“Nüwa” (女娲), the new conceptual album from Inferno Requiem in 2017, represent both something old-fashioned as well as new blending if people are quite acquainted with knowledge regarding black metal. The theme takes place of a legendary myth to the utterly forgotten tale in Chinese history. While considered “unholy,” “unorthodox” by some; it is bold to hypothesize alternative opinions compared to the so-called “common history” we read and brain-washed today. As IR always does, sci-fi elements are rendered within the contents, with tone of forewarning prophecy. Musically, the album is just pure primitive black metal, represents in the pattern of freezing atmosphere, which true black metal once was. Simultaneously, the entire scene setting is arranged within the likes of sick, thick fog; reverberating in a dark, morbid, solitude of cavernous space. Recommend to fans of Judas Iscariot, early Setherial, and early Gorgoroth.
