Deathspell Omega's Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum is Hellish chaos in aural form. The music is an ever changing storm, whirling around in a series of ever changing and discordant notes before lapsing into silence or eerie passages of smooth bass and sparse and haunting notes or even occassional beautiful melodies and harmonics that creep in for a few seconds before being carried away in an infernal storm of discord. The music is in-your-face, rife with blast beats, speed, intensity and evil vocals, but does it abstractly. The riffs bend crazily, moving from one to another, while remaining oddly coherent and memorable. They're mind boggling, harsh and utterly evil, though sometimes beautiful, and all around malevolently intelligent. This is especially noticable in the lyrics, which carry the same insane and brilliant genius as in Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice. Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum is Hell incarnate in music.
