Infestum - Monuments of Exalted

Infestum is a four piece band from Minsk Belarus. Members include, Ion the Saint (Vocals), Wrathtodd (Guitars, sound production), Werwolfe (Bass), Forneus (Drums). Genre is describe as Black Metal, Death Metal, Industrial, Experimental. 

Monuments of Exalted album released on Lacerated Enemy Records 2014. The album consist of twelve songs. The dark energy and intensity can be felt from the opening track. Black Metal in its purest form. A journey into the darker paths of the world. One of the most intriguing songs would be The Art of The Beast, you can't resist its rapture. The melody slips inside the deepest part of your conscience and infest you with its dark malevolence. Zero Beyond has some monsterous blast beats, blistering and devastating guitar riffs. The synth melodies towards the end of this track remind me of old Samael. Obsidiant Exile is an epic and destructive tune, it is a song that truly gets the blood pumping. Relentless fury flows through the speakers. A savage and maniacal creation, its a track that should be played at high volume and bang your head to. Production is great. Excellent drum sound, heavy and destructive guitar tone. Crushing bass sound. Vocals are oppressive and demonic. 

Final thoughts, I recommended for fans of Satyricon, Samael, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem and Emperor. The album is worth checking out and adding to your collection. ~Artemortifica
