STREAMING: Fides Inversa’s “Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans”

Fides Inversa play black metal in a Primordial style, and they sure take it seriously. I mean, check out the interview below. I had to read it like three times to understand what they were talking about, and I think it basically comes down to “the devil.” Still, their music is pretty rad, so not only do we have the aforementioned interview, but we have an exclusive premiere of their new album, Mysterium Tre ...

STREAMING: Ne Obliviscaris “Citadel” + Brendan Brown (Ne Obliviscaris) interviewed

** Ne Obliviscaris may have a mouthful of a band name and their music may be at the mad end of progressive, but there’s something alluring about the Aussies’ approach.
