Deathspell Omega shows us once again why they deserve the hype they get in the black metal world. Fas- Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum is a great album, executing their musical vision perfectly. When you first hear the album, it might not sound anything like black metal for the simple fact that it sounds unlike any other black metal there is out there. However, the more you hear it, the sooner you'll realize that it is indeed black metal, only that they have rearranged the rules of black metal and turning it into some whole new beast. The tremolo picking, the blast beats, and, most importantly, the bleak atmosphere is still there, only that they have been utilized and done in a different way. So, if you're a fan of experimental metal, black metal, or just want to hear something that is an absolute mindfuck, do not fail to give this album a listen to.
