Noxium Ferus: True Norwegian terror metal!

Noxium Ferus - Dickslapped By The Devil.

The track Dickslapped By The Devil, from the Norwegian thrash metal band Noxium Ferus, the single is taken from their new album Blackasphemicon.

This song is inspired by true events, unmentionable ones. It also presents the comeback of guest artist Jontho Panthera, Ragnarok drummer and leader, after more than 5 years away from the drumkit due to injuries. Jontho Panthera shares his lifetime of extreme-metal drumming experience with Noxium Ferus, to fulfill this wicked and twisted track.  He also shares the mic with Espen Viking Dyngen on the last verse, adding demonic screams to the dark growls of Espen Viken Dyngen. Get ready- to be dickslapped by the Devil!

Dickslapped By The Devil was composed by Steinar Aven (guitar and bass), all lyrical and vocal arrangements by Espen Viking Dyngen, Guitars by Torgeir Alvakien Espedal, and drums plus guest vocals by Jontho Panthera of True Norwegian blackmetal icons- Ragnarok . Mixed, mastered and produced by Martin Gravdal.

Brutally hurtful, or viciously harmful, or ferociously obnoxious- take your pick! Noxium Ferus is the Latin form of these descriptions, and the band is completely uncompromising in their musical identity and content. Call it death metal, call it black metal, call it extreme metal- it doesn’t matter, it is brutal, and it is any way they want it to be! This Norwegian metal act call their style true Norwegian terror metal, and have the slogan “metal with balls” as a subtitle to their name.

 Catchy and riff-based, with a more intelligible growling style than most average death metal, they present their audible horror show with offensive humor and strong antireligious content. This is not superficial and random, this is deep, dark and from a churchgoer’s view- pure evil.

What started out with simple rock’n roll and thrash metal influences, turned into something much darker and fiercer, under Espen Dyngen’s diabolical guidance and beastly growls.

Noxium Ferus is a band project created by sheer coincidence. Having been writing lyrics for many black and death metal bands since the early 90’s, but never having done any vocals attempts himself- in March 2018 Espen Dyngen made a half-drunk attempt to improvise some growling to one of Steinar Aven’s music projects. It all turned out surprisingly well, against all expectations (especially Espen Dyngen’s own) , and Steinar Aven managed to persuade Espen Dyngen to start dedicating himself to this newly discovered vocal talent. And so new life was given to old songs, and Espen Dyngen finally got to sing his own lyrics himself!

Steinar being busy with many other projects, asked Espen to run the new band and create its concept. And henceforth the logo, imagery, lyrical content, and whole identity of the band took form out of Espen Dyngen’s dark mind. And Noxium Ferus was born.

Today Espen Dyngen is running the band together with his trusted right hand, Torgeir Alvakien Espedal, the new guitar player. Other members who have contributed are: Arne Gandrud (Massemord,Maosoleum of death), Ole Nic (Trelldom, Spitfire), Bjørn Beelzeböb Berge (Spitfire), Chris The headhunterRygh. Steinar Aven is active in several other bands, like Nattverd (blackmetal), Chinbjer (blackmetal), Aventyr (hard rock), Steinras (blackmetal), Amazing Assholes (hard rock), and others. So he is a busy guy.

Espen Viking Dyngen has been a part of the old Norwegian black metal scene since the early 90’s, but never as a musician until now. In the early days he was manager and promoter of Trelldom, and in close alliance with Gorgoroth. He also wrote lyrics and poems that were used by many different bands. His lyrics can be found on albums by Behemoth, Forgotten Woods, Ragnarok, Deathcult and Belphegor. He is now a regular part of the Belphegor blood family, helping Helmuth with lyrics, designs and stage artifacts. He designed and built Helmuth’s infamous micstand and blasphemic new sigil, and he created the iron crown and axes for Hoest’s sigil of Taake.

Noxium Ferus have recorded 9 songs, that are more or less finished, in a home studio, and are working on a 10th track which will be the title track for their planned 1st album- Blasphemicon.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (6811 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
