Inferen are a band from Italy that plays a very traditional form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2018 album which was released as a joint effort between Vacula and Narcoleptica Productions.
A very epic sounding intro starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style but very modern at the same time along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody at times as well as a couple of the tracks being long and epic in length.
Battle and nature sounds can also be heard mixed in the heavier sections of the music briefly and as the album progresses a small amount of acoustic guitars and clean playing can also be heard while one track almost towards the end also adds in a small amount of melodic guitar leads..
Inferen plays a style of black metal that is very raw and traditional sounding, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Italian and cover apocalypse, darkness, death, evil, visions and doom themes.
In my opinion Inferen are a very great sounding traditional black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invocation" "Winter Rage" and "Inferen". 8 out of 10.
