Enlarge Get wise to the gems within the band's latest album, 'Vile Genesis.'

Exclusive Premiere: Inferi’s New Video for “Heirs of the Descent”


How do Inferi keep finding ways to continually invigorate technical death metal with new energy? We don’t have the answers to the band’s magic — we’re just lowly writers — but we encourage you to ponder that while you listen to their latest album, Vile Genesis, which came out in September via The Artisan Era (order here).

What we do have, however, is a brand new music video for the album track “Heirs of the Descent” premiering on MetalSucks today, as fine a blend of all the flavors Vile Genesis has to offer as any, from the brutal lows to the delicate highs and everything in between.

Guitarist Malcolm Pugh explains of the band’s latest visual accompaniment:

“I found this cabin in the outskirts of Nashville that was over a hundred years old and right in the middle of some creepy woods. This place was so broken down and eerie, I just knew we could get some really solid footage there. As we were hiking through the woods with all of the gear, Sam Raimi’s ‘Evil Dead’ kept popping into my head. It fit the vibe so well that we ended up filming additional shots to try and capture that feeling. The moral of the story is, It’s super fun turning your friend into a demonic zombie while playing with fire!”
