Southern California metal band Cerebellion is not one to be ignored. The group’s unique approach to writing music is something of an anomaly these days. The best one could do at labeling them is to simply call them “metal” for they cover too broad a spectrum to squeeze them into one of metal’s sub-genres.
It is actually Cerebellion’s contempt for rules that drove the writing for their debut album, Inalienable. Yet, despite its creative diversity, critics agree that Cerebellion’s identity remains unwavered, delivering a cohesive sound throughout each of its songs. Don’t be mistaken; this is a heavy band by any standard! But expect to drive outside the lanes, onto the shoulder of the road during your journey. There will be moments where you drive completely off the cliff and float up into space before landing right back on the rocky road you started on. Inalienable is precisely that: a journey. It is an album, not a collection of songs, and is best when listened to in its entirety.
