This is absolutely top-shelf black metal with superbly well-integrated use of psychedelic elements. In the way that Oranssi Pazuzu is progressive psychedelic metal with minor elements of black metal, consider Inferno to be aggressive and melodic black metal with psychedelia infused throughout. This album also has a certain swagger in the way it moves forward, always commanding your attention. Finally, it is aggressive and subtle in equal measure, providing.a complete package. Essential.
Favorite track: The Heretical Fissure of the Most Distant End.
