Insepulto was spawned to hearken back to the times of the old, to the days long forgotten, the days when death music sounding the Ancient Gods was once mighty and triumphant. In the decaying pits of mediocrity, Insepulto emerges from the festering depths of the ineffable to beset a putrid miscreation in the form of an aural onslaught. Armed with the knowledge of the unholy, old-school templates, Insepulto are not definitely dead but they sure are dreaming. The dreams of an evil, malevolent creature erecting from the dark, shadowed tombs, the Morbid Spawn of Resurrection! Lo and behold, these Costa Ricans necromancers are proud to promulgate their offerings of deadly tunes, all of which are sure to please the Ancient Death Gods whom are now in deep, dreadful sleep.
Morbid Spawn of Resurrection seemly cursed by the Death Gods themselves, sees a rigid yet coherent combination of instruments which is only possible through effective utilisation. Straight from the crypts of Death Gods, the weapons of choices are to sound particularly to fulfil the various horrifying aspects of the album itself. For one, Insepulto’s close relation to that of the old school is unmistakably here, which are preferably in the veins of the British and Flordian styles. Moreover, the mood that is set up here can be easily described and ranked as some of the most sickest, vile and morbid one that is ever conjured in recent times. Are these not enough to dissipate your doubts into useless, broken shreds? To satisfy your twisted, necrophagous delight, we shall move on deeper into Insepulto’s musical aspects. Now sickness, this way come.
Moving on, Morbid Spawn of Resurrection is infected with myriads of powerful and evil riffs, enough to pack a wholesome punch to your unsalvageable face. They are made to discharge disgustingly and moreover, to bear that of a rough yet crunchy guitar tone. With the onset of driving, heavy guitar rhythms, they are arranged in an organised manner in order to correlate to the occasional wild and face-melting leads. Are you hoping to mend that face of yours? Well, not today son, at least not when Morbid Spawn of Resurrection is in place. Accompanied with the pounding of bone-crushing beats, and the regurgitations of rotting death psalms, the stench of Morbid Spawn of Resurrection is now complete.
To further dissect and better understand the underlying essence here, we will now take closer look at anatomy of Morbid Spawn of Resurrection. Insepulto’s approach to songwriting is rather straight forward in a sense that they are definitely not fond of beating around the bush. Instead, Morbid Spawn of Resurrection thrives entirely on simplicity, which is mixed with their unmistakable brand of brutality to deliver Death Metal that reaches the boundaries of accomplished standards. Morbid Spawn of Resurrection is also made to be easily accessible and in an aural sense, “available” to the ears as they can be heard with clear comprehension. Here, song structures are as per usual as they adhere to the basic foundations of Death Metal. What you have heard and basically worshiped in previous masterful albums that the old guards have offered, you will definitely find glimpses and followed trails in that of Morbid Spawn of Resurrection.
Although it might seem that Morbid Spawn of Resurrection could possibly be that of a perfect revival of old sounds as per described, particular the overwriting and all-devouring aspect that it possesses, it is not without its fair shares of scars and wounds. For one, the songs are generally rooted in a mid-tempo approach, giving the impressions to a mundane experience of “going through the routines”. Now, a variation in paces would be nice for a change. In my opinion, it should be more of a roller coaster ride that is filled with a balance of highs and lows. This is one part that is highly overlooked by Insepulto. If it were to be concealed more tightly and meticulously, it would result greatly in a more satisfying listen. However, we should all know that it cannot be undone so listeners should put that aside and enjoy Morbid Spawn of Resurrection for what it is. Nevertheless, it is still a decent assault on the ears and it is highly recommended to underground dwellers who are still hunting for 2012’s death metal gems.
Well, are you hoping to escape the wrath of Morbid Spawn of Resurrection? Then let me put this forward beforehand, your efforts are futile. So meanwhile when you are just sore from all that audio sickness, why not check out Vanhelgd’s Church of Death and Interment’s Into the Crypts of Blasphemy while you are at it? If you are looking for some extra aches on the neck, they should be on the frontlines on your next listening pleasures. In my opinion, they are clearly in the veins of Morbid Spawn of Resurrection in terms of overall sounds. Do yourself a favour and check them out if you enjoy Morbid Spawn of Resurrection. You can thank me for your headaches later.
About the Author
This is what I feel about my favourite genre in metal:
Black Metal is a timeless piece of magic(k)al art that is not limited by boundaries. Be it musical or aesthetics wise, it contains an honest and raw essence that is capable of not only satisfying the most abrasive of listening ears, but also an elevation to a higher state of transcendence. For years, the sphere of what we considered Black Metal has since expanded. It is mainly because of the myriads of influences that have been brought into the genre itself. Moreover, the influx of experimentations has rendered traditional Black Metal characteristics invalid. This is another trait that attracted me, for one, artists could then create their own art which allow the categorisation of Black Metal to be a certain state of emotional and feelings, rather than that of musical qualities. However, it is still mostly a personal experience to undergo. For the most part, it is different for everyone and I definitely respect that. Listening to Black Metal for me is like opening the floodgates to an ever-flowing source of energies where they are being channelled and manifested in the form of music which we are able to comprehend. Through passion and dedication, one will be able to realise the true potential of the magick that is in work. With that set into stone, the occurrence of change as we know it will be bestowed upon the listeners themselves where they will bask in all the glory and rewards. It is like an endless quest on the path towards spirituality.
