InMe are a band that have seen it all, they have witnessed the sometimes seedy foundations of a major label, they have had many lineup changes, and have searched for that independent attitude and have found it with flying colors. They are one of the hardest working bands around. Focused on progressive rock, the band were once hailed as a nu metal success story, but now have changed their genre. The progressive rock style really works, it has a great sheen, it embeds the mind, and the guitar work is some of the best around. The independent mentality is what makes InMe, they do everything themselves, they are a great vehicle for other bands, an iconic band in the underground scene, tapping into different genres, and grinding and grinding to find the right sound, they have done so, their sound has no limits.

Coming out of the cold county of Essex in London, the band threw out their first album ‘’Overgrown Eden’’ in 2003, which was a wild turning point for the band. It was a commercial success, and had many singles including the contagious and epic ‘’Firefly’’ and the blaring, bashful, but sweet sound of ‘’Underdose’’ the band where on a great journey, but it all ended with deflation. The bands singles aired on MTV, which gave InMe exposure to the rock masses, but the band started to hate the attention, and the major label they where under started to tell them what to do, which angered InMe. So the breakaway happened, InMe went their separate ways, and took their sweet sound to the underground.

InMe is an animal guided by front man Dave McPherson, a quiet, humble, but ultimately talented individual that has geared InMe to where they are today, on the map with a smaller mileage, he is a leader of a band that are creating a sound that is fit for bigger and more momentous arenas, but their happy to be performing in smaller, intimate venues. 2005 was the year the butterfly was born, the butterfly with the most magical wings, fluttered and basked. White Butterfly was a real gem of an album; I was a golden crust, an album with so much emotion, so much grace, so much passion, it really was a turning point, a point to a different angle in the bands music. White Butterfly contained songs like ‘’7 weeks’’ ‘’Parting Gift’’ ‘’Angels With Snipers’’ ‘’Faster The Chase’’ every song really had a place, a statement, and a gracious swing, it was a defining album for InMe.

White Butterfly gave InMe a new template, a chance to outdo it. With Daydream Anonymous, which was released on the 10th of September 2007, it was an album that was quickly shunted. It never received the same aura as White Butterfly, but did contain some stompers such as ‘’Cracking The Whip’’ and single ‘’I Wont Let Go’’ it was an input that lost grip with past contributions, but it wasn’t bad, it had its ballads, it had its rock charms, but it never sparked a musical onslaught. The character of the album was a dark, misguided soul, with no path. By putting their heart and soul into everything, Daydream Anonymous was a progressive listen that gave the back chills in some points; it really had its highlights. InMe where ready to head back into the recording studio, they were ready to sharpen their claws, and were ready to bring forth their most progressive album to date.

2009 brought forward the release of Herald Moth, an album that was so conceptual, so progressive, and so technical. InMe enlisted guitarist Ben Konstantinovic for the birth of the album. The album was born with a sweet cry; it was a technical, guitar driven catalogue. With such songs as a ‘’Mouthful Of Loose Teeth’’ ‘’All Terrain Vehicle’’ ‘’Single Of The Weak’’ the album was something of a statement against the arrogant hierarchy. Overall, InMe have seen the backdrop of the music industry, they have fought against it. Four records on, the band are still going strong, still guiding away into different musical dimensions, with gritted teeth and belief.
