Eighteen Visions Announce New EP, Stream First Single
As recently hinted, Eighteen Visions are readying their second offering since reforming in 2017: they’ll release an EP called Inferno on October 2. You can pre-order it here. The track list is as follows:
- “The Wicked”
- “Thirty One”
- “Bleed the Sheep”
- “The Void”
- “Perils of Sin”
As the title suggests, the EP was inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, which is some really metal shit that definitely lends itself to loud, pissed-off music. In fact, this isn’t the first metal album to use Divine Comedy as basis for its lyrics — there’s also Sepultura’s 2006 album, Dante XXI. Bands like Iced Earth and Septicflesh have also used it as a jumping off point for individual songs.
