Deathspell Omega Double Post 2/2: Trilogy

God of terror,
very low dost thou bring us,
very low hast thou brought us...

Si Monvmentvm Reqvires Circvmspice

Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum


Unfortunately as mentioned, Paracletus isn't for another 2 months, and there is no known cover art yet so enjoy that lovely invention.

EDIT: Cover art motha fucka!

As mentioned, Paracletus should, by all previous accounts, conclude the Trilogy, starting back with SMRC.

What is the Trilogy about exactly? It is an examination of several things. SMRC was about the relationship between God, and Man. Fas, was about Satan's fall, and soon, Paracletus will (if the title is anything to go by, which it often is) be about Jesus, and Heaven. A Trilogy of Man, Satan, and God.

I already wrote a great deal of praise for SMRC in a previous post last year, so I'll go into Fas this time.

Fas is by no means an easy album. It is the only Deathspell Omega piece that I have difficulty in listening to. It is a simply a cacophonous explosion of sound and textures that are simply... not enjoyable to listen to. As another stated to me earlier "It is an album I turn on, then lay down on the cold floor listening to." There is MUCH to Fas, but simply listening to it will not reveal it. Fas is an album that requires your absolute attention, and repeated listening, to hear just how complex and deep this album really is. In my case however, I simply rarely ever have the time to tackle this album. Hopefully you do.

Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum



The Shrine Of Mad Laughter

Bread Of Bitternes

The Repellent Scars Of Abandon & Election

A Chore For The Lost


Also, I reuploaded SMRC since the previous link is dead. Also mediafire apparently upped the file limit to 200 mb, so no more 2 parts.


  1. Bloody Brilliant! Cant wait for Paracletus. These guys have opened up new doors in the Black Metal world...Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum was a little hard to bare at first but a few listens, getting passed those lightning fast blast beats and some weed , you will discover true magick....

  2. This shit is sick it's like Cleric meets Gojira meets Vildhjarta meets Gorgoroth
