Infernal Diatribe are a band from India that plays a very spiritual and occult form of black metal with some death metal touches and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Videha Mukti" which will be released in June by transcending Obscurity Distribution.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard giving the music more of a raw feeling while the vocals are very grim yet high pitched black metal screams and melodies can also be heard in some of the riffs and bring in a Swedish influence to the bands musical style.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they stick to a very melodic musical direction and some of the fast riffs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t he recording and the songs also bring in some death metal influences along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Infernal Diatribe plays a style of occult black metal t hat is very raw and melodic while also adding in a slight touch of death metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very raw yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover the left hand path and the Aghori path of Moksha.
In my opinion Infernal Diatribe are a very great sounding spiritual, occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t his ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Demonic Gasping Mortal Nightmare(Wisdom)" and "Morbidd Evocation". 8 out of 10.
