Less than a month ago, rising symphonic metal stars AD INFINITUM graced the scene with their newest album, Chapter II – Legacy. The 12-track full-length charted successfully in Germany and Switzerland, in addition to entering at #22 on the US Top New Artist Albums chart, and with its music videos has far exceeded 1 million views on YouTube so far – showcasing the fans’ enthusiasm for the band’s melting pot of influences. But still, AD INFINITUM are not resting on their praise and deliver another breathtaking music video for the song “Inferno”, keeping their fans pumped for even more to come!
“Inferno” starts its journey with a passionate introduction guided by the stunning voice of vocalist Melissa Bonny. Accompanied by a bittersweet amalgamation of piano, violins and echoing choirs, “Inferno” ignites a firestorm of howling riffs, sharply flinching chords and awe-inspiring solos, accented by Victorian harmonies. Visually, AD INFINITUM once again operate at the highest level and promise pure musical entertainment amid amazing scenic images!
AD INFINITUM on the new single: “One month since the release of Chapter II – Legacy and the positive feedbacks received went straight to our heart. We decided to keep the party going a little longer with one more video featuring one of the band’s favorite tracks on this second album. ”

Chapter II – Legacy once again showcases the indispensable creativity of AD INFINITUM – featuring twelve complex, marvelous tracks highlighting their sonic development and undeniable symphonic strength. Such talent can be witnessed with opener “Reinvented”, lurking with lovely piano tunes and erupting in intense riffage in the blink of an eye. Right away, the music reflects the extremely multifaceted voice of Melissa Bonny – ranging from crystal clear vocals to impressively powerful screams and menacing growls. Hailing from hell, hard-hitting “Afterlife” features the vocal power of Nils Molin (Amaranthe, Dynazty), merging in perfect harmony with Melissa’s incredibly haunting delivery. Songs like “Your Enemy” and cinematic grand finale “Lullaby” leave no scope for weakness and unveil the heaviest side of AD INFINITUM to date. This grasping hymn is far from lulling you to sleep, as the eclectically versatile sonic world of AD INFINITUM immediately induces you to listen to Chapter II – Legacy again, right from the beginning!
AD INFINITUM add: “Chapter II – Legacy holds a very special place in our heart. It represents months and months of hard work of four bandmates, for a result that we are proud to call “self-produced”. For this record, we decided to work without the influence of an external producer during the songwriting process and to team up with Elias Holmlid for the beautiful and epic orchestrations and of course with Jacob Hansen who recorded [vocals], mixed, mastered and participated to the post production. A younger and heavier sound that defines AD INFINITUM like never before.”
