“Nüwa” is the last conceptual album from Taiwanese black metal horde, Inferno Requiem. Originally released last year, this album represents both something old-fashioned as well as something new. It features figures whom are quite acquainted with and knowledgeable of black metal. The theme is taken from a legendary myth of an utterly forgotten tale in Chinese history. While considered unholy and unorthodox to some, one can only dare to raise thoughts against today’s brainwashed version of the so-called “common history” we read of today. As Inferno Requiem always does, sci-fi elements are incorporated with a tone of forewarning prophecy. Musically, the album is pure, primitive black metal that is represented by the freezing cold atmosphere…something that has always been a staple of true black metal.
