InMe - The Pride Album Review

InMe The Pride Album

Review of The Pride Album by InMe

Numerous trends and scenes have come and gone since the turn of the century but one of Britain's gutsy alt bands keep coming back to the table with new material. Inme return with their fifth studio album 'The Pride' and show the band is still functioning despite label complications taking them away from the mainstream limelight.

As well as bucking passing trends Inme have also endured their own comings and goings in their personnel. This album marks the debut of new additional guitarist Gary Marlow who replaced Ben Konstantinovic. It is also a unique record in the sense that funds from sales of the album will be going towards the Pledgemusic charity.
In return fans will gain access to exclusive band content.

The Pride kicks off with 'Reverie shores' and is a fine way to start an album, packed with sweeping guitar solos and the typical vocals of singer Dave McPherson.

All in all, the album has a more concentrated focus on the song compared to the band's 'Herald Moth' album which had elements of metal as well as a dash of prog. Upon listening to the lyrics featured on 'The Pride' it is noted that they are more positive and upbeat than their previous effort.

One early highlight on the album is 'Moonlight sea bed.'
It is a fusion melodic guitars with pounding staccato bass notes from Greg McPherson and an electro breakdown creating some kind of crazy metal techno love song.

To contrast the above 'Escape to Mysteriopa' suffers the problem of being five minutes and 42 seconds too long I.E should not have made the album. It slows the momentum of the album down that has been built up over the previous five tracks.

However the momentum is regained with following tracks 'guardian' and 'Beautiful Sky Gardens'. Both songs have super tight drumming Simon Taylor and face melting guitar chops.

Inme's 'The Pride' is a strong album that can stand alongside their previous work. The problem is that there is not a track noteworthy enough to break back into the limelight outside of their support and fans of the genre. But that isn't to say the album should go unappreciated.

3.5/5
