Inferion is a Black Metal band from Miami Fl. It was formed in 1996 by Nick Reyes, Juan Santiago, Juan Giraldo, Jean Alvarez, and William Barter. They began playing raw and noisy
black metal and covered old Dimmu Borgir, Darkthrone, Venom, Bathory and Burzum songs.
Their First release Infinite Dying Souls was recorded in 1998.

After the release of the album Jean Alvarez, William Barter, and Juan Santiago parted ways to
pursue different music projects. In 1999 Gary Bennett, Joel Cerda, and Armando Martinez joined the line-up and they released Given to the Ground. The sound was less Black Metal and more low tuned mid paced Doom/Death Metal. They distributed it mainly through DIY distros, and played shows to support the album. In 2002, The Given to the Ground line-up departed due to creative differences and The Cursed Path was released. Hjorvaard, Evil Bastard (Juan Restrepo) and Carlos Delgado joined to help rehearse new material, and play shows. In 2003 Inferion released Firewar. It was well received among the DIY distros, fans, and college
radio stations. It was raw, low-fi, and fast Black Metal. Inferion played various noise shows in Europe to promote the album. Frank Gross (ex- Kult ov Azazel) and Armando Martinez joined the line-up to rehearse new material and play shows for Firewar. They began writing new material for The Desolate in 2005 as a four piece. Armando Martinez, and Inferion also released a split in 2005 entitled The Art of Blasphemy which contained two songs from Firewar and one unreleased track. Over the next couple of years, Nick Reyes' other musical obligations as well as his obligation with the Army delayed the release of the album. The final mix and master was finished in 2011 by Nick Reyes and The Desolate was released 15 January 2012 via

In 2012 plans got under way to revamp and release Aborted by the Sun. The album was originally recorded in 2003 under the band name Farewell my Angel. At the time INFERION had put out the album Firewar that was getting some attention, and since this release was more Death Metal, Nick was going to release it next, but was never able to do so because the original mixes and masters were damaged on a hard drive that caught fire. In 2011 Nick was going through his storage unit looking for Army gear to pack for SFAS and came upon some old CDs and DVDs in the same tough box and among them was a DVD simply titled "ABTSMBU. He put it in the computer and found all the original mixes and masters for the album.
Nick re-recorded the bass, drums, and some vocals while he was trying out for the Special Forces, so this album is about determination, and the aggressive pursuit of goals. Since this album was semi structured, Nick just had to redo it in the way that he had envisioned it in his head during the selection course. So Nick based it around the guitars that were already there and tracked everything as soon as he got home a month later. Aborted by the Sun is a blast-beaten, aggressive melodic death metal album and another notch in the INFERION belt.
