Long have I been a fan of In-Quest, and long have I awaited their debut CD release. I knew to expect Death Metal of the highest caliber, but I wasn’t ready for this total perfection. The band likes to use the phrase “Insane Intense Power” in reference to themselves, and while that’s certainly accurate, this is more than an exercise in brutality. The cool part is that in addition to being ultra-heavy, these freaks are also supreme masters of their instruments, but they don’t feel the need to show off, and just use their knowledge to write memorable songs. Plus this has an amazing production, allowing you to distinctly hear everything that is going on (the kick-ass basslines, for example). And then there are the excellent vocals of Mr. Noise Grinder. He covers the spectrum from his usual deep growls to perhaps more Black Metal inspired yells, and he’s inspirational in all modes of operation. This is one of the best Death Metal (or any other) debut albums of all time.
