INFERI is an American melodic death metal band forged from the bowels of Nashville, Tennessee. The band formed in 2006 and strived to merge the classic melodic metal sound with a taste of crushing technicality. After releasing Divinity in War in 2007 and The End of an Era in 2009, lead guitarist, Malcolm Pugh (A LOATHING REQUIEM, Ex-ENTHEOS, Ex-DISKREET, Ex-ENFOLD DARKNESS) decided to reignite the fire. Recruiting Mike Low (OUBLIETTE, Ex-ENFOLD DARKNESS) on guitar and Jack Blackburn (Ex-VITAL REMAINS, Ex-ENFOLD DARKNESS) on drums, the plan was clear - musical annihilation.
INFERI sets themselves outside of the generic pack by mixing melodious, yet technical musicianship with virtuosic songwriting rarely since in today's extreme metal acts.
