While still distinctly Black Metal in outlook, with each album INFESTUS pass through another obscure void of estrangement towards a clearly identifiable realm of tangible pain. ‘Thrypsis’ removes another layer of murk, exposing the metallic core with frightening clarity.
Murderous aggression and grand neo-gothicism, geometric structures of super-tight thrash/death-informed riffing and a stunning symbiosis between volleys of unrelenting drums and unhinged vocals give way to rich tapestries of flowing leads, atmospheric singing, stately piano and evocative acoustic ambiance - all blessed with crystalline production so every note hits true.
