UNHOLY SOUNDS FROM UNHALLOWED GROUND I: THE INFERNAL SEA/OLD CORPSE ROAD - “INSIDIOUS ART AND SERPENTINE RIGHTS” (SPLIT 7”)
Those of you who know me, know that whilst I’m perfectly happy to review whatever crosses my desk… eventually (sorry Ten Ton Tabby, I will get to you soon!), what I really, REALLY like to listen to is the kind of noise that could strip the flesh from bones and curdle the milk in my tea.
As such, imagine my delight when this doozy reared it’s (horned, scaled and maggot-riddled) head. The Infernal Sea are the kind of music that will raise the hairs on the back of your neck, like the moment you hear footsteps from upstairs when you’re seemingly home alone.

The Infernal Sea - Tannis Root.
Now for those who are familiar with Call Of The Augur and The Crypt Sessions then you will know that The Infernal Sea are one's for the use of lengthy intro’s and outro’s, Which for a lot of people can be a bad thing but when it comes to The Infernal Sea it is well needed to build atmosphere and effect for what is to follow. This song Tannis Root is no exception. Opening with the sound of what seems to be a demon reveling in a damp torture chamber slowly building to the point where the metal is released with a crash of thunder. The Infernal Sea’s black metal injected with death leaps out and goes straight for the throat. There is a very Gorgoroth style/sound in this song which would probably fit quite happily on Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt, though that is not to say that this song isn’t distinctly The Infernal Sea.
