Very few seemed to notice these funk-metal-thrash prodigies, which is a crying shame! an experimental rock/metal/funk/prog outing that sees the band explore unusual melodies and original harmonies. At times, Innerstate are half decent alterno-metal/rock with rather light, dreamy, and at times psychedelic vocals that drift along like some kaleidoscopic movie, but occasionally a riff may cut in and a rasped vocal chop may puncture proceedings. On the other hand, check out the FNM-esque ‘Fisher Of men. The title track boasts a slightly heavier approach, with a Mordred-style crunch circa ‘Vision’.

Some people might say that it would be unfair to call this a metal album; they might say that it’s the type of rock album that might appeal to prog heads, and maybe those who were interested in the sickly sweet funkoid fad that swept through the metal genre in the early ’90s.

in 1991 a group of school friends from Redditch, Worcestershire, UK, formed InnerState to play their own heavy metal music. They recorded two albums with Roadrunner: A tell-tale trail in 1992 and Protest to the signs in 1993. The band supported the comedy heavy metal band, Green Jelly  on their European tour of 1993 and then split up the following year when their recording contract ended.
