A Polish black-death metal band from Częstochowa. The band formed in 1997. Their music contains elements of old black-thrash mixed with blasphemous black metal
and Slayer-like solos. The vocalist articulates his English pretty clearly for this kind of music. The drummer is renowned for his blastbeats
at the speeds of an inhuman beast.
As of this 2010 writing, the line-up includes:
Herr Warcrimer — vocals
Zyklon — guitars
Triumphator — guitars
Godcrusher — bass
Stormblast — drums
P. Helmkamp of Angelcorpse recorded guest vocals on a song from Infernal War's second record: "Redesekration: The Gospel of Hatred and Apotheosis of Genocide"
Their music is glorifies death
and all forms of violence
. Their lyrics are primarily focused on blasphemy, brutality, the desecration of holy imagery, and genocide
particularly against christianity
The cover art for the Redesekration full length CD is a statue from the city of Nagasaki, home to Japan's largest christian population at the time. Almost the entire christian population of the city perished in the nuclear blast. The photo was included, as stated by the band in their liner notes, as "a homage... to the destructive and genocidal possibilities of atomic energy usage."
"I would say that 'jesus! fucking! christ! bastard son of the jewish whore! lord of the weak! blind and sick! I invert your fucking cross!' is a decent sample of Infernal War's lyrics,
although 'Behold the holy disciples! fucking lambs masturbating! upon the corpse of the jewish whore! choking with holy excrements!' is also representative of the whole body of their work."
