Inlandsys are a band from France that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Carthago".
Rain and thunder sounds start off the album along with some keyboards a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs at times. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the album you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while death metal growls are also a very huge part of the recording. Black metal screams are also a very huge part of the songs along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody.
Clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style. A couple of the songs are also very long and epic in length as well as the music also having its symphonic moments, towards the end a brief use of clean vocals can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, death and occultism themes.
In my opinion Inlandsys are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carthago" "Siege For Souls" and "Burn For Baal". 8 out of 10.
