About this album

‘Fas – Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum’ (Latin for “Divine Law – Go, Accursed, into Everlasting Fire”) is a 2007 album by the band Deathspell Omega. The album takes its title from the Vulgate translation of Matthew 25:41, “discedite a me maledicti in ignem æternum”, usually quoted as “ite maledicti in ignem aeternum”. The album was released as a digipak with a 20-page booklet on July 16, 2007 and in the United States on July 17, 2007 through The Ajna Offensive. Ajna has licensed the CD version for the U.S., with southern lord records assisting the distribution and importing a substantial amount of vinyl copies.

The line “Every human being not going to the extreme limit is the servant or the enemy of man” in “A Chore for the Lost” comes from Inner Experience by the French post-surrealist Georges Bataille, a frequent source of lyrical inspiration for Deathspell Omega.

    Cover art pretty much shows how I feel when I listen to Deathspell Omega.

    least favorite overall by far. I love A Chore For The Lost, it's one of my top 10 Deathspell Omega songs, but, the only other song i even like is The Shrine Of Mad Laughter...

    The melodies of this record redefine the compositional basis of black metal.

    I can't really call this a "masterpiece", but it's still a great album, it oozes a lot of experience and shows great musical skills, but there is still room for improvement, best album from them yet, in my personal opinion

    this is the best album i've heard in my whole life (2). Fas>>>Paracletus; but atmospherically, and compositionally, they're two VERY different releases. Each album is flawless though.

    this album goes so well hand in hand with Elend's A World In Their Screams.
