MR Xmas Calendar Day 8: Inter Arma

In the run-up to Christmas, we look at bands and artists which impressed us or had some impact in 2016!

Band: Inter Arma
Label: Relapse Records
Country: USA
Genre: Post-Metal/Sludge/Black/Death Metal


Inter Arma aren’t a band that do things by halves – their previous release consisted of one 43-minute track. They’re also quite difficult to pin down too, given that their music blends together a variety of genres, such as doom, sludge, black, death and post-metal, even in just one song. This year, with their 70-minute behemoth of an album Paradise Gallows, the five-piece from Richmond, Virginia staked their claim as one of the most exciting underground metal bands for the future, as they are one of the few bands today who can deliver such punishing excess, expansive musicality, and devastating beauty all at the same time.


About Greg (15 Articles)
I am a recent graduate of Digital Film Technology, but my main love is music. I am a huge fan of heavy metal and classic rock, although in recent times, my taste has ventured to that of alternative, indie, electronica, folk and jazz. I first got into metal when I was about 11 or 12 years old, for which I listened to a lot of nu-metal (such a dirty word nowadays). The only genres I don’t like very much are dubstep, techno and modern pop music. I've only ever been at a few gigs, but they've been memorable ones (such as seeing Torche and Soulfly, for which I got to meet Max Cavalera after the gig).
