Continuum of Absence is an excellent, well performed album overall, with the band’s clear ambition in making the record shining through and only enhancing the experience. Indeed, Ingurgitating Oblivion set a very particular and unique tone before plunging the listener unrestrained into its delightfully claustrophobic depths. The magic of it all is that they somehow make it hard to want to swim back out. (

Continuum Of Absence

In 2011, after six years of clandestine band-activity, Ingurgitating Oblivion hurled forth Enigmatic Symmetries. The drum position had been changed and the Enigmatic Symmetries demo does document this change of mood within the band as the compositional approach had evolved towards utter chaos, bleakness and franticness. Enigmatic Symmetries shows off a natural production, prime aggression paired with epic pieces of (a)tonal lunacy. As always, the lyrics are beautifully written and accomplish the overall performance. Clearly, this demo (which earned IO a record deal with Willowtip / USA) grants a glimpse of what was bound to follow … the long-awaited 2014 release.
