about

Inferi Nashville, Tennessee

Inferi is an American melodic death metal band forged from the bowels of Nashville, Tennessee. The band formed in 2006 and strived to merge the classic melodic metal sound with a taste of crushing technicality. The band sets themselves outside of the generic pack by mixing melodious, yet technical musicianship with virtuosic
songwriting rarely seen in today's extreme metal acts.

Track Name: Within the Dead Horizon
Within the Dead Horizon


arise my servants, my slaves 
exclaimed by the lord of atrocities 
bodies the soul left unclaimed, rotting away 
empty and ripe for the taking 
to exercise thou blackened will 
thine corpses unearth 
rise forth from the summoning 
an army of undead cretins pour from the earth 

beyond the dead horizon 
feeding the river of woe 
a cantus of coins to pay the toll 
upon the ferrymen’s vessel 
within the dead horizon 
the abduction of wandering souls 
left to atone as revenants 
in their bodies enslaved forever 

pestilent armies will coalesce 
feasting on the blood of mortal flesh 
minions of the underworld unveil 
the embrace of armageddon 
pestilent armies will coalesce 
feasting on the blood of mortal flesh 
minions of the underworld create 
boundless devastation 

awakened from the clutches of infinity 
his mission, not yet complete 
the slayer of cerberus himself must come forth 
to purify the aftermath 
of the hellhound’s defeat 

[m. pugh solo] 

beyond the dead horizon 
feeding the river of woe 
the excrement of the netherworld 
overflow in a vast formation 
within the dead horizon 
the abduction of wandering souls 
left to atone as revenants 
in their bodies enslaved forever 

deprived of judgment wandering souls 
succumb to calls of the 
incantation of the resurrection

[m. low solo] 

deprived of judgment 
their wandering souls 
succumb to calls 
of the flesh
Track Name: Condemned Assailant
Condemned Assailant


drawn into the labyrinth
of those damned by lust of the flesh
naked, tattered and tormented bodies
ripped apart
by the howling shriek of a whirlwind
ensnaring a deviant kind
threshing about forevermore

minos, then whispered to him,
“you are now prisoner here!
condemned to the boiling of blood
for the souls you’ve bestowed upon us
in the wickedest ways
from war-ridden days on the earth
sentenced in the past to a lifetime eternally.
this assailant now ours for eternity”

banished to the underworld
but the judge could not foresee
he was an enemy and he’s come to slay his king
from beyond the gates i have come for victory
i am the enemy and i’ve come to slay your king

[solo m. pugh]

the judge kneeled to submit
to present an offering
hold back to watch him plea
as he grovels on his knees
“in exchange for all your mercy
i will grant you amnesty”
but the lies between his teeth
hold a stench of fantasy

[solo m. low]
[solo m. pugh]
[solo m. low]
[solo j. schwallier]

engulfed by a maelstrom of lustful dead
he snatched out the tongue from the judge’s head
putting his limp serpent body to use
he strangled minos with his tail like a noose

eyes grown darker appearing shallow and thin
life is seeping forth from the dead vessel within
i’ve freed them all from this cretan
i’ve freed them all

condemned assailant
will release the weight off of the crown
nothing will sway him on his path to cocytus
he is bound

with blood drying fast on his fingertips
his vigorous yearning to massacre wickedness
nothing can stand in his way
on this journey to slay the beast
not even the hand of god
not even the hand of god
Track Name: A Beckoning Thrall
A Beckoning Thrall


a voice from the past cries out to him,
“drink the blood and taste the flesh”
with no one to fight and nothing in sight
he reluctantly heeds the call

[solo m. pugh]

“the guardian of this realm
vanquished and slain
by my blade which i wish to regain
‘twas not my will to take his life
nor my lust for blood”

it beckons from the lake of phlegathon
once obtained by the hands this demigod

the blade’s hunger, whispers in his ear
“together we’ll eradicate all of your fears
your enemies will drench in the shadow of your reign
supreme you’ll be as they bow to their king”

it calls him from the lake of phlegathon
once obtained by the hands this demigod
reunite they must
it’s their destiny to rule both hell and the heavens

a voice from the past cries out to him
“to drink the blood and taste the flesh”
with no one to fight and nothing in sight
he knows his mind is lost

a beckoning thrall
leads him deeper through the chasm
pressing forth willingly to gain true power
to gain true power

beneath his feet in a slush of putrefaction
lie the gluttonous souls of dead sinners
reaching out for him to save them
but their souls are lost
their cries are useless to them
frothing like dogs

[solo m. low]

a void of darkness swells inside of his chest
as his hunger grows for the power he once possessed

the last flicker of his soul resides
still pure and deep within
immersed in bloodlust
and buried by the blade’s deception
twisted in its lie
deeper through the hollows he must return
his fate now aligned
Track Name: Through the Depths
Through the Depths


[solo m. pugh]

he travels deeper into the cursed nether
his eyes endowed with disbelief
a sea of lost souls gather here
in the quartus ring of endless avarice
victors of misfortune
suffering all but rapturous

he travels deeper into this cursed realm
as he proceeds through the atrocity
smitten by the blight of the damned

only to gain the powers that be
a hand must be dealt to seal a prominent fate
a sea of lost souls gather here
in the quartus ring of endless avarice

[solo j. malone]

dignitaries clash with no anger or rage
dispirited grunts echo
blank faces struggle under the weight
without notice without care
to our warrior’s entrance
this cavern of endless exhaustion

movement catches the eye
shrouded tendrils begin to oscillate
toward the end of the cirrus
sits a man with a crown
intrigued by his guest in his palace
in the world of dead champions
as the deity announces his presence
plutus thirsts for dominance and remains
unbound by the partitions of this realm
the measure of power by the weight
of ones earthly claims

[solo m. pugh]

an offer was stated
bringing balance to the tides
the beast of greed is taken aback
whilst evil is dancing it must still be slain
only to gain the powers that be
a hand is dealt to seal a prominent fate

[solo m. pugh]

fulfilling the decrees of the prophecies
that dwell in the clutches of time
with hoarding and plunder lest ye benign curse by design
a divine comedy to indulge in this never-ending agony

verbal agreements pass through their teeth
drenching thine ethics with corrosive filth

greed cannot fill this bottomless pit
his efforts are endless as all life will wilt
breathless endeavors gasping for air
these lies become snakes that coil your throat
the ending is further than others have dared
the waves that have come to engulf in despair

to the depths i will guide you
for a debt you will pay
through the depths i will guide you
to the one you must slay
Track Name: Enraged and Drowning Sullen
Enraged and Drowning Sullen


cycles of livid death in the shallows of the stygian marsh
toiling with dying breath true horrors of the trapped souls
below that of a seething cauldron
drowning beneath, bereft and sullen
never to breach the surface forever to suffer 

tides of murk churn
somatic beings of wrath flail
striking one another, violently surging forth as one
true human form be it vile
the aversive hostiles look on to me
resentment an ebb from thine eyes

blessed be the womb that bore thee
in weeping and grieving may you long remain
blessed be the womb that bore thee
accursed spirits may your plights be in vain
shackled to the depths and the violence you crave

[solo m. pugh]
[solo m. low]

city of dis, demise
we enter secure in our cause
barriers jut from the murk
the mire with red embers smolder
forming lit towers that scrape the sky
endless are fields with tombs ablaze
everlasting in eternal flame
heretics of heaven, blasphemers of god confined

all give out a low moaning wail
crestfallen to the bed of thy flame

those who hath fallen from heaven await
the guardians of dis
deny entrance through the city
forewarns of death, to never leave from this fallen estate

a thousand serpent furies defend at the gates
infernal demons refined
from flesh to mist with sword and fist
an effortless subsequent
storm of the city of dis

[solo j. schwallier]
[solo m. pugh]

the guardians stood in his way
every one of them stood to be slain
while crushing their bones into dust
those that remain will cower in vain
all of the guardians stood in his way
every one of them stood to be slain
the only true god a warrior trusts
stains on his blade the color of rust

the harbingers of death
chant for dying breath
the enraged and drowning sullen
soak in the remains
of the guardians who’ve fallen
Track Name: Thy Menacing Gaze
Thy Menacing Gaze


as if this all was for not
the journey, the knowledge, the objective sought
seeking the power transforming by force
I’ve given myself to this savage onslaught

words cast aside as the violence emerges
weapons drawn from sheaths as vitality surges
a crown of serpents forces conflict
accompanied by minions striking forth mortally quick
as black as night, my will to fight
all before me shall perish

a trio of beasts whose grisly heads I shall claim
the wicked must learn its place amongst the lame
decapitate to castrate, thy weapons removed
mortal flesh of mine, beasts wish to consume

ice like stares penetrates the air
beckoning gestures of rage
surrounded am I, long lost my fear
enemies drawn close as death strides near
keeping thyne resolve sharp as thy blade
not worn by my path I’ve not journeyed in vain

as the relics of disaster ward off the assault
sculpted are the fallen, statues of stone
allow me this asylum as I strike through the bone

the venom of hate that flows
violently coursing through the veins
deadly grasp of claws unrelenting in pain
strengthened by courage, minions be slain
venomous vipers you shall know my name

thy menacing gaze shall be shattered by my blade
thy menacing gaze of lifeless remains

[solo m. low]

as if this all was for not
the journey, the knowledge, the objective sought
seeking the power transforming by force
I’ve given myself to this savage onslaught

tearing eyes from shallow sockets
spewing guts of crimson, flowing like faucets
sword shines shimmering red
each gash I take removing thy head

pulse of stone
beheaded and cast down from thy throne
sterilized, discarded your tomb now my throne
pathways unguarded
I am the victor as you grow cold

[solo m. pugh]

pulse of stone
beheaded and cast down from thy throne
sterilized discarded your tomb now my throne
pathways unguarded
I am the victor as you’ve grown cold
Track Name: Malevolent Sanction
Malevolent Sanction


terra tribus annulos,
primus, the river, a nile of coagulated encrusted shores
blisters boil from flesh to blood
beyond sight stretched the streams of gore
hideous spawn, nessus the damned, deemed to guide
head of an ox and body of man
punishment for the most heinous of crimes
reveal the path upon which we shall bride
through the forest of mors voluntaria

to live like gods with a tyrannous reign
to walk the earth enraged whilst delivering pain
murder finds justice in the fire of the brook
smolder in the blood of every life that you took

murderous executions, decimators of life
perpetually captive to blood spilling innocents with spite
sodomized in the Phlegathon’s malevolent sanction
forever the lungs of the butcher internally filled with flame
for great is the pain
searing of flesh with the smoldering breath
and the scorching of futile remains

apotheosize their extinction, glorifying their eternal death

secundum circulum, blackened and withering husks
protruding toxic thistles seeping of obsidian sap
as hisses turn to wails, destruction and suicide entails
soak in their sinful death

pass the final judgement they will remain
no carnal resurrection here
their festering corpses on limbs of thorn will hang
damnation beyond eternity they fear
roots sprout misfortune, nourish affliction, stretch thy skin
disfiguration at the crust thickets grow within
growing ever stronger, self-hatred shall bloom
vines of self-loathing and bitterness resume

[solo m. pugh]

in the heart a heretic regret gives birth to cries
cynics of the holiest temples scorched on the sand supine
viscous flow the fires smelting sluggish in the sky
like branches choked by honey as it’s seeping from the hive
consuming the flesh all but skeletons are left

regeneration of their bodies will fill the belly of
carnivorous embers

sodomites sink in this barren earth
flakes of ash in a gust like a blizzard
suffocate the lungs of the usurer
storms of fire rage in oblivion

[solo m. pugh]

decem regna malum, ten realms of the Malebolge we face
beware less thee be devoured
vivid is the scythe brought by death to this place

to live like gods with a tyrannous reign
to walk the earth enraged whilst delivering pain
the bell tolls immensely in the fire by the brook
through the gates he must wander again
Track Name: Smolder in the Ash
Smolder in the Ash


softened bodies lashed to the bone
bludgeoned blue and black
and the nine-tails, as they walk endlessly
snatch the flesh off their back

sycophant fawners bathe, tirelessly astray
stewing forever in excrement and soils of man

Simonist, corrupt false men of the cloth
cast down face first into the rock below
lower extremities bursting ablaze
venomous and fraudulent malcontents
strode across this wasteland

against their god they commit their crimes
through the thickets of sorrow
past the sands of time
punishment must be dealt
for their sorcery, treachery and lies

for the riches and limitless wealth
built on the backs of swine
servants of the land in boiling tar
to be scorched at his command

heavy are the cloaks of gold
each thread sewn of lead
affliction for duplicitous words misled
no redemption for hypocrites
forever march bound to their shrine
the pharisee’s crucifix

striving to be human once more
taste of the flesh and assimilate their form

[solo m. pugh]

deceivers of the world will serenade
their pillars of ash wail tongues of the flame
one with the fire, molten cage
smolder in the ash of eternity
shrilling screams befriend their agony
suffer for deceit never to receive empathy

[solo j. schwallier]
[solo m. low]

gaping wounds
softened tissue receive lacerations
by a demon’s sword
sowers of discord
laid waste by a demon’s scorn

falsifiers draped in disease
reside, plagued by the sins of their deeds
decaying with leprosy and boils on their flesh
to decompose and fester at their behest
Track Name: Behold the Bearer of Light
Behold The Bearer of Light


[solo m. low]

at last glistening light rains upon me
from a crevice in the cavern shines through the debris
on this day this odyssey concludes setting me free

[solo m. pugh]

the vast chasm holds the remains of a frozen lake
a usurper’s dominion
bound waist down by frosted chains
the fallen angel’s bane
through the eyes of the demon, I see myself
my bloodthirsty sword pointed forward
thunder it seems
ripples atop the ice as Lucifer speaks

“come forth, my child
you hold the key to release me from this misery
strike me down and steal my crown
taste my power’s true majesty”

son of the dawn
the morning star
beelzebub, the wicked one
abaddon

[solo m. low]

indulged by a madness, betrothed to his death
with only himself to blame
as he approaches, their powers coalesce
awaken an ancient flame

“a congregation your presence bestowed
the blade thou hath unsheathed is part of me
as are you, my son, my seed, I profess”

with the sword forged from the heart in his chest
violently restored by the flesh born from his soul
the revenant rebirth

on contact, he saw himself lose his own life
through the eyes of the dark lord’s sight
he could see the convergence
absorbed betwixt the union of the fight
now one and the same, bringers of the light

[solo m.pugh]

rejuvenation by freedom from my chains
a declaration I shall proclaim
storm all life on the earth
at will, reform the heavens

light bearer, the heavens mourn
light bearer, I am reborn
light bearer, I am reborn
light bearer, the heavens mourn
