Indricothere "II" LP
Indricothere rises from a presumed extinction to unleash the incredible new album, II.
Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts, Behold the Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) founded Indricothere before joining any of the groups which would bring him his notoriety in the world-wide metal scene. Despite pre-dating most of his other recorded output, Indricothere did not see wide release until The Sacrosanct Opuscule and Gilead Media came along to present the album on CD in 2007 and LP in 2008, respectively.
It was assumed that Indricothere was a relic of the past, a project that would never again bring us a new album. I’m happy to say that those assumptions were false. II has appeared, and it’s as though barely any time has passed since Indricothere’s self-titled debut. The new songs immediately feel familiar, but with a fresh perspective and updated sound. Performing all guitars (yes, the Warr guitar has returned) and programming all drums himself, Colin’s work on Indricothere strikes a perfect balance in instrumental metal. Intricate without becoming unraveled or losing its way, intense while retaining its unique melody. Vocals are not once missed, and the meticulously programmed and mixed drums elevate the songs in a way I’ve never heard before. This is a technical record crafted by a master of instrumentation, a dense metal album filled w/immense riffs that keep your head nodding throughout.
Presented on 180g black vinyl in a thick jacket (24 pt stock) w/poly-lined black inner sleeves. From Gilead Media.
