Repugnance, Restlessness, Syncope, The Past is Mine to Bear, Faker, Becoming Unstoppable and Coming for You (The day I die) – what we have here is a very good and exceedingly solid work, extremely reminiscent of classics of the genre, like early Amorphis, In Flames and Dismembered. While the comparison is inevitable, Era Decay manages to deliver an amazing record, with an authentic presence and a subtle hostility, with a strong set of qualities of its own.
With strong guttural vocals, heavy, but fiercely melodic rhythms, and aggressively obscure, but poetic guitar lines, Inritum is a solid work in the genre of Melodic Death Metal. Beautiful guitar solos and very objective songs are trademarks of the band, that has a very characteristic style, completely spirited into the values of the classic features of the genre. Nonetheless, the record is not only interesting, but very concentrated, amalgamated into a ritual of dissonant deliverance, that never passes unobserved. Without being dispersive or monotonous, the album presents to its audience a remarkable sonorous outline, extremely vivid in one hand, full of beauty and ardor, but with a pronounced and permanently obscure shift, on its more dark and sinister side.
All tracks are very interesting, and, although each one of them have its own beauty, the work, after all, is bounded by a sonorous identity, and a cohesive style that abide the band to a formidable sense of genuine sensibility, that guarantee to their work a place of honor into the pantheon of the greatest contemporary bands of Melodic Death Metal. With a brutal and conspicuous style, yet sensible, dramatic and beautiful, Era Decay really knows how to deliver true and marvelous Melodic Death Metal, honoring in the process not only their predecessors, but all of their influences.
Finally, Inritum can certainly be described, with all words, as a very good and authentic album, able to perpetuate the strength, the beauty and the majesty, as well as all the virtues of the genre. A work splendidly done, to be proud of, certainly this album will achieve a lot of important features in the career of Era Decay, being such a mature, sensible and significant work, that not only aggregates important values to the genre, but disseminates the integrity of a sonorous soul that will never disappear. In other words, an album that emancipates the genre as something stronger than the music itself.
