Since forming in 2006 brutal slam death Metal five piece Ingested, from Manchester, have developed a reputation as one of the more savage death Metal acts to come out of the UK in recent times and listening to this intense and compact EP you can understand just why.

It's a concentrated conglomeration of punishing beat downs, epic riffs and guttural vocals, delivered at blistering speed.

I am not always in the mood for something quite this brutal but when I am this really hits the spot, their approach to brutal slam death is considerably more sophisticated than some of their peers, there something highly compelling about their face ripping blend of death Metal blast beats and hardcore breakdowns.

The four track EP 'Revered By No One – Feared By All' follows two previous full length releases, 2009s 'Surpassing The Boundaries Of Human Suffering' and the heavier and darker 'The Surreption' in 2011, and soundwise offers a more mature and darkly brutal listen.

I love vocal balance between the brutal, indecipherable gutturals mixed with some higher decipherable screams. It gives the feel of an ongoing dialogue and having three people covering the various elements of the vocals does add a depth to the vocal part of the track also, particularly on the opening track 'Titanomachy'.


Across the album the drum work is good, precise and well thought out and the double bass and blast beats are used with discretion to enhance rather than overpower the tracks, although there is a generous usage on 'Regicide', not that I am complaining in the slightest.

'Uncrowned' is probably my favourite of the four tracks, it's crushing, varied, the vocals are gut wrenching and it has some killer bass work. This EP is unrelenting to the final track, 'Endgame', a chunk of spiralling, savage mayhem until the soundbite kicks in at the three minute mark and finally fading out kicking and screaming to the end.

There is a lot packed into these four compositions making them an intense and invigorating listen. If you are a fan of Kraanium or Aborted you should find this interesting.

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
