Mancunian slam crew INGESTED have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time. Punishing beat-downs, epic riffage, guttural vocals and blistering speed are just some of the weapons in Ingested's musical arsenal. Their debut album "Surpassing The Boundaries of Human Suffering" was released in June 2009 and received critical acclaim from magazines such as Terrorizer (8.5/10), Metal Hammer (8/10) and Kerrang! (4/5).
Following the Summer release of their album, Ingested were chosen to open up the 2010 Bonecrusher European tour, headlined by US heavyweights The Black Dahlia Murder and featuring The Faceless, Carnifex and more. Known for a vicious live show, Ingested's skull crushing mix of death metal blastbeats and hardcore breakdowns will bulldoze you violently into the ground and leave you in a crumpled heap asking for more.
With appearances at Mountains of Death and Ghostfest under their belt, and support slots with bands such as Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre, Suffocation, Napalm Death, Suffokate, Veil Of Maya and many more, 2011 saw the highly anticipated sophomore release "The Surreption" mixed and mastered by Mick Kenney (Bleeding Through, Anaal Nathrakh) and featuring guest spots by Alex Erian (Despised Icon, Obey The Brave) and Matthew Jones (Martyr Defiled). It was a heavier, more mature and undoubtedly darker offering from the northern slam kings. In support of the release for "The Surreption", Ingested tore up Europe with label mates Martyr Defiled and Annotations Of An Autopsy for noTOURious and also headlined the "Harbingers Of The End" tour around the UK.
Ingested entered 2012 with the same ferocious intent to play everywhere and anywhere, with high profile festival slots such as Extreme Fest featuring Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish and Carnifex, but while spending most of 2013 writing their follow up to “The Surreption”, in the form of a four track EP “Revered By No One Feared By All' ...2014 was to be another successful year for the young British five piece. 2015 now sees Ingested return with their heaviest offering yet in the form of ”The Architect Of Extinction”, mixed by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) and featuring mind blowing artwork from Toshihiro Egawa (who also did the artwork for the band’s debut record).
