“INFERI” is a melodic death metal band that empowers their music with crushing techni-cality and creative songwriting, creating something truly epic. Hailing from Nashville, Tennesee, formed in 2006.

Sam Schneider (Abyss Walker, ex-Adelaide) does the vocals.
The band has also seen some lineup changes, with new additions including Joel Schwallier (Dawn of Dementia, Kossuth) on bass and Sam Schneider (Abyss Walker) on vocals.
The band has gone to releasing 4 albums in total: Divinity in War (2007), The End of an Era (2009), The Path of Apotheosis (2014), and Revenant (2018). (Revoneent)

“OUBLIETTTE”, American masters of melodic black/death metal are back four years after the release of their acclaimed debut album Apparitions and proudly present to you the next album “The Passage” through the label The Artisan Era and will be released on July 13th, 2018.
01. A Pale Innocence
02. The Curse
06. The Raven’s Lullaby (Lolabye)
08. The Passage
The sound of The Passage brings me to bands like Dissection, Alcest and early In Flames. This is a brilliant album, full of melancholy and beauty, with fast passages of black metal and a good dose of melodic death metal.
