Out now: Iterum Nata - From the Infinite Light!

Drawing from a wellspring of sinister musings and an incessant drive for musical experimentation, Iterum Nata presents “From the Infinite Light”.

In the wake of his critically acclaimed 2023 album, “Trench of Loneliness”, Jesse Heikkinen (The Abbey, Henget, ex-Hexvessel) embarks on a bold foray across the boundaries between folk music, black and doom metal, neo-folk, and progressive rock, orchestrating a symphony where every note is a harbinger of both darkness and light.

As twelve-string and six-string acoustic guitars weave a cloak of folky serenity, tremolo-picked electric guitars inject black metal mysticism, forging a sound that's as distinctive as it is immersive. Fusing the brooding narratives of Nick Cave, the avant-garde creativity of Dødheimsgard, and the spectral chants of Dead Can Dance, “From the Infinite Light” is a beckoning path into a world where the melancholy of introspection meets the rage of existence.

“From the Infinite Light” was produced, recorded, and mixed by Jesse Heikkinen at Studio Beyond North Star. Cover art by Kjetil Karlsen. The album features guest appearances by Matron Thorn (Ævangelist, Benighted in Sodom), Rob Coffinshaker (The Coffinshakers), as well as renowned author and occultist Richard Kaczynski.

With “From the Infinite Light”, Iterum Nata transitions from a solitary journey to a collective venture, featuring a full band setup that augments the weight and breadth of the project’s soundscape, marking this as its most ambitious and heaviest work to date.

Delving into the abyss of the human psyche, the album narrates the odyssey of a desperate soul seeking refuge in the shadows of his inner chaos, eventually finding a sombre embrace in the darkness borne from his disintegrating sanity.

Jesse commented:

“From the Infinite Light” is a concept album exploring the birth of Darkness and Death. The narrative unfolds through two voices; ‘Darkness’, born from the Infinite or Limitless Light – a concept borrowed from Qabbalah to explain cosmic genesis – and a desperate man unravelling his destiny as he descends into madness. Eventually, the man merges with Darkness, together embodying Death.
