2009 saw the release of Ingested‘s debut full-length album Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering to much praise. As the years went on, the group started changing, eventually taking on more of a common Deathcore influence that made up much of their 2011 follow-up recording, The Surreption. A good two years have passed since then and Manchester, UK’s Ingested return to Siege of Amida Records for a brand new four song EP, Revered By No One, Feared By All. But is this a stunning example of brutality, or is this another recording that will fall by the wayside for the Death Metal fanatics out there?

“Titanomachy” starts things off rather simple, but undeniably brutal. The mid-tempo pace with deep distortions chug away at the listener, picking up a little complexity during the main verses, while other spots find additional technicality in the drumming. This enhances the intensity of the layered vocals, one of which sounds a bit like the abrasive modern gutturals of Chris Barnes from Six Feet Under. These are mixed together well, but when the raspier approach is presented, it just doesn’t sound right, as if two vocalists awkwardly screaming at the same time. There is a slow traditional Deathcore breakdown towards the end that isn’t too impressive, paling in comparison to the hostility on display in “Uncrowned.” The track itself carries some Job for a Cowboy traits that can be a bit thin, only really intricate in the aspect of timing. There are a few groove heavy areas, which are one of the few things that stand out here.

While the breakdown at the end of “Titanomachy” is rather bland, it does seamlessly transfer into “Regicide.” This one puts some impressive blast beats on full display, but it’s still the groove-heavy Death Metal chords that erupt in some spots, like around a minute in, that really grab your attention and make headbanging mandatory. “Endgame” has some solid moments as well that will have you moving your head to the rhythm at the very least, and even the breakdown about two-minutes and ten seconds in has some infectious aggression that slowly builds the tension for a poorly executed audio sample that ends by reverting back to the slower pace.

Revered By No One, Feared By All isn’t the most impressive mixture of Brutal Death Metal and Deathcore, but it gets a good deal right in the long run. Aside a few spots that are a bit thin, and the occasional typical breakdown, “Uncrowned” ends up the only song that isn’t too inspiring overall thanks to the typical Deathcore band worship many groups are guilty of today. That being said, it’s definitely one of the better hybrid releases to come out as of late, even if it is just an EP. Ingested have matured a bit since 2011’s The Surreption, but this EP shows there is still room for development.

01. Titanomachy – 3:23
02. Regicide – 3:24
03. Uncrowned – 4:54
04. Endgame – 4:04
Initial Pressing Score: 7.5/10
