warm up for the frenzy that follows. It really does sound like a live play through, and, maybe because of the mic placement, it has a dingy club sonic presence. You can almost feel the pit and smell the sweat. One song boils into the next, and they are “Exhumed for Edibles,” “Drowning in Reclaim,” “MJ Ultra,” and “Bong Rip Execution.” Every heavy thing we like about this band comes out in growling elegance.
Rolling up on twenty minutes of aggressive menace, the new Inhalement album might not cure you of all your ills, but it will help you forget some of your troubles for a while. Recommended.
December 11th is the drop date for Live Resin. Get yourself together by then so you are ready to crank it up when the clock strikes.
