Infamata by C.S.
Sheidim sinks their sharp teeth into the black metal matter, exalting its implicit violence as well as its dark and majestic aura. They masterfully shift from destructive accelerations to lugubrious slowdowns within the same song, combining black metal with a death metal frenzy in a lethal yet elegant formula that gives evidence of their untamable nature and grants to their music an unbearable tension.
It has been some time since Infamata came out, but we are still really satisfied with it. We also did our first gigs after it came out, so this EP had a lot to do with the band’s evolution. It was quite similar to the songwriting and recording of our LP. I wanted to go one step further after analyzing the songs and sound of Shrines of the Void. I guess usually the writing process is boring for everyone except the people involved in it.
The only different thing is we recorded the drums in another studio due to schedule incompatibilities with Javi and Moontower. But besides that, recording with Javi is always easy and you know he’s going to give your music the best sound possible. You always want more days to record and mix but that’s also an interesting thing, to see how good can you adapt to the studio and how much of the final result did you have in mind.
Every input you have in life may affect in one way or another, directly or indirectly, what you create. And obviously every little choice is made for a reason, or at least it is supposed to be, even if it banishes after it’s done. I’m sure I used movie or book structures for making songs, but honestly, it was in the heat of the moment and I forgot about most of them. I don’t think that’s so important for listening to an album anyway. We have some obvious musical references and others more hidden, like any other band.
