Infernal Tenebra are a band from Croatia that has been featured before in this zine and had their start as a black metal band but have added elements of melodic death and thrash metal into their musical style over the years and this is a review of their 2016 album "As Nations Fall" which was released by Massacre Records.
Atmospheric sounds start off the album and after a minute the music goes into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction as well as adding in blast beats into the faster sections of the music and when vocals are added into the music they are mostly death growls while some high pitched screams are utilized and they bring in a touch of black metal.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads that are utilized are very technical and clean singing can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and as the album progresses synths can be heard and they give the music an atmospheric feeling and some songs also bring in acoustic guitar and the influence of thrash is strong throughout the recording.
Infernal Tenebra creates an album that moves further away from their black metal roots while still having that influence but moving more towards melodic death and thrash metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Darkness and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Infernal Tenebra and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Catharsis" "Cross The Line" "The End Justifies The Means" and "Black Sun". 8 out of 10.
