INFINITAS – “CIVITAS INTERITUS“ (Folk Heavy Metal)
These five Swiss Metal individualists hail from the picturesque Muotathal. In 2009, the initiators founded their extraordinary band INFINITAS. The first concerts were followed by new songs. In 2015, the participants debuted with the 3-track EP ‘Self-Destruction.’ In the following, the intentionally willful and stylistically open yet very organic style developed relatively quickly: melodically catchy loaded FOLK HEAVY METAL with functionally guided Thrash Metal attacks.
The conceptual work ‘CIVITAS INTERITUS’ dances courageously out of line. The formation shows its abilities with these lively debut album on an audibly more mature and stable level. And the completely unpredictable mixture of the quintet is not only full of agile surprises, but INFINITAS also make the whole thing appear as from a single cast! The fact that various memories of the British Folk Metal pioneers Skyclad gets awakened, serves descriptive above all as a useful genre guide.
Officially, ‘CIVITAS INTERITUS’ was published on May 5th, 2017.
The striking, concise and extremely powerful voice of frontwoman Andrea sings the compositions with all dedication. And, with her solid vocal repertoire, she also shows itself extremely changeable and multifaceted. The complex arranged, elaborate staged interplay of guitar, violin, bass and drums cooperates in an ingenious way. By means of equally present strings, the Swiss give their songs a charming and finely decorating folklore color. Laura brings with her e-recorder additional, playful-dreaming nuances.
