Ariosophic majesty from Northern Oregon. Formed in 2001, disbanded in 2013, Fanisk have released three full-length albums, “Die and Become” (Winter 2001), and “Noontide” (Summer 2003), and “Insularum” (2013). In 2006, Fanisk contributed a track titled “Nemesis” for Supernal’s “Anti-Geldof Compilation”. Vithólf has written lyrics for Thor’s Hammer (“Grand Isolation”, on “The Fate Worse Than Death”) and Infernum (all lyrics for “Farewell”). On the horizon is a split with Giboraltar. Listeners will surely enjoy all Eldrig material to date as well as future Vithólf material.

    Has anybody ever really found an original copy of Die and Become or Noontide?

    Listened to Fanisk for the first time a few days ago. Best musical encounter in a while. I seriously got goosebumps and shivers down my spine, lasting for a long time.

    Fucking right --> "Their albums aren't nearly "accessible" enough to be used as "propaganda". But who needs propaganda anyway, it is for the easily-swayed masses. Rather; lose yourself under the sonic waves they create with their music. Worth a lot more than considering it to be a cheap trick to gather "souls"

    "I'm convinced Noontide is the greatest black metal album ever." It is indeed one of the greatest black metal albums ever

    I just fully came to realize how perfectly this represents the Tradition.

    They split-up. I wonder if Omnium will still be released. Fanisk remains the pinnacle of metal.

    Probably the most talented band in all of black metal. Fantastic.

    Black Metal was supposed to be dark and offensive. Something difficult to get into. Sounds like this band is doing its job.

    "The lyrics are also totally inoffensive and actually quite beautiful anyway." - This.

    If one were to actually read Fanisk's lyrics, they would realize that their lyrics are much more esoteric than everything other NSBM band out there. Their lyrics are very interesting honestly. It's not like they're RAC where the ideology is pretty blatant.

    I for one can barely even understand what the vocalist is saying anyway.
