The second album from Italian progressive/ alternative metal act Inedia would be my first exposure to the group, and these 8 songs send you on an aural odyssey to outer world regions. Be it morose, tribal, and culturally connective for the acoustic-oriented "Heat the Universe" or snake charming in bass parts while the arrangement builds and builds from electric intensity on the 7 minute "Snatch In the Paper Sky", you can tell Inedia appreciate everything from Tool and Faith No More to Opeth and Mastodon.
Primitive production values and guitarist Mattia Parolin’s semi-monotone, James Hetfield meets Lake Of Tears clean delivery take the quality of this left-field style down a couple of notches. Overall, "Human Meridians and Cohabitant Cores" takes abstract elements and fuses together a progressive vision in a somewhat soothing manner – so if those concepts meet your approval, Inedia welcome your aural attention.
