In 2018, this band came out of nowhere releasing their debut full-length through 20 Buck Spin entitled Cosmovore and truth be told, it surely was well lived up the hype of how amazing, fluent and executed the music truly became. Now we have the […]

Prosanctus Inferi are a blackened death metal band hailing all the way from Columbus, Ohio who’s been active in the underground scene for approximately 15 years.
