1) Ignis Fatuus is a progressive metal band from Oulu, Finland, founded by Ilkka Harjula and Jarno Juntunen in 1992. The very first demo from this two-headed group was published in 1993. This unnamed tape contained very hard metal music both extremely fast and slow. The influences were Carcass and Paradise Lost at that time.

2) Ignis Fatuus is a darkwave project from Lawrence, KS, United States, founded by Christus Snipes. In 1998 Ignis Fatuus released an impressive debut album, "The Futility Goddess" (on UK label Cold Spring). Their astonishing mixture of neoclassical darkwave and ambient (with amazing vocal contributions from Jarboe) gathered a load of positive feedbacks from everywhere. In 2005 Ignis Fatuus, joined by Melysa Baucom, signed with Eibon Records (Italy) and came back with "In Our Mad Bliss". Dark, warm, rich, gloomy music that transcends boundaries and defies definitions. Fairy-tinted musical scenarios, impressive female vocals, a sensual and seductive journey through a gently illuminated nocturnal world.
3) Ignis Fatuus was a death doom metal band from Żagań, Poland, formed in 1993. They released the full-length "Mental Gardens" in 1996, and the demo "Ignis Ardens" in 1998.
