It takes a full hour to listen to Inherus’ debut album Beholden, and this gigantic record isn’t one to take lightly. Five of the six songs are at least ten minutes long (or a few seconds away from that distinction) and only closer “Lie To The Angels” kicks into a higher gear with the death metal-inspired break in its latter half. The harsh vocals come into the forefront during this section, a jarring counterpoint to the crisp melodies from vocalist Beth Gladding.

The group’s expansive guitar solos and extra instrumentation with synths and mandolins gives justification to extravagant song lengths. As a doom metal album, these songs have to be given attention to pick up on the little things they do well. Inherus are already hard at work on their second album, as Beholden appears to be just a creative starting point.

Rating: 3.5/5
