The new album daringly redefines In-Quest's sonic foundations and introduces a more melodic, organic and massively layered approach to songwriting. It could be described as a continuation of technical 'Epileptic' enthusiasm combined with the distinct, emotional 'Comatose' fingerprint. Add to this the originality of the first 2 albums rediscovered, the cold 'Pyroclasm' brutality reinforced and a fresh, artistic & open-minded avantgarde attitude.
Vengeance, hatred and existential crises are the lyrical key themes that confront the listener with the phenomenon 'human' anno 2009. As such, "Made Out of Negative Matter" is about mankind, the most unfaithful breed of animals.
To translate this concept into imagery, In-Quest re-approached Dennis S. (DamnEngine/2004 'Epileptic'). Futuristic and cold, the album cover shows a metaphorical black hole, sucking up all matter and feeding on it.
