"We are coming close to 20 years of band history and with that comes the fourth album where each one of us will give our best to make it the darkest and most blasphemic album of all."
- I-Black, drummer and founder -
In 1997 the band INFERI was founded in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The first band line up were I-Black (drums), Fabrizio Andrada (guitar), Ariel Canca (bass) and Marcelo Torres (vocals). In 1998 they started performing in countless shows all over Buenos Aires, where they supported the best local bands of extreme metal music.
In 1999 INFERI signed with Furias Records to release their debut album "The call of the Dark Side". With this important step they became the first black metal band in Argentina to actually edit and launch a full CD. After the successful promotion shows, INFERI invited two new musicians to join them in 2000: Gaston (keyboard, bass) and Federico (second guitar). Times of extensive touring throughout their home country followed. INFERI was recognized as one of the most important band in its genre.
By the end of 2002 they started to compose their 2nd album called "The Awakening of the Black Hordes" which was released in 2005. The vocals on this album were recorded with two female guest singers Hela and Mortuoria.
