Album Review :~ Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution)

Czech Republic's purveyors of chaos,Ritual whispering ,invocation, wrath,bringer of darkness Inferno unleashed their seventh full length album entitled “Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution)” in the beginning of this month via World Terror Committee. Inferno have ended the quintet with a bang. Mixing black metal with esoteric,obscure,mysterious, introspective passages,dense otherworldly blasting,avant garde together was always their forte. New album is filled with more unearthly, astounding,critical acclaimed,heavy, claustrophobic misery ,enigmatic melodies. This new album is consist with 6 tracks.Basically Inferno was formed in 1996 . They have been slinging noxious, elevated Czech Republic's extreme metal scene. An ever-increasing number of black metal bands feature dissonance and accessibility in equally impressive amounts. Certain black metal bands were able to gain proper attention and actually attempt to cross both realms and unite them under one cohesive effort.Indeed Inferno is a well established group of bands who can make a fully sound and creative and with a lots of excellence,ritualistic,hatred,blasphemy in his lyrics,with well crafted,distinct content.After so long in existence they have gathered a wealth of experience and dark talents, which they liberally pour into their music.Now I’m straight diving to the point about this new album .
Their seventh incantations whole compositions are extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister euphoria and unearthly ambiance .when at first I’ve checked out their first released track “The Innermost Disillusion” from this album I was just overwhelmed and this album was one of my long awaited,anticipated album of this year . This bands each and every members are excellent musician appreciate their unsurpassed quality,ability and skill. All of their tremendous effort portrayed in this album in radiant way with excellent diligence and nailed it. After a multiple listen their latest studio effort  infused me with  their Unrelenting, powerful,blasting ,overarching,chromatic, chaotic , multi-layered ,ultra-dense,ritualistic, monolithic black metal musical style laced with atmospheric vibe just  blew me away .Inferno's collective wisdom and expels it as almost 45 minutes of shadowy artistry.Their musical style have a hypnotic effect and especially ritualistic,esoteric,arcane vibe which adds to the more atmospheric kind of black metal but at the same time the vocals and other parts of the riffing is straight forward blasphemous simultaneously .
This whole album reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this album . It is really not easy to describe their complex musical style . Black Metal with unconventional influences enjoys indeed tend quite popular .A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity. Despite the often mysterious ,furious,cacophonous ,heavy and barbarous form of black metal assaults  laced with dark eerie,gloomy  and occult  atmosphere with a lots of segments of slower,mid-paced tempo too where Inferno combines cavernous drum thrashes, melancholic guitars ,previously mentioned all  aspects  enriched this album that is very powerful,strong and excellent all at the same time along with a good  balance  of black metal music, melody and brutality with strangulated ,filthy,horrific riffs work and those effective chants simultaneously borrow blackened,gloomy,sinister vibe.Inferno know how to hone their aggression to deal some grievous wounds. I highly appreciate and embrace this album because of their distinct style .
well, this albums opening track “The Innermost Disillusion” starts with sonic assailment,obtuse,grotesque,atmospheric sound followed by an onslaught of tremulous ,dark eerie, savage riffs  and a wall of blast beating ,spectacular drums laced with aggression,deliberate cadence . Their whole composition and musical style is impeccable also borrow great atmosphere. They have injected ritualistic essence,obscure,arcane,esoteric vibes into blasphemous black metal style.Their musical representation evolves into souls wandering vicious, crushing and ominous wasteland . This whole album gives u pitch-black feel from beginning to the end and I warn you this is a gloomy journey.
This album is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic, squalid, ominous,hellish, crawling, slow but powerful riffs work . Drumming,percussion line up is bleak, frantic,solid,clattering and powerful . In each track breathtaking,morbidly delicious, scalding,macabre,soaring riffs,bass lineups matched in well manner with hellish,devilish chords and horror,mournful sounds are rightly used as an additional uncanny harmonic layer. The most striking thing you’ll notice about the sound of Inferno is the air of darkened auras, occult moods and haunting melodies that quite literally drips from the noise they create . This whole albums sound  deliver a dissonant,grim feeling,sinister,occult,gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy . “Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution)”  endures beauty of black metal . This album indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship . This album have a hypnotic effect on the listener . Vocals large, inhuman voice that does well for Inferno . Vocals howling scream, hoarse , immense voice and effective chants emerged on this album in a well manner and intertwined perfectly with their utterly  spellbinding,obtuse, mysterious,fully blistering, blasphemous, ritualistic, grandiose  black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric,occult,ritualization accompaniment  and  embedded perfectly . Here I want to mention Acherontas V.Priest because he also did additional vocals in this album. Overall you will get  sinister,gloomy,desolate,mysterious ambient from this whole album . I really worship this band .
Each song have an energy ,fluency .Stand out tracks are all of them . I personally Cherish The Innermost Disillusion,Upheaval of Silence,Ω ≻ 1 (Oscillation in Timelessness),Gate-eye of Fractal Spiral track those are remarkable,appreciable too.  Album artwork is atrocious,grisly, indelible . Overall “Gnosis Kardias (Of Transcension and Involution)” whole album is Spectacular,engrossing ,significant,rich,Spirituality full of evil, Scary shaking of dark vibration. This album sounds so authentic  and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end . Indeed this album is such an true gem of this year . I’ll say this whole album is aesthetics of black metal .Outstanding another one release of this year so far .This is highly recommend to add it in your collection .If you are looking for  something different, epic this pure unadulterated black metal utterance is perfect and it will pull out your soul from your body and take you on a journey into another universe . so, enter the void and I am sure definitely u will come out stronger,darker,gloomier than ever before.
