Inverloch - Dusk | Subside [EP]

Inverloch - Dusk | Subside [EP]
Record Label: Relapse Records
Release Date: April 10, 2012


Formed in 2010 from the ashes of defunct Australian doom metal group Disembowelment, Inverloch initially began their career as a Disembowelment tribute act despite having 2/4 of the band's original members in the line-up. Performing under the moniker of d.USK, the band gained a small following and began generating buzz among the local metal scene. However, when it came time to record a studio release, the band decided it was time for a change. No longer a tribute band, they dropped the d.USK name and were reborn Inverloch. Focused on crafting an intricate and looming sound of metal, the group set about recording their Relapse Records debut, Dusk | Subside.

Clocking in at a total run time of 22 minutes (over the course of three songs), Dusk | Subside is an impressive first effort. The dense and foreboding atmosphere is a palpable one, the gloomy music highlighted by the occasional synth ambience; the low and growling vocals at the center of it all. Blending elements of death metal, doom, and sludge (with a dash of atmospheric black metal) Dusk | Subside is a promising EP that will no doubt appease long time fans of their father group Disembowelment but also attract a whole new set of fans with their ominous sludge-doom stylings that will no doubt be even further refined on their next release.
