Sorcerer Vltra tells about the album and new music video:
"'The Grimoires' is an epic album that tells the stories behind the books banned for centuries in most of Western countries. Inferitvm want to show people the most unknown face of these books, the one that has unleashed its curse through the centuries, and they have also tried to capture in each song the rituals and the correct words that each magic book carried in its pages, words responsible in the majority of the cases of its prohibition and unnatural death or execution of its authors. They were called sorcerers (or scientists by others) which only sin was looking for knowledge and power in a brutal age of guided by blind Christianity.
This is a special album, with an hour of finest ‘occult black metal’ songs; completed with actual spells on its lyrics and full of nuances and contrast... It’s an interesting concept album that you can try to decipher, while music and lyrics will try to preserve that esoteric kind of vibe. The band recorded eleven songs, long and intrincate, about about eight minutes some of them, so It's a very special LP because of its meaning and because of the progression of Inferitvm’s music.
These islanders (the band is based in Majorca Island) put a lot of effort recording raw but melodic albums while they give their version of 90’s black metal. We find inspiration in those bands, and we pay tribute to that scene. Their fans have been asking for a new album from a long time, so here it is, directly from hell, directly from all secret knowledge extracted from the most heretic literature along mankind history, so the question is… are you ready to unlock the deeper secrets of the darkest literature?
About ‘De Occulta Philosophia’ video:
“This video for 'De Occulta Philosophia' has elements of fiction but also real elements present in the books. We wanted to use actual elements and ‘magic tools’ like knives and Ouijas and use them in various rituals so, we have not spared in visual resources or experimenting visually and physically. Some of these sequences are taken in selected localizations along Europe, abandoned castles, bunkers from Second World War and ruins within children's hospices and some masonry chapels.
We decided to make everything as real as possible, and rolled into those ‘special’ places that, after some strange incidents related to witchcraft practices or plagues of unknown nature, saw decimated their residents. In some cases they were abandoned centuries ago, and this must remind us that it is dangerous to play with what is not known, because since then these places are cursed and abandoned by a single reason: some ideas in these ‘books of power’… these Grimoires… can be extracted from books and experimented nowadays, and as H.P. Lovecraft said more than once, become real with horrifying and strange results”."
