With the usual music video outlets like MTV and VH1 seeming to be more interested in reality programming than music, bands are having a tough time finding places to debut their videos, especially those with a horror-tinged edge. Which is why Dread Central is pleased to premiere “Graven Image” from Infernaeon, the theme of which is essentially the Last Super and crucifixion, done with Jesus and his disciples as zombies.
An evil demon has, once again, reared its wicked head from the swamps of Florida to wreak havoc on the metal landscape. The demon’s name is Infernaeon, and this Floridian outfit has returned with the follow-up to 2007’s A Symphony of Suffering, entitled, Genesis to Nemesis, released August 31st on Prosthetic Records. This time around frontman and former Monstrosity member Brian Werner found himself accompanied by two new guitarists, Taylor Nordberg and Steven Harger, new bassist Mike Poggione, as well as drummer Jeramie Kling (The Absence) and keyboardist David Stein.
To record Genesis to Nemesis, Infernaeon entered Erik Rutan’s infamous metal factory, Mana Recording Studios (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal), with Brian Elliot (Dawn of Azazel, Graves of Valor), who engineered, mixed, and mastered their blend of Floridian death metal and symphonic European black metal. GWAR main man Oderus Urungus stopped by to lend his vocal stylings to a “reimagining” of the Metallica classic “Creeping Death.”
Infernaeon, who have shared the stage with the likes of Malevolent Creation, Deicide, Atheist, Deeds of Flesh, Vile, and Impaled, are ready to show the underworld that Florida is still firmly atop the heap of extreme metal.

Luke and Pia really brought to life visually what we were trying to accomplish musically; they put their all into this video for us, and it shows in the end result!”
