Beginning as a thoroughbred brutal death metal / deathcore band, Ingested made their first appearance in a split release in 2007 but gained fame with their debut in 2009, Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering. This album consisted of dandy slam riffs , blast beats and various kinds of brutal vocals, while lyrically (and aesthetically, if one looks at the cover) they had to do with typical themes of the genre. The result was a clean and catchy album that would satisfy the gullible ones of brutal death and some fans of deathcore, without necessarily being an exciting edifice.

Two years later, in 2011, the band released their second album entitled The Surreption, which differs more at the concept and less at the music itself. Here, Ingested deal with general matters of death and revenge, and not childish but always entertaining gore texts as in Surpassing … Elements of deathcore / hardcore have been added to the music and members of Martyr Defiled and Despised Icon have helped with vocals on two tracks , which confirms the change of direction of the band towards this area. The sound and production underwent the same treatment as the first record so again the sound is crystal clear, full and heavy.

The compositions of the the album have the necessary though limited variety of guitars lines, based on fast melodies and short breakdowns here and there in the tracks. The vocals and drums have the necessary strength, showing how Ingested follow the familiar path of modern brutal death, for fans of Pathology and last Katalepsy. The Surreption has a dynamic, without going beyond oneself , which is why probably not hooked many listeners. Musically, it is exactly what we had been accustomed to with the band , meaning an above average result.


The gate of the cavern is despair, and its floor is paved with the gravestones of abandoned hopes. There Self must die; there the eagerness, the greed of untamed desire must be slain, for only so can the soul be freed from the empire of Fate.
