Album Review: Ingested – Where Only Gods May Tread

Manchester’s Ingested rise from the underground to the wider metal sphere with new album Where Only Gods May Tread, mixed and mastered by long time producer of Ingested and Cryptopsy guitarist Christian Donaldson, and death metal royalty Dan Seagrave handling the artwork.

I thought that Opener “Follow the Deceiver” was bludgeoning… then “No Half Measures” kicks in and heatwave aside I can genuinely feel my eyeballs melting… Just towards the end comes an absolutely wonderful riff which even after completely listening to the album I am still thinking about. Old school death metal tones linger in “Impending Dominance” and as with the previous track, the pace change comes with choral voices and piano parts but still with that slab of aggression. For me, this is the track of the album.

Up next is “The List” so be sure to tick brutal vocals and crushing riffs off your list as this track is brimming with them.

“The Burden of our Failures” features the first of three special guest appearances on the album. Handling duties on this one is The Acacia Strain’s Vincent Bennett. More skull smashing savagery ensues with a track I can imagine getting a lot of airplay, “Dead Seraphic Forms”, as the chorus is catchy as hell. Crowbar and Down titan Kirk Windstein steps into the guest role for “Another Breath” for which a definite dynamic shift occurs, and the track is murky and foreboding but with still enough bite.

Normal service resumes for “Black Pill” featuring the last of the guest appearances – Kublai Khan’s Matt Honeycutt. Penultimate “Forsaken In Dissolution” feels like the part in a horror movie when you are certain that the victim has very much met their end, but then after what feels like an age they let out a single breath, so it’s fitting that “Leap of the Faithless” is there for one last fatal strike.

An unforgiving and unrelenting slab of terror. If you want to know more, or very own head honcho Mosh recently interviewed vocalist Jason Evans about the upcoming album.

Where Only Gods May Tread will be released on August 14th via Unique Leader Records.
