Deformatory - Inversion Of The Unseen Horizon

Well, in this article, I'm gonna review Deformatory's new album which is released independently. Deformatory is a Canadian band which found in 2010. At this moment the band includes 2 members. Anyway, this album is called "Inversion Of The Unseen Horizon" that starts with an aggressive song which is 'Within The Astral Abscess'. Good drums, riff and growling vocals. As a technical song, it almost includes all elements of this genre but in my opinion it could be more technical. Bass tune and accent are heavy enough to enjoy. The time signatures are specific and the drummer's playing is insane and that the other favorite part. To my mind, guitars could be sounded much heavier.

Second track is like a machine gun which is gonna drilling your brain's core directly. Especially from 0:22-0:32 are fantastic. You can feel a hollow space in your brain. First solo is not good at all and it was one of the worse solos ever and I think I could not to be in the song. It's not related to the song. Maybe it has its own concept. Vocals are perfect. Breakdown is special and again the second solo is not my type. Vocalist is terrific.

Third one is the hell bringer. It has inestimable riffs and sections which most of them are not composed to be predictable and it's enjoyable and it's clean that they spend time to do these riffs either. Vocalist and the drummer are the band's main event.

'Summoning The Cosmic Devourer' is some kind of influencer which encourage you the cut your head off. Each section is a reaper. Everything is good except the guitar's tunes as I mentioned before. The song's ending is like a damn happy ending in limbo.

Fifth track is extraordinarily. Slow like a technical burning. I mean not to suffer your prisoner for fun but to dig their soul. That's what this track does to you. I really like the slow sentence of the song. In my opinion it would be great to change tempo and sections time to time and if you want to do something new, the new generation accepts and includes these thing. Again solo is not my type I can't find the connection between it and the other elements. The intro remains me 'Where The Slime Live' from Morbid Angel and it really shows itself from 1:29-1:38 which I listened several times.

In 'The Embervoid Where Dead Stars Reign's intro gives you some time to solve the previous songs for yourselves and prepare yourselves to be drilled again and again. Actually it is a good track. I don't like the solo.

The seventh track is like a grinder with different options as the other songs are but this one is phenomenal and the riff changing is sensible enough. I mean it's not a mess-death it has its principle. olio but still neat. After this track you want to be alone with your own thoughts and then the eights track begins with an acoustic intro which gives you some time to rest your mind. Damn… it's like an axe to your spine. 'Impaled Upon The Carrionspire' is gonna make you cripple. You can't feel anything like you're dead and you damn body enjoys the torture. I mean some kind of pleasure torture.

By the last song, you can be completely understood about the real meaning of hate and aversion which is magnificent. It's a mix of drill, machine gun and purest hate. I really like it. the album finish with a great riff.

Generally, it's a precious album and you can enjoy it, completely. If I want to be honest, everything is great enough except guitar solos and the guitar's effect. Solos could be much better and guitars either. I mean so times I couldn't hear the guitars clearly and it be missed in some parts. It's not my type of mixing and mastering at all (in technical genre).
You know, many things that you hear in studio won't be played well in normal speakers and I think that's the main problem so I believe that the sound engineer should do it by the way that normal listeners could enjoy either. This was my own idea… maybe I'm wrong.

As I mentioned before, drums are marvelous and vocalist is on top. Anyway, with all due respect to this band, I give this album 4 stars.

Wish them the best. They are good.
