fezayafirar brings us "inat" which starts out with some some ambient style soundscapes and power electronics along with some elements of harsh noise and industrial. The track is also over 8 minutes in length and after awhile the music also gets more experimental and avant garde sounding as w ell as sticking to an instrumental musical direction and as the track progresses electronic music sounds and loops are added into the song.
