Fides Inversa are a band from Italy that plays a very satanic and occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Historia Nocturna" which will be released in July by W.T.C Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the album along with a brief use of chants and spoken word parts before going into a heavier musical direction, When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly angry yet grim sounding black metal screams while a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar leads being done in a very chaotic style when they are utilized.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also bringing in a very modern style but also retaining the old school spirit as well as few tracks also adding in a brief use of semi melodic chants. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Fides Inversa are a very great sounding satanic and occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Wanderer's Call And Orison" "I Glance You With A Touch..." and "I Am The Iconoclasm". 8 out of 10.
