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.
‘Infernality’ marks the beginning of another chapter in the Pact Infernal tale as they undertake their very first live and DJ performances, as well as firmly establishing they have carved out their own singular stylistic patch within electronic music, tenuously tied to many strains, but ultimately incomparable.
