Fides Inversa’s second album, “Mysterium Tremendum et Fascinans”, is a classicist work without paying lip service to tradition. The band 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. This is probably suitable for fans of Acherontas, Deathspell Omega and bands inbetween.
