Today we present “Neptun I”, the first single from “INTER” – the debut album of German black metal quartet Fagus. Due for release on CD and digital formats on March 10, 2023.
“INTER” offers six epic dirges saturated with an eerily mesmerising ambience. The songs and arrangements are meticulously woven together; plenty of time and effort was invested into an extensive pre-production process, during which the material underwent a comprehensive transformation from the initial draft to its final version. Consequently, when Fagus entered the studio, they had forged a crystal-clear understanding of what they wanted to accomplish and were able to initiate full tunnel-vision.
The band commented:
Outer space is often associated with a repellent and bleak infinity, suffering continuous decay driven by the rules of mathematics and physics. The song “Neptun I” is a counterargument to this, telling a story of fellowship and bonding in a seemingly lifeless cosmos. The fact that everything comes to an end – the main theme of “Neptun I” – is set by a melancholic and mid-tempo instrumental arrangement, starting and ending with the billowing sounds of the intro and outro.
