In their endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage death metal, Memento Mori are extremely thrilled to announce a new signing: Inanna, from Chile.
In a weird and horrific hallucination, guitarist/songwriter Diego Ilabaca received the revelation to create new music. Still in his teen years, he came up with the idea of fusing his favorite albums, Morbid Visions and Altars of Madness, with the mysticism and transcendence of the long and amazingly structured compositions of his ’70s prog-rock heroes. It took a long time to find the right musicians to realize that vision. Once he did, and like the powerful gods of the Sumerian pantheon, Inanna came to life from the netherworld in 2000, obsessed with such early technical death metal acts as Atheist, Cynic, Death, and Pestilence, and plagued with the evil brutality of Suffocation, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Immolation, and Gorguts. Even though inspired by those acts, this four-piece entity walk a path of uniqueness through their own spheres and interdimensional portals. Unlike other ridiculously over-the-top, ultra-complex, soulless bands, Inanna seek inspiration in the outer worlds and the obscure abysses of the unknown, via demented growls, the nightmarish writings of H.P. Lovecraft, mythology, and ancient lore. Malice, death, and insanity, the human mind, and Cthulhu spells also lurk deep within the band’s concept, like eerie sea tales from a distant century that one can only whisper in fear.
After two albums and many a stage hit by Diego Ilabaca (guitars), Max Neira (bass/vocals), Carlos Fuentes (drums/guitars), and Cristobal Gonzalez (guitars) over the band’s years of existence, Inanna are now ready to start creating their third full-length opus, whose CD version will be released by Memento Mori in 2021.
