Death's Embrace

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Spain has a well-known metal scene with thousands of acts, but I can't say I've ever heard any black metal from there, making 3-piece Inferitvm my first dose of that. Rather than the fast and grim Nordic style of black metal, Death's Embrace instead opts for an atmospheric and almost dreamlike approach that takes you to distant freezing galaxies of dying stars. This is largely due to the prominent synth work, which is constant and gives a real sense of creepy beauty to the songs, and Sorcerer V's sinister shrieked whispers almost sound like distant calls from the void as they cry out through a rough but audible production. I don't know if any one part of this is great, but it does have an identity all its own, and that's enough to make this worth embracing so it can carry you through the dark tapestry to distant worlds of ice and mysticism.
