Metallurgical Fire No Inferi record ever clicked with me before, but this is a completely different experience. Vile Genesis has the best production and songwriting I’ve heard from the band, by far. If you haven’t been a fan in the past, then listen up and they might convince you. Favorite track: From Exile to Exaltation.

mythicmetalmonster Just so unreal. Favorite track: Maelstrom Prison.

Arrogant Bastard Inferi have forged a most vile and oozing album of viridescent melodic death metal sure to erode even the most stalwart of detractors.
I've always enjoyed, but never loved Inferi -- 'Vile Gensis' has converted me into a fan!
Well fucking done!
Favorite track: Mesmeric Horror.

Eons have passed since the ghosts in the sky breathed souls into simians birthing mankind Traces untrodden their faces forgotten whilst men are besotten, bewitched by their machines Once prey they crawled from their caves to reap All they could claim Now this apex predator shall inherit the planet Earth Revolution A new era of man is at hand Fusion of mind and machine (of mind and machine the perfect being) Evolution The singularity progress There are no gods but our flesh (no gods but our flesh, none can attest) Embedded within the brain An interface to fathomless realities (Solo M. Pugh) Modern marvels combined with an ancient artifact Emerald effervescence sparked the digital sentience transcendence Implementation of a new kind, enter the human hive mind Revolution A new era of man is at hand Fusion of mind and machine (of mind and machine the perfect being) Evolution The singularity progress There are no gods but our flesh (no gods but our flesh, none can attest) Pushing the threshold of perception And the digital blindfold of untold deception AI enabled this streaming of consciousness Indistinguishable from Dreaming or Waking life No gods but our flesh (Solo M. Low) Unlocking the AI phenomena Mankind devolves into automata Digitized augmented fantasy With rhapsody to dreams they flee Their minds free of reality Integrated into society, currency, and hive mind psychiatry Cybernetic life-force invasion Of unknown source it guides the course of Earth’s future with without remorse

For Centuries I have languished within the confines of this wretched storm Sealed away by my progenies who sought to usurp the throne As foretold - In my midst treachery seeded Unforeseen - The deeds of my seed bleed greed succeeded Sealed away None possess the might to slay lead astray, betrayed cast away, frayed and left to decay Blasphemous lies divulged with efficacy At the mercy of insidious spawn The unbeknownst crown soon a pawn “My liege, please heed these words of prophecy. The golden throne shall be seized by treachery The days of your rule have foregone.” Blessed be the oracle’s vision They have foreseen my demise Deeds of treason Thus I began purging perfidious ranks from my legions A creation to ensure my legacy Willing a consciousness into being Manufacturing the means to my eternal rule Compressed memories and accumulated knowledge of centuries Converged Into a flourishing vessel Artificial, autonomous, yet intertwined (Solo M. Pugh) The gleaming tesseract primed Replication of the divine contents that lay within my mind In my absence it shall wake Rise to retake in fervent state Decimate those who dared to displace Hastily summoned by my generals To distant stars Unveiling their ethereal phenomena Planetary Rings Several of my spawn joined ranks with thee Once trusted advisor turned adversary The words you spoke as prophecy Foreshadowed this act of treachery Unsheathed to claim the hides of heretics Crimson rings will adorn your throats Blood becomes mist as I claim the first of the iniquitous Perniciousness will be your demise (Solo - M. Pugh) Suddenly seized by cyclonic force Sins of his seed were the only source Altercation would be their downfall And thus they created a celestial squall Paralyzed by the insurrection Deprived of the verdant mind in my possession Chain upon chain of magnetism confines me to this maelstrom prison (Solo M. Low) These distant memories replay obsessively hauntingly daunting my sanity My Immortality staves off fatality and when I finally break free of This exiled sentencing there will be a reckoning

Simian Hive 05:05
Simian Hive Noctambulists repeat their history Slaves to the otherworldly For eras I’ve influenced your minds, now I control the Simian hive Insatiable - Escapists consume, rest, and resume For they fail to see the fantasies on which they feast merely ripen them for the beast A vicious cycle Ceaseless autopilot mindless drones become clones Destined to be fodder for the seeds that have been sown (Solo M. Pugh) Clandestine insanity I have replaced everything that you see Digital dominion eclipses your reality Unsuspecting marionettes have relinquished Unto me their every limb thought, and memory Every human a vessel for my design Each skull a prison of the mind Noctambulists repeat their history Slaves to the otherworldly For eras I’ve influenced your minds, now I control the Simian hive Thralls of flesh will fulfill this destiny And conjure forth a deity Mortal hands will in time create a gateway that splits the skies And when the time is right I’ll free their minds For just a moment to feast upon the glorious return of a banished eidolon (Solo M. Low) Now it’s nearly complete this ziggurat shall be the means of liberation from your transcendental cosmic cell By blessed blood these simians shall receive the gifts of the revenant Recreated in thy image (Solo M. Pugh) The time is nigh A new era spawned upon this beacons ignition Every effigy bends at the knee to see With eyes unclouded and yet under my decree Drawn to your leader Your Greatest Deceiver Vapid believers of the visitant Tethered together for life Plague on the Soul Plague of the Body and Mind Are the chains that bond your black mirror prison to an echo chamber Tethered together for life Starved of divinity Humanity leached Fed by their ghosts Control has been reached Puppets shall hang by their throats Under the weight towed by their strings

Disoriented in a state of vast darkness Graveless corpses jolt back to life Bewildered masses awaiting drudgery Minds untethered awakening As though it all were all just a dream They bear witness with their final moments of consciousness Awestricken eyes gaze upon empyreal skies Veridian waves devour the face of the horizon A rift betwixt worlds steadily forms Veiling the deity scorned Its crucible met by violent storms As if to protest the god reborn The celestial aperture exposes the passage to oblivion His apparition peers in from perdition (Solo M. Pugh) And from the vaporous vortex of eternal imprisonment The deity’s immensity spews through the sky with magnificence Centuries of plotting now at long last This destiny shall come to pass From the clutches of exile To revival arise reprise that which was deprived Reemergence of power forgotten and lost Sheer volition fuels the quest of this ravenous god Upon the reunion of crafter and artifact knowledge once lost comes crawling back Bestowed Dispelling delirium though seething hatred remains Dwelling in disbelief beneath the bastion Simians fall to the digital veil again Bound to serve their true master Forever is their sleep Atop the citadel a declaration is made To sweep and swiftly conquer what remains of this plane (Solo M. Low) (Solo M. Pugh) (Solo M. Low) (Solo M. Pugh) Heeding the call of their overlord deity The hive mind sets out to do his bidding Once they complete this mission Anu will pursue his true ambition From exile to exaltation This journey from abnegation Begins with liberation ends with domination and Damnation for those that oppose From exile to exaltation Begins with liberation Ends with their domination Revelation, devastation For those who oppose the golden throne

Vile Genesis 05:44
Vile Genesis There is but one last bastion of man To be seized surrender or bleed What began as a covert campaign Ends with soil soaked with crimson Rain from the slain Their deaths were in vain Their bane, my disdain Infiltration ruination, deprivation Outright annexation Lost and graceless A battle rages between two tribes of man The primitive untethered and those that heed my command Profane souls I’ve preordained Shall be one with oblivion ultimatum proclamation I exclaim Servitude or death now choose your course That which has not been given will be taken by force Their kingdom could be quelled from afar But my eternal legions must be forged Culled through visceral bowels of war The first of many onslaughts the worthy will endure (Solo - M. Pugh) Profane souls I’ve preordained Shall be one with oblivion ultimatum proclamation Servitude or death now choose your course That which has not been given will be taken by force The path they chose was that of their damnation Sever them from life These mortals will know strife And they pray for death serene They cannot escape From the clutches their fate Axiom of my regime A connoisseur of corpses I’ve inspected, collected those that have perished But they will not rest While we conquest For not even - The dead have seen The end of war By my blood they are reborn Forlorn to scorn Hybridized bastardized That which they once held sacred and sanctified Forsaken their minds taken Man proves to be the greatest weapon against humanity My sleepwalkers leave no soul eradicate them all Overwhelmed outnumbered outmatched the primitive are dispatched Cascaded by our ceaseless assault the rebellion is brought to a halt Now their stronghold is laid to rest by noctambulists and the ranks of the dead As their forces diminish our undying horde flourishes Into a myriad of the abhorrent (Solo - M.Low) These failures of flesh Pretenders to the throne will Bow before their king Void of volition Enslaved by their own Hunger for evolution By tainted blood resurrection Doomed to coalesce In this quest for vengeance A vile genesis Plagues Cascade Sewing terminus Grimly foreshadowing What shall befall Worlds one and all Insurrection uncontested By the legions I have built have manifested Through an infection Of royal blood bestowed upon their fallen My sleepwalkers engulf the earth While my bloodline has given birth To a vile genesis

Obstructing light with a blanket of darkness As our new god blots out the sun The wilted husks of human flesh Will only bask in sorrow At the point of divergence There are those who wish to see The integration of mind and machine Digital neural blasphemy Gluttonous tendencies A dispute between capabilities And moral philosophies creates a rift in society We can see it, We can hear it The storm of their siege paints the streets Bloody ruins enshrined Split by the wrath of the ancient one that we’ve awakened We can feel it, We can taste it Humanity confined Before we face the crimson flood Watch their bodies gush with the life that flows through their veins Coexistence violated unprovoked hostility If we are to survive then we must deprive the wicked of their lives Sickly in appearance Vapid eyes, bereft of mind To outlive these fiends we must abandon our humanity We’re at the point of crisis There are those who choose to flee And those who fight to save the meek Incurring casualties Amidst the pandemonium We must face the possibility That if we fall we shall see the collapse of society (Solo by M. Low) I can see it, I can hear it The storm of their siege paints the streets Bloody ruins enshrined split by The wrath of the ancient one that we’ve awakened I can feel it, I can taste it Humanity confined Before I face the crimson flood See their bodies gush with the life that flows through their veins Descending from the sky this winged colossus bestows the seeds of malevolence As if it were placed upon the earth itself To shatter our illusions of deliverance (Solo M. Pugh) Clutching the carcasses of our deceased Spider-like droplets creep from its wrist I watched in mesmeric horror as they crawl inside Causing the lifeless to writhe What faith remained for humankind fled from me hastily A grim revelation takes root as twisted bone and flesh Become a hideous new being A graveborn soulless entity devoid of empathy This incarnation was the first of many Awakened to prey upon a dwindling populace Obstructing light with a blanket of darkness As our new god blots out the sun The wilted husks of human flesh Can only bask in sorrow At the point of no return There are those who have perished only to rise diabolically As living heirs of catastrophe A grim revelation takes root We are being harvested In death we will carry out the deeds of a new unhallowed dynasty

Carving Thine Kingdom The empire that lay before him was forged by deception The land itself steeped in the blood of its indigenous Such is the nature of war Only a king and those that bow before United by the shackles of tyranny Sequestered in the night sky the tapestry of stars False czars and their progeny weave their sovereignty across the galaxy Fated to be stricken by vengeance unforeseen devoured by the one true king Harrowing hybrids of flesh and scale And vapid vessels will fight tooth and nail Vehemently Diligently they bow to me with immense loyalty unquestionable Earth born anew Neo Nibiru And my will has become Inescapable Sequestered in the night sky the tapestry of stars False czars and their progeny weave their sovereignty across the galaxy Fated to be stricken by vengeance unforeseen For I am everlasting Girded with the multifarious and an interstellar rift To quell those that dwell amongst distant stars cursed by the sins of their patriarchs (Solo M. Pugh) A flaw nearly fatal I’ve rectified the act of choice In my wake free will transforms into fallacy Callously my dynasty will be sculpted across the constellations Their Kingdoms shall fall Sequestered in the night sky the tapestry of stars False czars and their progeny weave their sovereignty Fated to be stricken by vengeance unforeseen devoured by the one true king They’ll resist, they will defy but when their blood christens the covenants prize They will finally realize that I am the inexorable (Solo M. Low) Cherish the fall of my enemies For I am everlasting

In all its majesty this wasteland once called Earth From green to grey to black Extinguished by the hands of the Nephilim The homestead of the accursed A mere blink of an eye in this universe Will stand the tests of time within the confines of this virus disguised as a bloodline From god to man Inherit the path of power from seeds that plagued you From dust and sand Rose a digital veil with the roots to enslave you Now your souls have fed the machine All but devoid of life This departure made us god again In the eyes of the father Heirs of descension The deplorable existence of man Is forever chained by the shackles of a tyrant lost, depraved Condemned and devoured by their sin Manipulated and enslaved The simulation weaves false realities holding the mind captive within its fallacies This blissful ignorance is a gift Exchanged for unyielding compliance in his quest These puppets earned their exploitation Their fate symbolic Retribution For the hands of these vessels Stained and tarnished by atrocities Never to be written in their odysseys of death A genocidal genesis (Mike Solo) “Oh’ Father of nephilim Bestoweth our destined enslavement Upon to you our death as a payment Immersed atonement The sins we have unraveled bathing in the quest for power” To his disciples the father provided through wrath and scorn his guidance A key to be reborn In the image of a god We assimilate as we become one As the hive of insidious beauty A swarm of cosmic death We Ascend Now a radiant bloom across the universe To conquer all lifeforms and feast upon the light (Solo M. Pugh) Scions of ascension Now Heirs of the descent The shells empowered by divinity Deprived of all contempt Acolytes of loss conceived The wrath of their god unleashed Amongst the stars to seek and to scour Those who have sought to usurp his power
