Taking cues from genres like death metal, thrash and even hints of black metal and doom, InnerSphere present Amnesia, their debut full length riddled with ten tracks of ripping metal. Born in the wintery month of December 2015, InnerSphere became active just months later in 2016 to eventually put out a self titled EP in October of that same year. InnerSphere boasts a monstrous yet equally melodic sound that is the culmination of death, thrash and even tinges of black metal and doom. Each of the genres that these Czech monsters have employed for their assault work in cohesion to present to you a full bodied and well rounded sound that is easy to sink your teeth in to and twist your vertebrae to.
Amnesia begins with a prologue titled Proem, which tells you what this record is about. Amnesia is a concept album centered around one man that experiences loss, love, sacrifice and death among other afflictions. Throughout this release these feelings are palpable as InnerSphere weaves their tale very well as Amnesia unfold much like a novel would. One track is a chapter in the story of this man that has suffered loss, experienced purgatory, death, love and sacrifice. Amnesia is a harrowing record, but one that sucks you in keeping you captive until you have listened to the final chapter in the tale that InnerSphere has created. Each track plays well with one another creating an overall cohesive sound and record in general.
As dark and cynical as this release is, it is just as melodic and memorable. Each track is crafted very well with the overall story in mind aimed at taking you on a harrowing and darkened journey. Amnesia is a well strung together record that provides you with ten total tracks that keep you hooked and wanting more of the story to unfold. As Amnesia plays and each track rolls out like a blackened fog, your mind wanders through numerous corridors of darkness ever steeping your mind in madness and pitch black darkness.
From the razor sharp riffs, to the ever charging drums and to the unearthly growls that transition to howls of despair as well as the ever present rumbling bass lines, everything in this record is done very well. Amnesia is an impressive debut record as InnerSphere has incorporated numerous genres in to its overall sound and they have worked in a compelling concept in to this record as well. Through and through, Amnesia is a good record, one that you can keep coming back to and enjoy over and over again.
