Inhibitions – La Danse Macabre

It’s cold out. Why not blast some icy black metal? Why not blast some icy black metal from Inhibitions? Inhibitions is a two-person project based in Athens. Their newest release is La Danse Macabre, and it consists of ten tracks that are determined to bury listeners in the sharpest of shards imaginable.

La Danse Macabre (2018)

A handful of tunes on La Danse Macabre deserve to be mentioned. After the first two tracks, “Back to the Dust” jumps out as a well-formed song. Its sturdy rhythm and hypnotizing melodies make it especially enjoyable. “No Escape” has a little bounce to it, and “Eternal Winter” takes you through different levels of emotion. The last track is a fine cover of Satyricon’s “K.I.N.G.,” which was offers just enough of Inhibitions’ personality.

One of the elements I’m fond of is the use of the piano here. It offers some hints of beauty in the sounds of chaos and upheaval. However, La Danse Macabre never avoids the dismal template black metal fanatics appreciate. The guitars remain sharp and crisp, constantly stabbing at the musical atmosphere. Vocals roar throughout the album without being overbearing and tell the songs’ stories with poise. La Danse Macabre is a record that will please any devout extreme metal listener.
