A concept album about a gothic insane asylum and evil goings on. Musically, it’s a stunning mash-up of [Edge of Sanity‘s] Crimson, Damnation-era Opeth, Omnium Gatherum, Mercyful Fate and even King Crimson. There’s some ominous and deadly death here, but interspersed with a lot of 70′s prog, gothic touches and traditional metal, with Swano showcasing his massive death roar and clean singing voice equally and to great effect. What makes The Inheritance truly shine is how well crafted the songs are. Instead of sounding confusing or patched together due to the disparate influences and ideas, the songs flow wonderfully, the transitions from death to prog feel smooth and seemless and each song is loaded with interesting ideas and great playing.
