In the dynamic world of death metal, Portugal's Inner Blast stands out with their latest EP, "Memories Uploaded," a compelling blend of studio precision and live rawness. This release showcases the band's dedication to their craft, blending narratives of fantasy battles with stark realities of mental health struggles, all set against the backdrop of their distinct musical style.

Inner Blast's decision to include live tracks in "Memories Uploaded" was driven by a desire to offer listeners a taste of their electrifying stage presence. "We wanted to include some live themes on the EP so that those who have never seen us in concert can get an idea of what the band sounds like on stage," explains the band. These tracks, chosen from the launch concert of their album "Figiment of the Imagination," embody the energy and passion that define Inner Blast's live performances.

The EP features two original tracks, "Scourge and Fire" and "Master of Suffering," each delving into distinct thematic realms. "Scourge and Fire" weaves a tale of mythical battles, embodying classic narratives of good versus evil, while "Master of Suffering" takes a more introspective turn, addressing the harsh realities of depression. This thematic diversity reflects the band's ability to traverse various narrative landscapes through their music.

While Portugal's rich cultural tapestry does not explicitly influence Inner Blast's music, the band's creative process is deeply collaborative, with each member contributing to the final composition. This synergy allows for a diverse array of musical influences to permeate their work. "There are various musical genre influences on the EP, as we have differentiated musical references," the band notes, highlighting their genre-defying approach to music-making.

If "Memories Uploaded" could be encapsulated in a single word, it would be "MATURATION." This theme resonates throughout the EP, reflecting the band's evolution both musically and personally. Inner Blast emphasizes their desire to create music that is an extension of themselves, sharing their work with a sense of devotion and fulfillment rather than seeking external validation.

When asked about the creative risks in their music, Inner Blast maintains a philosophical stance, asserting that creativity knows no bounds. Each track has the potential to be a creative gamble, but the band embraces this uncertainty, valuing personal expression over adherence to conventional standards.

"Memories Uploaded" it's a journey through the band's musical and personal growth, a blend of live energy and studio refinement.
