The New Haven, CT based black metallers Ipsissimus have selected the track “The Third Secret of Fatima” as the band’s first single off the band’s Metal Blade Records debut “The Way of Descent,” due out May 24th. The track is streaming exclusively on Stereo Gum’s metal column Haunting the Chapel, just click here to listen.
Drummer Haimatokharmes comments on the track, One of the songs Metal Blade will be promoting for the album is “The Third Secret of Fatima.” We are especially proud of this one on account of its synthesis of blast, melody, ritual drums, all played in the old fashion. Longtime fans know it from our self-released “Fatima EP” and I must say it is the song people usually tell us is their favorite out of the trinity. The lyrics are a collaborative effort (written in English and Coptic), but they are straight old-school Satanism, a blend of blasphemy and devil-worship. Bless!
