Genre(s) - Black metal
Origin - Germany
Album -
Year of release - 2008

în from Funeral Procession, Geïst and Lantlôs - among many other projects - is keeping himself well busy. This is one of his newest collaborations and you could describe it as a mix of influences from the first two bands I mentioned. Elements hauled over from Funeral Procession are the vocals and the drum production, and in the music's most straightforward, furious sections you may just wonder if you aren't accidentally listening to Heavenlie Aeons Grimlie Torne Apart or Millennium of Revenge-Jerusalem in Ashes. However, most of the time Inarborat have their focus shifted away from grim antichristian violence and more to astral and natural themes, both in lyrical and musical terms. In this respect, the added diversity, melodicism and more mature atmosphere remind of Geïst (album here), but benefitting from a more upfront production. So the band succeeds in circumventing the major downsides of either predecessor, and judged by itself, this is another worthy album of powerful, intellectual black metal the way I like it best.
