Polish black metallers TOTENMESSE reveal the new album “FIKTIONLUST”

Five years after the release of the first full-length “To”, Totenmesse return with their own brand of black metal. The new album “FIKTIONLUST” consists of eight brand new tracks recorded, mixed and mastered at Impressive Art by Przemysław Nowak.

Listen to the album in full now:

The cover of the album is a painting “Dwarfs and stilt walkers” by a well-known Polish artist, Grzegorz Stec, while the album’s layout was made by Sars (Furia, wędrowcy~tułacze~zbiegi).

The Awakening begins with the storm…

Totenmesse – meaning ‘requiem’ or ‘mass of the dead’ in German – were formed in 2016, and recorded their first release Demo 2017 a year later. No strangers to extreme metal, the band have honed their craft in groups such as Odraza, MasseMord, Deception and Hell United. This is reflected in their 2018 debut album, “To”, with its majestic, powerful and colossal sound, while the lyrics explore death and how the human mind perceives it. In addition to the seven original tracks, “To” featured a cover of King Crimson’s iconic “20st Century Schizoid Man”. “Fiktionlust” will be the band’s second full-length album and will be released on 3 November 2023 via Pagan Records.
