Inexorum are a band from Minnesota that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Moonlit Navigation" which will be released on June 26th by Gilead Media.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the guitar solos and leads are done in a very melodic style. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard along with the riffs also adding in a lot of melody and the vocals also add in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams.
Melodic vocals can also be heard on one of the tracks while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with a couple of the tracks also being very long and epic in length.
As the album progresses a brief use of clean playing, female vocals and synths can also be heard briefly as well as a brief instrumental but keeping the focus on a heavier direction and they also take the Swedish style of the 90's and update it for t he modern era. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover struggle and grief themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Inexorum and if you are a fan of melodic black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ouroboric State" "Chains Of Loss" and "In Desperate Times'. 8 out of 10.
