"Well, I loathe the nationalist (any degree of nationalism makes me sick, it's pure sheep shit) and fascist/nazi tumor that has been taking on the scene through these late years. So I don't give a fuck about the "scene". I won't tell no names, no bandnames I mean. They won't get any more publicity from me. We are an anarcho black metal band, that's one thing that sets us apart from the rest of the metalheads (not "metalminds", I must specify) that join "satan" and "fatherland" and "conceibe" mental thrash alike. FREEDOM is my first law. Satan (=freedom) is above any flag or god, nation or dogma..." - from an interview with Belathauzer of Filii Nigrantium Infernalium.

So FNI can be considered one of the earliest anarchist black metal acts. The band began to exist in 1989 under the name of Bacterion, but their first full-length album was released only in 2005. This isn't pure black metal, it's melodic black/thrash with some traditional heavy metal parts, but anyway it's pretty good. "Fellatrix Discordia Pantokrator" is a high-ranked release on Metal-Archives (99 points out of 100), and I may agree that it's a best thing you can find in the Portuguese underground. Sadly FNI aren't well-known outside Portugal...


  1. This IS pure black metal! Best anarcho BM band by far, and they were doing all that anarchist BM thing years before these crusties such as Iskra and Panopticon started to pretend to play black metal.

  2. They have paused for a long time, being one of the main reasons, portuguese black metal scene is full of nationalistic, pro right wing bands.
    Also, even in Portugal they're not very well recognized, altough they are an old band, even less in the punk scene.
