If you are a fan of these bands, Dying Fetus, Despised Icon, Pathology, Suffocation, Devourment, Eighty Thousand Dead, and other similar bands, then this is the next album on your ‘to get’ list.

2015 now sees the band  return with what I call a massive offering with their latest album "The Architect Of Extinction". Take a look at the names of the songs, that alone should give you an indication of what you are about to hear. Angry, brutal, and beat you to the ground.

The album was mixed by Christian Donaldson (Beneath the Massacre/The Last Felony/Cryptopsy), and has some unique guests appearing within the album, such as Julian Kersey (Aegaeon), Taylor Wientjes (The Kennedy Veil), James Schuster (Eighty Thousand Dead/Delusional Parasitosis), and Alex Terible (Slaughter to Prevail), who have added their own ferocity to the sound. This is the 3rd album from Ingested, and I will not compare to their previous ones, only because I haven’t listened to them, in fact, this band is a new experience for me. The artwork is done by Toshihiro Egawa (who also did the artwork for the band's debut record).

I will tell you right now, that I am not a big fan of this style. But I can appreciate the effort and if it’s well put together. I have to go into a different mind set when listening to such a band. And well myself, I may not be one to buy it, I would definitely recommend it to the ones that crave the brutality, death metal punch in the gut. What you will get here is some hard blasts, some amazing guitar riffs, and fast, but what I found the best part of this album was the vocals, low, rasping, growling, and much more, this is what had my interest.

The album "The Architect of Extinction",  from Ingested is due out January 27th in North America via Century Media Records (digital only),

“The Divine Right Of Kings”
