THE INFINITY RING unveils video
New England-based avant post-industrial conjurors THE INFINITY RING today unveils a video for “Tiferet II,” the second single from their Nemesis & Nativity debut full-length set for release on April 14th via Profound Lore Records.
An undertaking spawned by Cameron Moretti in the Summer of 2020, THE INFINITY RING draws together many musicians long active within the Boston metal, punk, and electronic scenes. What initially began as an investigative take on dark folk music with added elements of drone and noise, morphed into an alchemical fusion of experimental rock with many disparate strains from the post-industrial continuum, all delivered with a spiritual and mystic bent. Nemesis & Nativity’s sonic output sits at the crossroads of a variety of genres including ominous folk, no wave, industrial, and black metal, with elements of occult and ethereal antiquarian sonics laced throughout.
Comments Moretti on the band’s latest single, “‘Tiferet II’ is a continuation of the theme presented in the collaboration with Jarboe [THE INFITY RING’s Ohr EP]. ‘Tiferet II’ is the death of ego, the mirror turned inward, and the glory of the rebirth.” Watch the video below:
Nemesis & Nativity, which comes adorned in the cover art of MFAXII, will be released on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. Find preorders and other audio links at THIS LOCATION.
THE INFINITY RING will make an appearance at this year’s edition of SXSW with additional performances to be announced in the coming weeks.

THE INFINITY RING spent much of 2020 and 2021 experimenting in various studios around New England, deeply immersed in open-ended musical research and development. These sessions would eventually lead to the aforementioned collaborative Ohr EP with Jarboe.
In early 2022, the band set out record Nemesis & Nativity at God City Studios in Salem, Massachusetts. The album builds on much of what came before, but with a more pronounced sense of ritual, atmosphere, and heaviness. During the creation of the album, genre conventions fell by the wayside and extreme experimentation was channeled, resulting in a sonic palette that morphs from elegantly haunted atmospherics to mystic ritual drone, brutalist industrial rhythms to passages of hallowed melancholy.
In the live setting, the band is dedicated to bringing the same experimental and spiritual energy, often incorporating several guest musicians into the ensemble. In certain live contexts, any semblance of a traditional band is abandoned in favor of a more freeform collaboration with other artists, or even in favor of a solo acoustic performance. Ultimately, THE INFINITY RING is a collective united under a banner of experimentalism and hermetically aligned creative practice, all in an effort to channel the intangible otherworldly qualities present in many different styles of underground music. At times, the band has been said to invoke sounds such as Swans, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Dead Can Dance, all particular to their sonic worldbuilding.
