Nashville's INFERI make their Tribunal Records debut after first impressing the label with their independently released album, Divinity In War. Their newest creation, The End Of An Era, is even more remarkable in its use of enough melody to make it memorable, but still maintain high torque and brutal intensity. Even though tempos are excessively fast at times INFERI refuse to allow speed and technicality to overcome extreme precision. Not since the likes of Metallica's "The Call Of Ktulu" has a band attempted an 8+ minute instrumental track but more importantly deliver an anthem worthy of the metal ages.
INFERI are pioneers in this new age of metal, not reveling in what is popular and trendy, but more importantly reviving classic inspiration of the genre. The End Of An Era was mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Animosity, As Blood Runs Black and The Taste Of Blood) but even with such a talented engineer behind the desk INFERI decidedly strayed away from the all too common and now, sadly enough, overly produced modern metal sound for something more vintage, raw and in the end, truly metal. The End Of An Era is a daring and colossal step in the right direction to bring metal back to its long lost and too hastily forgotten roots.
