Black Metal from the Fenlands of East Anglia, UK. Terrifying & captivating wrenched from the bleak, flat nothingness that makes up much of the surrounding area native to The Infernal Sea.
The Infernal Sea draw influences from the founding fathers of Black Metal while firmly imprinting their own unique plague-ridden UKBM stamp. With British Bravado they inject their Black ‘n’ Roll groove into their savage riffage to create something truly diabolical.
New album ‘Negotium Crucis’ released September 18th 2020 (Apocalyptic Witchcraft) expands on the bands previously established concept of medieval brutally as presented on 2016’s ‘The Great Mortality’, which focused on the black death that swept across the UK and Europe from 1348 and the horrors that man inflicted upon one another as a result.
The band comment, ‘It is with great honour that we continue to forge our alliance with Apocalyptic Witchcraft, having worked with them closely over the past few years, we are keen to strengthen our working relationship, they understand what fuels The Infernal Sea, allowing us the creative freedom we require to push the boundaries of our compositions. After a decade of aggression we welcome the next chapter in our blackened career.’
Lyrically returning to the Middle Ages to explore the dark nature of the Knights Templar and their Holy Crusades. The album aggressively forewarns of tales of depravity, corruption, deceit, genocide and re-affirms the sadistic nature of mankind.
The band add, “The world we once knew has drastically changed, we live in fear of the unknown. As proclaimed Heralds of the plague, we warned of the oncoming darkness, a coincidence perhaps or strangely prophetic? The global pandemic is devastating society and with it the music industry is on its knees. We too have suffered delays at the hands of Covid-19, but we rise from the turmoil to unleash our forthcoming album ‘Negotium Crucis’. This album has been challenging, but we conquered all, delivering our strongest and most diverse work to date. Hail the darkness!”
An experimental album that bridges the gap between ‘The Great Mortality’ and ‘Agents of Satan’ EP. It showcases the progression and maturity of The Infernal Sea. This album is RAW, not only sonically but also in its production values. It captures the ‘Black ‘N’ Roll’ element that the band inject into their compositions, it is savage yet melodic and sounds undeniably like The Infernal Sea.
