PACT INFERNAL | Infernality (Horo)
After 2 successful, reputation forming EP’s (The Descent Chapter I & II), enigmatic musical entity Pact Infernal re emerge with their debut LP Infernality for Horo. Equal parts horror and simmering mysticism, the Pact Infernal sound has collected a base of devoted listeners including musical contemporaries like Lucy, Samuel Kerridge, Trepaneringsritualen, & Oake.
Infernality is an accomplished coming of age for Pact Infernal, a conceptual LP that brings together the elements that worked so well on both their EP’s into a robust, coherent statement. Beckoning, sinuous rhythms combine with smoky ambience and subtly anthemic riffs. The haunting percussion that has been a highlight of their past work often takes the lead, and in ‘Death & Rebirth‘, Pact Infernal have come up with their most infectious music so far. Album closer ‘Rites Of Passage‘ is a time capsule Pact Infernal track, perfectly combining their stylistic signatures into an essential bookend.
