There is this unsigned deathcore band from Russia whose debut EP Inquisition of Morality I’ve been spinning on and off these past months, that band is called Sin Deliverance. Those that have seen The Metal Gamer best of 2018 list will know that I choose Samsara by The Breathing Process as the deathcore album of the year. A lot of the reason behind the choose is that I personally find blackened and melodic deathcore more memorable in the longrun as the whole atmosphere, use of symphonic elements just clicks with me. The same reasoning can be said of Sin Deliverance as they use the same formula and execute it really well.
The 25 minutes flies by with sweet riffs, great use of keyboard and some classic deathcore vocals. It may not be the most original album I’ve heard but at the same time Sin Deliverance pulls it off wickedly and as a debut this tells the group got a lot of talent in them. From the rainy piano intro to the ending of “Doomsday” I had a great time with this EP and as previously mentioned I’ve gone back to it several times, which in itself does say there is something to get back to. When I discovered Shadow of Intent and reviewed their debut Primordial I got the same feeling, which eventually turned out to become a big hit with the community. While I think Ben Duerr is a big difference maker (he also seems to network a lot) that separates Shadow of Intent from the rest Alexey Slivko also has a great vocal range which further down the line he could develop even more. In the end Inquisition of Morality might not create big ripples in the vast ocean of deathcore but I can see this being the start of greater things, they got the tools for it.
