Ingested is a band making a rather big name for itself in the Deathcore field thanks to the release of their debut full length release Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering, and it’s with a very good reason. This debut release shows a lot of potenetial for this band, and also helps to raise the bar for the Deathcore scene a bit by utilizing strong and brutal music, and keeping it that way even through the breakdowns, not falling pray to lazy breakdowns that many of today’s well known acts in the style fall pray to. Instead, Ingested focus more on intense music that often streams into some heavy and intense breakdowns, while trying to be as sick as possible. And, for the most part, it works out well.

The qualifier “most part” is used here because sometimes the release does fall pray to the general lazy breakdown, which aren’t too bad here, but, like the closing breakdown on “Intercranial Semen Injection”, they are often boring and come off as if they are just trying to extend the length of song. Luckily this is the only track that gives off this vibe. Another issue would be that, even though the release clocks around thirty three minutes, some of the tracks will have repetition that make you think you heard it already on the album somewhere, and chances are you have, but that’s about it. The good thing is most on here flow nicely with the music and have a very intense punch, adding another little element to the music without really breaking the flow of the music. But the real stand out with this band is how their music really shows off a foundation based on the Brutal Death Metal style moreso then any “core” style out there. Why does this help? The music has a much heavier and brutal sound to it that many bands in the field lack.

Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering is an intense release right from the starter track “Skinned and Fucked”, but the real shining tracks don’t really show up until the absolutely intense track “Intercranial Semen Injection”, which really shows off the band’s potential. Many of the songs on here vary with the speed, being a slower to mid-tempo, such as with “Cremated Existence”, to the absolutely punishing fast paced tracks like “Pre-Released Foetal Mush”. While the faster tracks really will make you want to go on a homical rage (in a good way, of course), it’s the slower songs that will really build up due to the focus on the music’s sound being heavy and all around crushing in comparison. The main draw to this release would be the drumming, primarily the intense bass kicks, and those really shine through on the slower tracks. The addition of the typical “pig squeals” that adorn many Brutal Death albums are used here, but in no way abused, and definitely adds to the quality of the material presented here.

All in all, Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering is one of those releases that shows off just how the Deathcore scene should be handled. No matter what your stance is on the fusion of breakdowns and the “core” element into metal today, this is an album you simply need to check out because of how little of these elements are used, and how well they are implimented when utilized. If you haven’t checked out Ingested yet, then be sure to do so as soon as you can, because these guys have definitely earned the attention they have received thusfar, and are worth keeping an eye on.
