FEN Begin Work On Fourth AlbumSunday, 15th June 2014
UK atmospheric post-black metallers FEN have announced that work on what will be their fourth full-length album has begun and is progressing well. As things stand, the band anticipates that it will be ready for release towards October/November of this year. The as-yet-untitled album will be a follow up to 2013’s Dustwalker and will once again be released on Aural Music’s Code666 label.
Commenting on what fans should expect from the new album, frontman The Watcher had this to say: “Our new work will be darker and more intense. Invoking a spectrum of atmospheres from the unknowable coldness of distant stars to the blood and earth that thrums beneath our feet. This record takes the approach we started on Dustwalker and builds on it further, whilst simultaneously acknowledging the more obscure-sounding roots of our debut. Bleaker, harder, yet at the same time more ambient, this record moves us further away from the accepted tropes of what ‘post’ black metal should sound like in 2014.”
