In Loving Memory - Negation Of Life (2011)
Band Of The Month
powered by
Showing off their deathly tones all the way from Spain is the band In Loving Memory. The
melodic doom five piece have released their second full length studio album, entitled “Negation
Of Life.”
Life.” It’
It’s nine destructive tracks that will leave you stunned with its depressive riffs and
beautiful melodies. Crying solos will hypnotize you deep into the album as you will be rudely
disturbed by vicious growls and bone crushing drum rolls.
Light And Darkness Radio
This album starts out with a violent and powerful track, entitled “Even A God Can Die.”
Screeching sounds poor into your ear with sharp frequencies leaving you flinching for the first
few seconds of the song. Meanwhile eerie bass lines follow shortly after. Muddy guitars begin
chugging away with soft strings floating in the background. The vocalist wastes no time as he
begins the verse with a deep heaving growl that will knock you on your ass. Towards the middle
of the track enters an interesting combination of guitars and piano riffs that play back and forth
giving an evil yet beautiful tone to the music. Also the vocals switch on and off between
growling and eerie whispers as the guitar chugging begins to get even heavier. It ends on an
upbeat tempo with booming kicks and snares that are sure to leave you head banging for the
rest of the song. You’
You’re even hit with a melodic solo which really tops off this awesome track.
The next song, “Skilled Nihilism,”
Nihilism,” comes out of left field with its futuristic synth effects that
sound like you’
you’re walking into a dance club. This is quickly interrupted by mean distorted guitar
riffs and catchy melodies. The drum fills in the track are very impressive and will have you
throwing up your devil horns immediately. The mood calms down in the beginning of “Adversus
Pugna Tenebras.”
Tenebras.” Non distorted guitars come rolling in smoothly while low clean vocals lay
gently on top. The drums stay upbeat with interesting fills and crashing cymbals as the tempo
starts to pick up. The vocals soon switch over to demonic growling along with distorted guitar
riffs that blast away. The guitar work towards the middle of the track gets even heavier with its
wild, melodic breakdowns and fast double bass pedal drumming. This calm down again for the 11/01/2012

bridge as a gorgeous guitar solo takes over and plays angelic melodies for about a minute
straight. This is definitely a track that you’
you’re gonna want to replay a couple of times.
A couple of song later comes a seven minute masterpiece, entitled “Shimmering Divinity.”
Divinity.” It
manages to combine melodic riffs with short breakdowns in between where the drop is just
incredible. The bass alone will not only knock you down but also beat you into the ground
recklessly as relentless growls roll over top of you with its vicious lyrics. The solo guitar work is
astonishing as it will pull you deep into the music as the drum fills surround the background and
capture for the rest of the track. You do, however, get a chance to catch your breath with the
next song, entitled “Through A Raindrop.”
Raindrop.” It opens with a simple little acoustic melody that
shortly after switches to electric. The cymbals are clashing hard in the background but the
drums stay basic for the most part at first. The whispering clean vocals enter with eerie tones.
Distorted guitars begin to take over with heavy chugging chords and thumping bass lines. The
tempo stays steady throughout the song, however the vocals switch back to devilish growls that
rumble across the guitars and drums perfectly. Definitely an awesome combination.

The album ends with “Nulla Religio, Solum Veritas”
Veritas” which carries a lot of emotion. Slow tempos
of sad guitar riffs open the track as the drums deliver exploding rolls. The vocals enter with
thunderous growls that will shake you violently throughout the track. It definitely has a strong
doom feel to music. Strings play a small part as well as they consume the background during the
middle of the song. Gorgeous melodic guitars keep the track catchy as the growls continue to
deliver dark, depressive tones. By the end of this track you will be reaching for the replay button
for sure.

In Loving Memory really goes above and beyond the death/doom genre as that provide dark
melodies along with violent, yet gorgeous tones. “Negation Of Life”
Life” takes you into a whole other
realm of demonic sadness and beauty. Each track runs smoothly into the next as the song
structure is also well balanced between the vocals, solos, and other instruments. This is
definitely an album worth picking up. It leaves you wanting more every time you listen to it.
