If you like Moonspell, Tiamat and Theatres Des Vampires this is your blood.
Club Inferno has announced the signing of the Venezuelan Gothic Metal band Infestus. They will take care of the digital distribution and promotion of Infestus' EP titled "Dresses Of Darkness" ready to be released officially on June 6th, 2017.
Infestus’ music can be defined as Gothic Black Metal with mysterious and dark opening to real darkness and anguish through the gloom and the rage already walked by band like Moonspell, Tiamat and with strong references to the Vampiric essence of Cradle Of Filth and Theatres Des Vampires.
These five talented and skilled musicians from South America are ready to tred the path of Gothic Black Metal and "Dresses Of Darkness" is the first example of what they are going to show.
After Epidemia from Ecuador comes another Death Metal beast, this time from Venezuela, on the same label. Satanath Records is definitely on to something and the music here is too good to be overlooked. One of the songs was exclusively premiered by the deputy editor over at Transcending Obscurity webzine HERE.
Venezuelan Death Metal band Evil Reborn have probably released the best meat and potatoes Death Metal album of the year. Fans of pummelling, catchy and extremely rifftastic death metal are going to eat out of their hands. This is comparable to all the 'cool' Death Metal bands that you grew up listening to, except that this isn't shamelessly old school and is even semi-technical to an extent. It's perfect, in other words, without veering too far into the progressive or brutal regions. Sinister, Malevolent Creation, Deicide, Monstrosity and Cannibal Corpse are all bands that come to mind when listening to Evil Reborn but they're not directly derivative to any - they just keep innovating using the best kind of ingredients.
The songs on this debut full length are seriously engrossing to the extent that you lose track of time and even reality. It's just shocking to come across death metal that's so pure in essence and of the kind that just leaps at you and grabs you by the throat from the moment you press play. This bodes tremendously well for the future of death metal from Venezuela. It's masterfully done.
