Out of a long black veil, and a 9-year hiatus, Thuringian black metal lunatics, 'Infaust,' return properly equipped with their 3rd album. Already tracked and finalized between 2011 and 2014 (with mastering duties taken over by AOD - Temple of Disharmony), 'Verblichen' (Faded) marks a return to form, ruling out every doubt of changes or modern attitudes. These seven black manifests of raw misanthropic energy and cold will seem to bleed seamlessly bleak from the audio cabinet. While firing off waves of raw & oppressive tunes, they create a vortex of death, decline and somber reflections on life. Manipulating and psychologically death-adoring lyrics wrapped in a stream of atmospheric rushing guitars, deep-roaring bass, and double vocal desperation. 'Verblichen' will not just enrich their catalogue with another plain number, it withstands trends in a time of hype and changing flavours. Old school black metal, pure black devotion.
