Arkhon Infaustus – Perdition Insanabilis

I haven’t heard much from this French band in the past; just a song here and there from a release or two, but what I heard always left me thirsty for more. Arkhon Infaustus is heavy, intense and able to create an evil aura within their music. Those are all things that I look for and appreciate in an underground band. They achieve this through a well balanced mix of both the black and death metal aesthetic with neither style overpowering the other. This is something that is obviously not as easily attained as one might think given the massive amount of bands that attempt it and fail. There are also different tempos used on “Perdition Iinsanabilis” to keep each song sounding fresh and alive. Some tracks clip along at a furious in your face pace while others take you on a slow winding demented path into the depths of your own mind. This is a good album with a solid production that should hold equal appeal to fans flung as far across the metal spectrum as those of Averse Sefira and Immolation. – Lance Rogers
