Infra Black - Fuckocalypse
Harsh EBM, Industrial Current Line-up :
Reverend Gabriel Wolf - vocals, lyrics, programming, artwork, violence
Dr. Matthias Krieger - programming, grotesque brutality
Sister Nola Darxley - additional sick voices and terror

Following a suit of demos, remix albums, and compilations, this is the 12th release by Hungarian gore-obsessed act Infra Black.

Featuring Gabriel Wolf (who is also known for his work in numerous Black Metal projects, Gothic projects, and Novel-writing), and featuring various guest musicians over the years, Infra Black is notorious for some of the goriest, sickest, and generally most deranged lyrics and concepts to grace the genre.

Since the release of "FreakGod TerrorBitch" in 2009 on DBSP, Infra Black has gained recognition with the fantastic cover art, and the highlight track, the controversial "Your Love is a Holocaust".

Fuckocalypse, which is also worth 200 points on a Scrabble board, furthers the continuation of Gabriel's mission to disgust, pervert, and arouse (depending on the audience) the senses of Industrial fans, and converted Metal fans (who have most likely checked out his project at some point), alike.

Existing fans will find nothing new here, just the same refined formula of shock and violence, with a cycle of new sounds, themes, and ideas. Cannibalism? No problem! Emetophilia? Yes please! Raising the dead? Hell, buy all 3 and get a souvenir!

Generic song titles such as "Die" and "Epidemic" may disappoint people expecting real perversion, but assuredly, the content is there, and it's not hard to find it.

"Six, Sick Sex" whets the appetite slightly, but unlike "That's Blood, That's Death" "Bloodchaos", and previously mentioned "FreakGod TerrorBitch", the titles play second fiddle to the music, which can only be described as impressive. It has unique sounds, and Gabriel's vocals are sick enough to either be fantastic, or terrible. You won't find anyone sitting on the fence regarding this aspect.

Infra Black, being the cheeky project that it is, can't sit by without making a silly song, or at least not one with a slightly unusual title. Who would have EVER thought they would hear a song called "Mermaid with a Mangina"? I have to admit, I laughed for about 10 minutes when I saw the title. It's just so wrong, and so silly. Interestingly, the track is deeply memorable, and has a hook that has never left my head since I first heard it.

I almost felt bad about purchasing this on Amazon, due to the amount of content marked Explicit, and the foul imagery. I can't wait to see what comes up on "Recommended for you".

In closing, Infra Black needs more exposure, as the project is essentially unique, impressive, and enjoyable from foreplay to climax - bloodied, breathing, or still.

However, this is NOT for everyone, and definitely NOT for the family or work place.
