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: Gatherings in the Chambers of Madness
Golden rooms where fantasies come true flowing wine
And women stand in line waiting for you to make up your mind
The succubus will bleed you dry this is the ending of your feeble life

Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust
Cravings beset on those enchanted
Expose your weakness and they will grind your bones to dust
Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness

With intoxicating beauty, they hunt at night to find their prey
They prowl like wolves in the pale moonlight

A scent of seduction makes them so divine
Drawing you closer with blinded sight
And your instincts overcome
Nothing is left but for you to succumb

One by one they lead them into darkness where a chamber waits inside
Tempting you with fantasies and filling them with lies
Just one taste and then you will begin to close your eyes

Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust
Cravings beset on those enchanted
Expose your weakness and they will grind your bones to dust
Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness
At first glance this seems to be a dream come true
Pleasures of the flesh that mere man cannot fathom
Unveiling tragedy now torture will ensue
Behold the gatherings in the chambers of madness

In an instant your pleasure turns into your worst nightmare
Darkness, torture, and despair
Your stomach turns filling you with fear
You can close your eyes but you'll still feel the pain
You break your wrists trying to escape from your restraints
Witness the removal of your limbs
This must be the punishment for all your sins

There is no escape from this wretched place
You've surrendered your fate to the lust of the flesh
They will eat until nothing is left
Still alive to see the meat on the bone
Ripped and torn for a feast by the throne
Of the god who lives for immorality

Now is the time for the king to consume all of your remains
The sight of someone eating you will drive you insane
One final snap will be the end of all your pain

Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust
Cravings beset on those enchanted
Expose your weakness and they will grind you bones to dust
Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness

This brutal end should come as no surprise
Vision fading into your own demise

If you find yourself within these chamber walls
Prepare for the worst, the madness will befall
Hidden by their pleasure, the kind shall have you all
Track Name: The Endless Siege
Fueled by the fury of a thousand men
For the lies we have come here to slay thee
Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood
That flows through the veins of my enemies

Break down the doors
To the hall of the whores
Who've been sent to kill and enslave the
Heroes gone home from battle they're torn
Looking for peace from the enemy

Fueled by the agony of a thousand men
To save their lives we have come here to slay thee
Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood
That flows through the veins of my enemies

My axe will dine on flesh
Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood
The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery
An endless siege of iniquity

Wave after wave we slaughter to save
Our brothers restrained through hostility
Victims of evil we've come to release
Take up your arms and vanquish thee

Vanquish thee!!!

My axe will dine on flesh
Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood
The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery
An endless siege of iniquity

Moving from room to room we banish demon souls
Taking this den out of their hands place it in our control.
Resistance is useless no need to fight
We gain the upper hand on this fateful night

The cowards run and they hide
Defenseless to our blades they kneel and cry
Slit the last throat and see the life fade from their eyes

There will be no epitaph, there will be no eulogy for you
There will be no remains, only bones and ash

We march through a veil of crimson mist

This is the slaughter of a dying race
In the eyes of the gods such a pitiful disgrace
Extermination of the filth, let the cleansing begin

Fueled by the wrath of a thousand men
For their souls we have come here to save thee
Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood
That flows through the veins of my enemies

My axe will dine on flesh
Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood
The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery
An endless siege of iniquity
Let the cleansing begin
Track Name: A New Breed of Savior
Crucified on his day birth, taken to his new master's confines
Raised to feed on the souls of the divine
But in time he will find the truth is in the back of his mind
Raise the veil from his eyes

A new breed of savior for all of mankind
No one to stand by his side
Fed only lies, an evil disguise
Now is the time for this hero to rise
Callused hearts and tortured souls
Trained him to never turn on his own
Cast from the gates, deny eternal hate

Armed with the flames of hell, he slays the wicked and does it well
Without a weakness in sight we saves hundreds of humans lives
Made a slave, cast away, they betrayed,
But he saved those who they have enslaved

A new breed of savior for all of mankind
No one to stand by his side
Fed only lies, an evil disguise
Now is the time for this hero to rise
Callused hearts and tortured souls
Trained him to never turn on his own
Cast from the gates, deny eternal hate

Such a cruel fate for an innocent new born soul to bare
The burdens of a wretched world
Fighting the wicked to redeem his name
He seeks no fame only his rightful place
In a peaceful world, free of hate

No longer flesh and bone
There is nothing that can stop him now
His enemies will bow

Endowed with the powers of both sides
Not by choice, but forced through strife
He sheds his mortal life and bares the burden for mankind
And cries for all of those who've died
It's not his choice to take their lives

Crucified on his day birth, taken to his new master's confines
Raised to feed on the souls of the divine
But in time he will find the truth is in the back of his mind
Raise the veil from his eyes

A new breed of savior for all of mankind
No one to stand by his side
Fed only lies, an evil disguise
Now is the time for this hero to rise
Callused hearts and tortured souls
Trained him to never turn on his own
Cast from the gates, deny eternal hate
Track Name: Sentenced to Eternal Life
I've fought in many battles since the dawn of time
Crushing skulls beneath boots leaving no compromise
This is dreadful fate that thousands have met
Living this dreadful life with only one regret

This is my sentence of eternity
My sentence of eternal life
A living hell that has come over me
I fear I'll never see the light

You must now behold
This hell that is my life a story never told
An endless a circle of regret, I've paid my debt
Forever searching for my end
I fear a challenge never met

My lust for power was my downfall, my demise
I betrayed my brothers while staring them right in their eyes
A punishment so cruel one I could never dream of
I close my eyes beg for mercy and dream of the heavens

This is my sentence of eternity
My sentence of eternal life
A living hell that has come over me
I fear I'll never see the light

You must now behold
This hell that is my life a story never told
An endless a circle of regret, I've paid my debt
Forever searching for my end
I fear a challenge never met

Dying inside someone please hear my cries
Every since the dawn of time I've walked alone traveling the world
Searching for the end my only fear is that this is my
Sentence of eternal life
Someone end it tonight
Sentence of eternal life

Its about to end
No use for me to pretend
Endless hate with no chance of peace
Only prayers for my life to cease

Suffer unto me know
I'll never see the light
I am god amongst mankind
Track Name: The War Machine Embodiment
Inside the belly of a beast made of flesh and steel
My flesh and blood no longer seem so real
Inside this war machine that has blurred my sight
Distorting my vision of what's wrong or right

Blistering speed with a barrage of no mercy
Is the only thing fueling me to breathe
I am the future breed created through pure insanity
Simply shut off it I decide to think

I am the war machine
Forced to lead, bleed the weak
Lead by wicked hearts full of deceit
The war machine

Blistering speed with a barrage of no mercy
Is the only thing fueling me to breathe

I am the war machine
Forced to lead, bleed the weak
Lead by wicked hearts full of deceit
The war machine

All guns are locked and loaded
I am the weapon of mass destruction
This is the Armageddon of man
The time has come to unleash the master plan

Devastation and the ruins of man
Barren lands and blood soaked hands
Seek and destroy all survivors, nothing left but sand

I am the future breed created through pure insanity
Simply shut off it I decide to think

I am the war machine
Forced to lead, bleed the weak
Lead by wicked hearts full of deceit
The war machine
Track Name: The Warrior's Infinite Opus
(instrumental)
Track Name: Quest for the Trinity
Faced against many foes
I brandish my steel soaked with the blood of perished souls
Engulfed with the flames of both light and dark
Redemption is my goal
I must now embark

Onward to the highest peak to slay the winged frozen beast
He unleashes fury through the heavens wind and blistering cold
A carousel of winds blinding my surroundings
I mount this animal and sever his wings
I pierce my blade deep in the heart of this soulless wretched beast
This is his defeat

Air, land and sea
Man versus beast
These epic battles that man cannot perceive

On this voyage of the dead
Retrieving all their heads
Is the only way to seek out my revenge
This quest is not my choice
The gods must hear my voice
I must slay all these beast to bring forth my rejoice

In pursuit of the submerged fiend set sail to the deepest sea
A beast of proportions that are hard to believe
Leviathan, I call forth to summon thee
The ocean transforms into a maelstrom
The foe reveals himself with a vortex from beneath
Striking my vessel with an onslaught of attacks
At the point of no return it would be fatal to turn back

Deep below now we shall go
To finish this battle in the blackest abyss
He opens wide and swallows me whole
This is not the end, NO, I must persist
Now in the innards of this beast
I refuse to become his feast
Stabbing the heart continuously
A slain god by the hands of a human being

Looking back at my past which is not my own
On this quest sent from the highest throne
To slay the unholy trinity
That has stolen my true identity

Now I travel to a far and distant land
Which have never seen the prophecies of man
To find the entrance held deep beneath the earth
And fight the guardian where the demons lurk

Inside this lair lies a beast that awaits me
Told to have three heads the defender of Hades
Heeding his howls, his warnings will follow
Refusing this threat my sword he shall swallow
Breathing his flames, there burning and scorching
Melting my armor and dropping my sword
I resort to brute force and break off his horns
My end is approaching facing hell's scorn

Venturing past the gate to reveal a fiery lake
The resting place for a sword used for evil, nevermore

Air, land and sea
Man versus beast
These epic battles that man cannot perceive

On this voyage of the dead
Retrieving all their heads
Is the only way to seek out my revenge
This quest is not my choice
The gods must hear my voice
I must slay all these beast to bring forth my rejoice

With Hades blade in hand I make my final stand
Cutting at the throat of all three heads
Ascend the blade for the heavens to keep
I sleep forever as the journey is complete
Track Name: Forged in the Phlegethon
From the ashes rose a demonic blade
Crafted by hatred and sent to enslave
Cast away in the deepest cell
Guarded by angels from demons of hell

Rise from the flames below
The blade provides supreme control with powers unknown
Hidden from evil to preserve its flame
Now is the time to carry out its fate

And on that fated day
The demons, they came
Slaying the angels and stealing the blade
Given to a king with a heart of black
He gathers his soldiers and prepares to attack

Rise from the flames below
The blade provides supreme control with powers unknown
Hidden from evil to preserve its flame
Now is the time to carry out its fate

As the fallen ones return to their master
They fester in evil and bellow with laughter
The angels knew hell shall befall

Inside this kingdom of rage
His mind becomes deranged
With plans of domination
To create a demonic nation

A land of redemption
A land to renew
A loss of all kinds
Both, wicked and true

A storm of darkness fills the sky with destiny
The burning gates of the depths of hell will bring
A thousand demons rise as one
This war has begun the charring of flesh, pure devastation

This ancient evil has pleasured my mind
Bestowing me power to control all of time
Lest I die, all existence is mine

Surrender forever
With my might, eternal night
Enslaved by rage
This sword beacons me

I foresee fallen kings
Release me from my sheath

Die by my hand
This ancient evil is at my command

This blade placed inside my hand
Fueling my hatred this will be the end
No use so give in
And now just bow your head to your king
The flames of this blade will kill everything
Track Name: Cursed Unholy
The comets fall from out of the sky
Destroying the crowns that they love
Birthing a famine for all of mankind
To feed on the flames from above
Erased by darkness

Cursed unholy, they'll be baptized tonight
In the river of blood and be cast from the light

Their kingdoms crumbled in the blink of an eye
Before their prayers were spoken
Rest assured the bravest will cry
Before the first soul is stolen
Helplessly, the sands of time
The soul will soon learn to forget... in the fire

Eternally enslaved
The pain will never change
Sulfur in the wounds forever... FOREVER

Bow down before the thrown
You're cursed unholy
Bow down before the thrown
Your wounds will never heal

Cursed unholy, they'll be baptized tonight
In the river of blood and be cast from the light

They see their soldiers falling one by one
With darkness rising, the battle is not won

Every corpse shall rise in effigy of man
I command thee...
Burn it down and build again
