L'Infinito Abisso Dell'anima – In Viva Morte Morta Vita Vivo (2017)


Delivering one of the most savage and demoralizing Black Metal experiences of 2017, today we have Italy’s L'Infinito Abisso Dell'anima and their release “In Viva Morte Morta Vita Vivo”. Featuring over 44 minutes of punishing music, this band perfectly blends barbarian BM with some hints of melodic/depressive BM influences. Not for the faint of heart, this release will blow the lid off your speakers and have you begging for mercy.

Opening with the highly poignant riffs of “Condannato All’Oblio”, this outfit unleashes a relentless fury filled with a punishing intensity. The vocals perfectly fit the sense of urge and pain transmitted through the intense guitarwork and intricate drum patterns. Settling into the band’s sound, “Spiragli D’Ombra” takes a more melodic and darker shape, thanks to mid-tempo passages filled with melancholy and hate. It is quite impressive how effective the band is at transmitting raw emotion.

Midway through the release, “Quello Che Resta” brings back a more intense approach with melodic guitar leads with a demoralizing brutality and pace. We particularly enjoy how the band switches up the tempo throughout this track, allowing for their melodic elements to shine while pummeling the listener with incisive vocals and crushing riffs. In a more experimental manner, “Nenia” features a piano intro and female voices leading into a more typical old-school Black Metal passage and then fading into more melodic and atmospheric territories filled with intricate percussions.

Saving one of the best for last, “Vertigini” is one hell of an intense track that features both brutal and incisive riffs, perfectly mixed with atmospheric elements and unique vocal styles that make this song quite engaging and definitely the best in this release. Overall, “In Viva Morte Morta Vita Vivo” is a triumphant release that showcases a highly refined band with a unique style. If you like well adorned brutality, you will enjoy how this release weaves back and forth between harsh and demoralizing Black Metal and more atmospheric and melodic elements.
