The two-headed Italian entity known as Fides Inversa released their debut album, Hanc Aciem Sola Retundit Virtus (The Algolagnia Divine), in 2009. At last, they have readied their second full-length assault. Bearing the title Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans, it will be released by W.T.C. Productions on October 31, 2014. Included within are seven songs identified only by Roman numerals, of which we bring you the premiere of “VI“.
“VI” burns like a bonfire blazing under a black sky, riffs flickering and roaring, with crackling drumbeats and zealous infernal incantations rising over the conflagration. It’s a monument to the cleansing light of chaos that explodes from the void, fueled by an infectious guitar melody that peals with the sound of ritual bells.
Or, to put it in more prosaic terms, this is hot-blooded black metal that’s both scathing and charismatic.
W.T.C. Productions has an enviable track record of signing bands who deliver musical extremity with skills to match their infernal passions, and it appears they have done it again with Fides Inversa. “VI” alone is a sign that the album will be well worth exploring in its entirety.

This song seems a mix between Deathspell Omega and Inquisition. Great vocals!
That was quite enjoyable. Will seek out more. Thanks!
Their first album was great, and this seems to be a fitting evolution. WTC Productions is really killing it lately – looking forward to this!
DsO meets Inquisition, with vocals that remind me of Watain. Nice.
That’s huge! HUUUGEEE!
SATANIC ART AT ITS BEST
That was absolutely astounding. I’m not a huge fan DsO or Inquisition… it seems their confluence is what I’ve always wanted.
there’s a definite Inquisition feel, as well as some DSO and maybe a hint of Armaggeda in the vocal arrangement. fucking excellent!
