Infrared - "From the Black Swamp" (video)

Steam rise, from the swamp ash up into the blackened skies
Flames they burn, next victim waits his turn
Now emerge, unsightly demon surge
From dark water comes demon’s daughter

There she lies, a serpent’s breath
Washes over you like cold death, like cold death
Wings spread wide, they block the light
Blinding you, there is no light, no light

Pain finds the empath to betray and redefine
Dragging all the skulls, victims writhe in her cull
Now they cry, describe the crimes
The betrayed mourn the death of time

There she lies, a serpent’s breath
Washes over you like cold death, like cold death
Wings spread wide, they block the light
Blinding you, there is no light, no light

And now her evil ways have come for us, the best of us
To redefine the truth for all of us, the succubus
Her devil ways will surely come for us, defining us
The thin veil designed to fool the best of us, the succubus

And now you raise your shield, defend
Came so close, almost destroyed
Truth has now become your only friend
Destroys the mask that would have ended you
Now no longer can you pretend
Light of truth now shines upon you, shines upon you


Ο δίσκος των Infrared "From the Black Swamp"
Infrared: Καναδέζικο thrash metal συγκρότημα που δραστηριοποιήθηκε την περίοδο που μεσουρανούσαν οι (αποκαλούμενοι ως) Big 4 (Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax). Δραστηριοποιήθηκε στο δεύτερο μισό της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα με απολογισμό μόλις ένα demo ["R.I.P. (Recognition in Power)" 1988]. Προ επταετίας επανήλθε δριμύτερο. Ένα ep και τρεις "ολοκληρωμένοι" δίσκοι ο απολογισμός της επιστροφής τους. Το πλέον πρόσφατο διασκογραφικό πόνημα των Infrared φέρει τον τίτλο "From the Black Swamp" και κυκλοφόρησε στο ξεκίνημα του φθινοπώρου...

Βιογραφικό: «If Infrared sound like classic thrash metal, that’s because they are! And rightfully so since they were making music as teenagers in the mid to late 80s back when the Big 4 (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax) were just becoming famous.

They literally lived and breathed that scene as it was happening and garnered national attention in Canada through their song and video for Thoughts Caught (in Between). Then... life happened and members took different paths and the music, that was hot in the underground metal scene and loved by demo tape traders near and far, went dormant for 27 years!

In 2014 Infrared reunited with 3 of the original 4 members (Kirk, Armin, and Alain), and since original bassist Shawn Thompson had moved to Miami, they recruited Mike Forbes. They worked hard to release their first full length album, No Peace, featuring songs written all those years ago.

2018 saw Infrared release their sophomore album, Saviours, featuring 8 new songs coming in at just over 50 minutes of music! That was followed up by their 2019 EP, Back to the Warehouse featuring the last of their 80's written songs and released as a bridge to their next full length album.

Now, in 2021, Infrared release their most mature album yet, From the Black Swamp. The album features 12 songs for one hour of hard hitting and emotionally charged songs steeped in the themes of betrayal and malicious sabotage in all walks of life, from societal to interpersonal.

With several high profile concerts under their belts including opening for Anvil, Sacrifice, Razor, Venom Inc., Dirkschneider, Flotsam and Jetsam, DBC, E-Force, and Atrophy, Infrared raises their horns and looks forward to getting out there to meet and befriend metal lovers everywhere!»
