FoR have always been a well honed and eclectic American black metal band, but as they have progressed, their art has taken on an even more impressive and beautiful atmosphere as their songs developed and writing style grown to carry the listener deep into the woods with classical and folk elements. The band's first full-length release for Bindrune Recordings, The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood, is a stirring collection of majestic melodies and a primordial essence that embraces the staples of the black metal genre, but the spirit and atmosphere of the music goes far beyond the realms of modern man. Expansive soundscapes. Beautiful folk/classical compositions. Organic black metal urgency that awakens the listeners yearning for the forest.
The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood is off to be mastered by Sacred Sound Studios towards the end of the week and we look forward to unleashing this CD in June. The LP version will surface by the end of the year as Bindrune will be working with Flenser Records to bring this opus to the analog format. More details on that, and a FoR band page will surface on this site in the coming days/months.
