3 stars "The Inherited Repression" is the 5th full-length studio album by Australian death metal act Psycroptic. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in February 2012. "The Inherited Repression" was recorded at drummer Joe Haley's home studio. It's a professional recording studio though and the album features a clear, sharp and powerful sound production.

The music on the album is technical death metal. If you are familiar with the last couple of albums by the band it'll be no surprise that the band have sneaked in a couple of "core" influences too. It's especially the growling vocals that feature an aggressive "core" edge that more "regular" sounding death metal vocalists don't employ (not completely unlike how the vocal style has changed on "Carnival Is Forever (2011)" by Decapitated). The music contains razor sharp riffs, ultra fast double pedalling, tempo changes and breaks and just a generally high level musicianship. The materiel is well written but it takes time to really tell the tracks apart and hooks begin to appear.

Overall "The Inherited Repression" is a quality technical death metal album and a 3.5 star (70%) rating isn't all wrong.

UMUR | 3/5 |
