Inanimate Existence is an example of technical death metal done perfectly. I remember when the tech death movement boomed and I was all about it. But the issue with tech death is it’s easy to become absorbed with the skill and trying to one-up other bands. But Inanimate Existence has so much depth to their music.
Lately I’ve been hooked to their new album Underneath a Melting Sky. Inanimate Existence’s songwriting is amazing. But rather than filling each song with solos and crazy drum fills, they have lots of melody and general unique riffs alongside of the crazy solos and drum fills.
And the vocals come in perfectly; you don’t want your vocalist to blend in with the rest of the band, rather you want your vocalist to come in like a monster. I especially respect vocalist Cameron Porras and his storytelling approach to writing lyrics. As a writer and lyricist myself, I love it when vocalists go outside of the box and write really unique lyrics or write concept or fictional lyrics.
Underneath a Melting Sky is another legacy album for Inanimate Existence, and they will continue to improve with each album. Hopefully we see a lot more touring for this band in 2018.
I was able to speak to Cameron Porras. In the interview we discuss how the crowd is reacting to Underneath a Melting Sky, the lyrical concept of the album, and if the band believes Underneath a Melting Sky is their best album
