The Warlock

Rated 3.86/5 (77.14%) (7 Votes)

I really enjoyed Inferitvm's most recent album, Death's Embrace, so I decided to dig a little deeper and check out their 2015 debut, The Warlock. Stylistically, it seems this band has always been about grim, atmospheric Norwegian black metal somewhere between De Mysteriis Dom Satanas and Pure Holocaust if it were a bit more melodic, and it's kind of surprising to hear it being made from a group located on the isolated Balearic Islands (Spain), let alone hearing them do it this well. This is a band that's never content with just blasting and screeching, instead making well-structured, well-played tracks like the violent "Thrall," the early Immortal-esque "Hull" and "Tree of Misery," and the moody, experimental "Our Demons." I don't know if these guys are reflective of the Spanish black metal scene at large, but I can say that they've been making second-wave worship better than a lot of second- and third-rate acts I could name from the very beginning, and they certainly deserve more attention than they've received so far. A solid start for a solid band.
