FIDES INVERSA set release date for new W.T.C. album

Five years on from their Osmose-released debut, Hanc Aciem Sola Retundit Virtus (The Algolagnia Divine)Fides Inversa strike with their second album, Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans, set for international release on October 31st via W.T.C. Productions. In those five years, the Italian band have been honing their onstage assault all across the stages of Europe, their rituals becoming real celebrations of zealotry. That experience surely shows across the bold, finessed canvas of Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans, where “black metal” is rendered not as a definition but as an alternately life-giving/life-destroying force. Classicist yet paying no lip service to tradition, Fides Inversa invested their very souls in the creation of this second opus: exhaustive spiritual research and a total immersion inside the darkest manifestations of what the German theologist Rudolf Otto called “the numinous.” The divine, in its most terrifying forms, takes life from chaotic sounds and revealed words whose intent is to represent the mystic terror and the undefeatable fascination of Death, the human nullification, in favor of a complete prostration to the One whose light is spread out of the darkest vacuum. Ascend and descend with Fides Inversa'sMysterium Tremendum et Fascinans… Cover and tracklisting are as follows:

SOLACE OF REQUIEM: Casting Ruin Out Now on ViciSolum Productions

ViciSolum Productions has given worldwide release to Casting Ruin, the new album from technical blackened death metal trio SOLACE OF REQUIEM.

The fourth release from this criminally under-recognized extreme metal act, Casting Ruinis without a doubt the band’s finest hour. These nine highly evolved, yet relentlessly violent tracks are as listenable as they are devastating. ChroniclesOfChaos.com called Casting Ruin ”one mean, complex, stupefying and brutal motherfucker,” but words alone cannot describe this contender for 2014’s most metal album. 

Casting Ruin is available on digital and CD formats at vicisolumrecords.bandcamp.com/album/casting-ruin 

Check out the official music video for album track “Soiling the Fields of Putridity” at the links below.
