From the mind of Germany’s black metal genius Andras comes "Thrypsis", the newest full-length record of INFESTUS.
A deeply personal exploration of the cathartic function found in pain, "Thrypsis" effortlessly weaves tortured dissonance with melodic sensibility.
Thrashing blackened rhythms intermingle with saccharine leads and solos as moody piano dirges, vitriolic screams and crushing death metal motifs intersperse the symphony found in a man’s last desperate breath. Vicious and absurdist, "Thrypsis" is a one of a kind album that refuses to be easily defined.

Don’t be fooled by the name making mere reference to a form of Metal that is not being celebrated here. Also, try not to put too much importance on the ridiculous song titles. This is serious stuff we’re dealing with here. Atmospheric progressive Death Metal meets black opera, meets intelligent lyrics about a dying earth and human scum. This record keeps spinning in my player for months now and I don’t grow tired of its daring take on brutality. May the slimy goddess be with you! Mohemian
