Stoner metal INFEROUS "Somos la Noche"


Stoner metal INFEROUS "Somos la Noche"

Fuzzy has long said that Spanish is the language of stoner music. (Russian is for sludge, English is for psych, and French is for prog, in case you were wondering.) So when INFEROUS sent me their new album to check out, and I cast an eye on the Spanish lyrics, I was ready to get excited. And their new album "Somos la Noche" (we are the night) proves that Fuzzy was right all along -- these vocals must be in Spanish to support the massive slabs of fuzz that are contained on this album. Inferous blends heavy psych into their stoner doom in a way that pounds your head down into the underground, while at the same time freeing your mind to soar into outer space. Guitar solos rip over walls of distortion, with the Spanish singing weaving them together. Check out "Somos la Noche" on Bandcamp:

Dig how the instrumental opening track rips straight into the next song, where the Spanish vocals explode onto the scene. The continuity continues again into the next song, and I found the album was well into the third song before I realized the 2nd had finished. I dig this effect because it gives the album a flow which demands you listen from start to finish. Keep your manos off the pause button! 

The album clocks in at nearly an hour. Dig it!

Fuzzy's Favorite: "Infierno verde" (green inferno) but really this album is meant to listen from start to finish in a single massive session of fuzz. With Spanish vocals.
