Inferit are a German Black Metal band that base their sound around second-wave acts like Mayhem and Immortal, and they do it pretty well for all that. The guitar work has the expected pummeling riffs and tremolo picking sections, the atmosphere is cold and hateful, and the vocals are mostly a blackened bellow with the occasional melodramatic baritone thrown in that probably sounded less silly on paper. The album actually starts out pretty strong with the excellent opener "Darkness Descends", a song whose freezing melodies and epic atmosphere would do Abbath proud. However, despite some solid riffs and arrangements, the band never reaches this high again and starts to lose steam with subsequent songs, which can be a bit disjointed and overstay their welcome later on. I can't say Inferit are a great band, but if they could tighten up their arrangements and write more songs like their opener, I think they could be. Worth a listen.
