FIDEI DEFENSOR "Cognoscenti" CD
Darker Than Black
Atmospheric (almost ambient), neo-classical black metal, steeped in occult tradition, and filled with arrogance and elitism. Not only do we find compositions executed to an impressive level of technical skill, but this mysterious opus overflows with obscure pathos and Faustian inspiration, emanating a sense of sorrowful misanthropy and cosmological wisdom. Coming out of nowhere, this is one of the most impressive albums we have ever heard from a previously unknown entity. Absolutely addictive.
