Indesinence : Ecstatic Lethargy

Let me start this review by stating that this demo kicks seriously ass. Indesinence manages with only a dark intro and two lengthy tracks, to give an impressive demonstration of their talent and skills. Their brutal brand of doom can be compared to the relentless ultradoom of bands like disEMBOWELMENT, Ceremonium, Dusk and Winter.

Both tracks enjoy a stunning (certainly for demo standards), heavy production that emphasizes the low-end spectrum of the band's sound. The rambling guitar vibe is simply phenomenal, while the heavily reverbed, pervasive grunts sound almost identical to those of the mighty Ceremonium.

Powerful, menacing riffs are alternated with short, calmer interludes and some occasional outbursts are also introduced to ensure that there is enough variety in the compositions. Throughout this work, there is a threatening, dark graveyard atmosphere and this demo should be ideal to terrify your annoying parents or preachy neighbour with.

Are you into the more extreme realms of death/doom? Then invest in Indesinence, because I foresee a great future for this band in my crystal ball! With new bands like Catacombs, Ataraxie and Indesinence, the extreme doom genre proves to be the next step in the doom/death evolution after the somewhat worn-out romantic doom death in the tradition of the three Peaceville giants.
