THE INFERNO DOLL - New EP Out In December, Available For Streaming In Full

Fantasy, dark romance, bloodsucking creatures of the night,... this is all about the Canadian gothic/theatrical metal outfit The Inferno Doll. Now, the vocalist and songwriter Laura Vargas brings her demonic side to life in this solo project, which is on the eve of sharing the sophomore studio release Sacrifice, set to be released as a physical edition on 11th December. Vargas is bringing her musical vision to the next level. Inspired by horror movies, gothic literature, the legend of Dracula, and bands like Devil Doll and Theatres Des Vampires, Sacrifice will surely solidify The Inferno Doll's place in the worldwide underground scene as a dramatic, creative, and boundary-pushing act.

This 4-track EP is a follow-up to 2015's highly regarded album Dollmination: a complex tale of a woman who wakes up one morning to discover the alter ego that had been sleeping inside her has awoken and taken her hostage. The battle between them for the body rages throughout the musical story-line, as each entity struggles for dominance. Who will win? Is the doll the enemy? Or the woman herself? Or... Both?

Sacrifice continues this otherworldly tale, relating the story of The Inferno Doll’s years of silence. She’s being awakened and summoned by a High Priestess that controls the element of fire and gives her another chance to live in this world. As a result, this new EP is darker, more atmospheric and theatrical than what has been presented in Dollmination. Incorporating the Greek bouzouki work of experimental musician Dawn Howard, as well as the input of her producer Gabriel Hidalgo, Vargas serves up a hard-edged yet romantic soundscape. Anjey Boruta's macabre artwork, inspired by a nightmare Vargas had during the making of the album, ties it all together. The digital edition was already released and you can hear it in the player below. Link
