Inspo - Space Between - Album Review - Modern Electronic Metal from Riga, Latvia

Today we are featuring a promising modern electronic metal band, Inspo, from Riga, Latvia. I have reviewed their debut EP, Space Between, along with its character, style, story, and potential.

Today I am talking about an impressive Latvian duo, that I've had the chance to discover about two weeks ago with their debut EP album, Space Between. As you might also remember from my previous articles that I am into progressive metal mainly, besides, I love listening to many different genres such as alternative and shoegaze. Surprisingly, Inspo with their solid character in their music caught me unprepared, reminded some artists, DJs, and bands I used to listen to such as Swedish House Mafia, Morgan Page, Dj Tiesto, and David Guetta. I am not a fan, yet I remember having a good time listening to all these talented names at some point.

First of all, I must admit that Space Between has a very similar approach in terms of songwriting with all these names I have mentioned above. Some of these incredible musicians have super progressive songs in their careers, and that was the reason why they caught my attention at that time. In this case, Inspo has the same character in their music, especially in this album. All these songs have huge commercial potential as well as they are quite progressive.

Musically, Inspo hasn't done something extraordinary here, yet Space Between is a fine example of this specific music style. If I need to be brutally honest with the style here, I'd call it having an amazing vocalist with a modern but fantastic modern vocal mix, djent/progressive metal instrumentation, commercial character in the sound, and powerful melodies. And they are as impressive as any of those established names with respectful discographies only with their debut EP. Well, this isn't something that you see happening very often. Hands down.

On the other hand, Space Between is musically on a point where it can be considered both, electronic or metal music. Some songs are similar to what Dj's usually do, having progressive metal instrumentation instead of electronic elements.

When I looked at their Spotify page, I realized that they've got satisfying streaming numbers on their songs, except Aspirations, where they show their djent and metal side only without any vocals. This means that Inspo's audience loves them mostly because of their commercial side so far, and I don't blame them. There are tons of modern progressive metal bands out there making music without any originality. Inspo, in this way, can become an important name in their specific field cause their musicality is good enough to attract everybody, not only metalheads.

Lastly, I'd like to congratulate the producer, audio engineer, studio assistant, delivery guy, guitar tech, coffee maker, and every single person who has taken part in the making of Space Between. I have to admit that the mix here is making the actual difference and this music style has got to have world-class standards in its production. Facts are facts. Space Between has the necessary standards just like in Dj Tiesto or David Guetta's music. Personally, I loved the vocal mix above everything else. This is such a beautiful voice that you can listen to without any instruments. I have never heard such vocals in metal, specifically with such mix before, which makes one of the important characteristics of Inspo's originality.

When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a good time listening to Inspo. A great-looking young duo with an impressive debut. I've got no weaknesses here to mention at all, on the contrary, I see bright things in Inspo's future!
