Going Insane!! - 92%

The_Black_Priest, August 18th, 2013

Insane Prophecy is the brainchild of twin brothers Xulif Nawaz & Ifty Sarwar from the Indian Metal circuit trying to set a mark with their intense blend of Black/Death music. Having been formed in the year 2008, "An Apogee of an Inquisition" is the bands very first compiled offering - an EP consisting of 3 tracks & an Outro.

This EP will surely blow your mind away if you weren't expecting too much given the fact that India has previously failed to produce quality Black Metal bands. Insane Prophecy are here to stay with their blend of intense Black/Death music. Influence of Behemoth/Immortal is clearly noticeable. The Ominous riffs, shrieks, loud bass and hard hitting drumming will surely put one's mind into a spin. This band has perfectly compiled a Black Metal EP with a touch of modernity. The mid-paced riffs and the drumming are the focal point of this bands hard-hitting hammer-blows to the ears. The song structure of each track is rather professionally arranged which is a plus considering this is the bands first compiled release. The production is also top notch. Only thing lacking would be the vocals which I feel was too generic.

The highlight of the EP would be the outro "Obsequies" which is surprisingly an Opeth influenced slow & mellow acoustic ending to the EP. Composed entirely by drummer Ifty Sarwar this outro is very soothing and pleasing to the ear and I feel a perfect ending for the EP.

The debut offering of Insane Prophecy was immensely promising and after listening to this EP one would surely monitor the band closely for future releases.
