This duo of inverse faith is quite a long time with us, formed in Italy 2006 and having two albums on their back catalogue: Hanc Aciem Sola Retundit Virtus (The Algolagnia Divine) in 2009 and Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans in 2014.
The first album was a very impressive debut with its long ritualistic songs mantled with fast brutality, hooks and ripping vocals while the second one took a more progressive approach and a bit different vocal style.
Rite of Inverse Incarnation has a rightful combination of these two works: fusing the choir-like vocals and atmosphere of the second album with the ripping, relentless speed of the first one we got this little beast of a mini album.
It’s a motherfucker to review just two songs so I’m going to keep this short and sweet, this EP fucking works and its only fault that is not an album. If it was, it would be their best one yet and luckily this EP is just teaser for the third follow up Besides the impressive construction of songs, personally the best part are the dark versatile vocals that looms over the instruments pulling into a new level.
It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it offers a very enjoyable listen with a lots of replay value.
