Inferno are a band from t he Chzech Republic that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being occult black metal but with some more modern and psychedelic elements on this release and this is a review of their 2013 album "Omniabsence Filled By His Greatness" which was released by Agonia Records.
"Pervasion" begins with some distorted sounds and dark psychedelic elements and serves as an intro for the album.
'The Firstborn From Murk" begins with some blast beats, fast, raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar riffs along with some distorted melodies which also lead to some deep growls and high pitched screams being thrown into the music and after a couple of minutes the music slows down a little bit and adds in some clean elements before reverting back to the fast and heavy sound along with some guitar leads being utilized and midway through the song the music goes into a slower direction again while being a little bit heavier this time around but also does return to the faster parts at times as well as mixing in some psychedelic sounds and then going into a softer direction and adding in some synths and after awhile you can hear some spoken word parts being utilized in the background before returning back to a heavier sound.
"The Funeral Of Existence" begins with some heavy and melodic guitar riffs along with some drums before adding in some experimental elements then t he music goes more into a black'n'roll direction and then the music speeds up and also mixes in some brutal sounding melodies which lead to some grim black metal vocals kicking in and after awhile the music slows down a bit while also remaining heavy at the same time and a few minutes later the music starts adding in some cleaner and atmospheric elements before reverting back to its fast and primitive roots.
"Revelations Through The Void" begins with some fast and heavy black metal guitar riffs along with some blast beats and then the grim vocals kick in as well as some psych elements and you can also hear some melody being utilized in the guitar riffing which also leads up to some powerful sounding bass guitars when the music slows down and goes into a more atmospheric direction and a few seconds later the music starts getting fast again and then switching back and forth between slow and fast parts.
'The Heretical Fissure Of The Most Distant End" begins with some melodic drone sounds and then some synths and psychedelic sounds make their way into the song which also leads up to some drum beats and background chanting before adding in some heavy guitar and bass riffs and then the music gets alot more faster along with some brutal sounding blast beats and melodic guitar riffing but the music gets the clean and psychedelic elements around while also adding in some deep grim black metal vocals and after a couple of minutes the music slows down for awhile, as the song moves on there is a brief use of guitar leads along with th e music getting fast again shortly after that.
"Metastasis Of Realistic Visions" begins with some melodic guitar riffs, psychedelic sounds and drums and then some deep black metal vocals make their way into the song before going into a faster direction along with some brutal sounding blast beats and grim screams as well as some melodic guitar riffing which also mix in some technical elements as time goes on by before going into a mid paced and slower direction which alos leads to t he bass guitars sounding more powerful.
Song lyrics cover darkness, metaphysical and occultism themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can for the most part hear all of the musical instruments t hat are present on this recording along with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Inferno and if you are a fan of black metal with psychedelic elements, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Firstborn From Murk" "The Heretical Fissure Of The Most Distant End". RECOMMENDED BUY.
