ZT heave teamed up with W.T.C. PRODUCTIONS to present an exclusive stream of INFERNO‘s highly anticipated seventh album (which is released today), Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution). A work of almost impossible magnitude, INFERNO’s latest long-player sees this long-running Czech cult go from strength to strength, daring to dream beyond black metal whilst finding its innermost core, resulting in an opus which both scales feverish heights and plumbs fathomless depths – simultaneously. Simply, it is a work of both boundless beauty and even-more-boundless darkness.
Since the band’s conception in 1995, the musical and lyrical aspects of INFERNO have been guided by inner impulses that not many were able to comprehend. Now, after more than 20 years of existence, its members are endowed with such knowledge, experience, and skill that finally allow them to effectively portray the pervading greatness of powers from beyond and within. The heights of the spiritual ecstasy and abyssal depths of the unconscious were the main inspiration from which the musical tones and words came forth.
INFERNO’s seventh full-length to date, Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution) picks up the threads of the crucial previous recording Omniabsence Filled by His Greatness, presenting five new songs and one which concludes and opens the album at the same time. The band made a single step backwards to evaluate and explore the essence responsible for the previous opus in order to create an even stronger and more refined album.
