4 stars Inspired Horrific is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian death/ thrash metal act Mechanism. Mechanism is a completely new find for me and I was only made aware of the bandīs existence because I read that Gene Hoglan ( Dark Angel, Death, Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory...etc) plays the drums on Inspired Horrific. So I guess sometimes it does pay off to have a known face/ name in the lineup. The album is a self-released affair.

The music on Inspired Horrific is a modern kind of death/ thrash in the vein of Fear Factory and especially Strapping Young Lad. The vocals are a bit more on the growling side than the vocals in the latter band. There is plenty of variation when it comes to the vocals though and youīll hear lots of clean sung parts too in the music. The songs are technically well played, the production is top notch and overall this is just a high quality product. If Mechanism had lured Devin Townsend to contribute on vocals instead of Chris Valago, you could have mistaken Inspired Horrific for a Strapping Young Lad album ( around SYL (2003) thatīs how high the quality is. When that is said, the melodies are not quite as strong or memorable as most of the output of Strapping Young Lad. Now I know how much a band like Mechanism probably hate to read a review like this where their music is compared this much to another band but when the similarities are this obvious I would be wrong to neglect that in my review. A 3.5 star rating is deserved. This one is close to a 4 though.

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
