The Eternal Infernal

Rated 3.25/5 (65%) (4 Votes)

Grandiose Malice was a short-lived black/death metal band fronted by a gentleman who went by the stage name of Tregenda and The Eternal Infernal is a collection of demos he sent to friends prior to his untimely death in a car accident. Hells Headbangers brought the music together, at the behest of those friends, for a proper release.

The songs on The Eternal Infernal are 100% pure and ferocious black/death with savagely abrasive guitars and possessed vocals. The songs on the first half make effective use of tempo changes to keep them interesting and show off things like the sharp, squealing solos. By the second half, Grandiose Malice is going pretty much full tilt and to my ears it becomes little more than noise. I can deal with it in small doses, especially cuts like "The Messenger" and "The Illusion" with their evil, brooding breakdowns, but even at a mere 35 minutes, the whole thing is a chore.
