Earth Infernal is a product of the times that birthed it, and could only be the work of Satan. Having churned out cutting edge heavy metal throughout the 80s, and reunited in 2011, their sixth full-length maintains the high standard they long ago set. It is perhaps their timeliest release. "For two years the world has been preoccupied with politics and pandemics. While we were all looking the other way our planet has continued to get hotter," says guitarist Russ Tippins. "Our Earth is now infernally hot. Almost irreversibly so. We are on a one-way trip to Hell and dragging our children and their children along with us. Yes, Satan has something to say about global warming." Following up 2018's stunning Cruel Magic is no easy feat, a record that Tippins views as a "game changer" for Satan. Describing the record succinctly as "Brutal, up tempo, loud guitars," it is classic Satan but sounds fresh and new, the band experimenting a little. With touring plans in the works, fans will get a chance to hear these songs live in the not-too-distant future, and perhaps more importantly Satan will continue to spread the important message at the heart of the album.
