LATE TO THE PARTY: ANCIENT VVISDOM’S A GODLIKE INFERNO
I completely missed the boat on Ancient VVisdom’s A Godlike Inferno before The Deciblog premiered the band’s new video, “The Opposition” (above), this morning. The song is SO DAMNED CATCHY that I immediately went to check it out on Spotify (listen here), and, yep, the entire record is this good.
The Deciblog describes Inferno as “an incredibly earnest and catchy album that celebrates Satan’s glory obsessively,” which answers my first question, which was “Are these dudes for real?” But the more I listen to Inferno, the less I care whether or not the whole thing is kinda goofy. Really, this is the kind of album which will almost surely get stuck in my head for days and days and days, and might have even knocked something off of my 2011 year-end list if I’d heard it earlier.
A Godlike Inferno is out now on Shinebox. Ancient VVisdom, along with Blood Ceremony, will play support on Ghost’s upcoming U.S. headlining tour, which kicks off in January, and which I am now twice as excited for as I already was. Get dates here.
