I.N.C – Black Hearse Serenade – Album Review

I.N.C – Black Hearse Serenade – Album Review

23rd January 2015 0 By John Deaux

This an album that I have been waiting for with bated breath for some time & it doesn’t disappoint my senses.

In the vein of Lamb Of God & just as tasty. Indestructible Noise Command deliver funky riffs, groove drums, insane guitar solos & amazing vocals galore with an absolute onslaught that is as unrelenting as the concept of this album.

Lead guitarist Erik Barath explains “Black Hearse Serenade’ tells a story, set in Southern California, about a broken man, his congregation of runaways, junkies and lost souls and a murderous path to finality. A childhood filled with embarrassment and shame, born of religious zealotry and an overbearing mother, that broken child has now become a man.”

From the suspenseful intro of Stirring The Flock.

Right through to the closing bars of the last track Love Like Napalm, it’s a record that is just filled of musical gems that are a brilliant representation of this genre of Metal.

The stand out track on the album for me is No Turning Back & the video ( Thomas Mignone (Slipknot, A7X, Mudvayne)directed video. Starring Micheal Rodrick (24, CSI & Without a Trace) to accompany said track is pretty much the imagery I had in my mind’s eye when I heard the track for the 1st time.

The artwork for “Black Hearse Serenade” was illustrated by world-renowned dark artist Sam Shearon whose countless creations include cover art for many popular mediums, including album art for bands such as MINISTRY, BIOHAZARD, ROB ZOMBIE, and more.

“Black Hearse Serenade” marks a substantial step forward for I.N.C., as well as a bit of a departure from the sound they’ve been recognized for in the past and have truly broken out of the thrash box with this record.
