From the realms of the metal underground, Croatian based death/thrash metallers Infernal Tenebra emerged in 2012 with the critically acclaimed album “New Formed Revelations”, released by Massacre Records, produced at Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren (Kreator, At The Gates, Amon Amarth) and featured in magazines like Metal Hammer, Terrorizer and Rock Hard.
Described by journalists as “heavy like a mammoth and furious like Morbid Angel” (Reinier de Vries – powerofmetal.dk), “on this mission to sound unique at all costs they go on quite successfully” (ROCK HARD Germany), an ”artisan-arranged complex and challenging endeavor” (METAL HAMMER Germany) with “the impeccably tight musicianship showcased here is dazzling” (Faye Coulman – Terrorizer UK), “Infernal Tenebra surely do represent a new league of technically skilled Modern Death Metal bands” (Ivan Tibos – ConcreteWeb).
The journey to music excellence continued with the 2016 album “As Nations Fall”, produced by Jens Bogren and released by Massacre Records. The album was well received and reached the “album of the month” in Powerplay magazine (UK).
Originating with pure black metal in the 1999, adding a death metal foundation in the following years, with two self-released albums “Beneath the Twilight” and “The Essence of Chaos”, the band was constantly pushing and evolving its sound with rock solid rhythms, dynamic and technical solos, powerful vocals and a distinct blend of melody, groove and sheer brutality.
Sharing stage and opening for a vast number of metal icons including Behemoth, Gojira, Kreator, Exodus, Fear Factory and Devin Townsend, the band is extremely passionate to play live shows. Infernal Tenebra played on big metal festivals like Bloodstock Open Air (UK), Metaldays (SLO), Brtual Assult (CZ), Metalhead Meeting (RO), Trondheim MetalFest (NO), PPM Fest (BE), Gothoom Open Air (SK).
The band did several tours during the last decade including the Japan tour in 2014 with Rotting Christ and Havok, 2016 European tour “Titans of death metal” with Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation and Abiotic, 2017 and 2018 European tour with Six Feet Under and a selected set of tour dates with Testament in 2016.
The new album entitled “Origins of Hate”, released on October 31st, 2022, brings nine new tracks, a refreshed lineup, an uncompromising attitude and precise execution, with tunes that are tailored for an intense listening experience. The album is mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Fascination Street Studios). The artwork for the album is the result of our close collaboration with Gustavo Sazes (Abstrata) and fits the mood and feel of the album perfectly.
With its dedication to music, compositions and performance Infernal Tenebra is the true monument of Croatian extreme metal music.
