Bailey then tries to give a short summary of what has happened in the Infernäl camp since the first release of their last album One Who Points to Death in 2004, “When I get asked this my brain freezes because I don’t know where to start. As you can imagine much has gone on. A lot of soul searching, dealing with personal demons, member changes, death, and destruction. All will be revealed in the book I’m writing on our history. Sure to become a movie. There are many more chapters yet to be played out before I begin the final cut.”
Infernäl Mäjesty celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2017 and the band have a lot in the works to celebrate that special date. Chris tells us what it is they’re planning: “We couldn’t be more stoked to be working with High Roller Records as part of our 30th anniversary. We have been celebrating since the new year began. We have lots planned including two more album re-releases, a guitar giveaway later this year and some major news concerning touring.”
Chris continues, “We have slowly but surely been reaching our goals that we set out to achieve when we embarked on our newest journey. We wanted to write a good album with good lyrics that weren’t just fluff. There is a purpose and insight to go with a heavy thrash attack on the senses. That was our main goal. We put a lot into No God but it will be up to our fans to decide. If they like it, then we achieved our goal.”
No God is a strong and uncompromising title in itself, and looking at the song titles, it seems as if the absence of God is a topic that runs through the whole album.
Chris explains the thoughts behind it, “We were focused on this message of truth from the beginning. It’s important we feel to help the future of humankind. There is no God of the bible and if by chance there was a force of nature that displayed what seemed to us humans as supernatural, then it will be contained and identified by science. Much like how we are unraveling the mysteries of Dark Matter. Religion is destroying this planet as is bad journalism and a public unable to decipher fact from fiction.”
Once again, Infernäl Mäjesty went through some line-up changes before the new album was recorded: Eric Dubreuil (bass) and Kris DeBoer (drums) left and were replaced with two new members. Some people may know new drummer Kiel Wilson from his time with Canadian melodic death metal outfit Severed Serenity.
