Hey, a new Rogga Johansson project, band…rogcording!
With Furnace, which seems to be called Black Stone Church at first, he teamed up with Peter Svensson who is known for his work in Cult of the Fox and Void Moon, bands which are more in the Heavy and traditional Doom vein. On this album Rogga went more to the melodic yet melancholic side of Death Metal which was performed from in the 1990s. The mix of Edge of Sanity, Paradise Lost (think of “Gothic” and “Shades of God”), Amorphis’ “Tales from the Thousand Lakes” and the typical Rogga-groove makes this album quite enjoyable and a bit different what you mostly nowadays.
Yet, this album hasn’t been full-grown yet, but the second album “Dark Vistas” has been released just a couple of months after this one, so head to the review of that one, to see if there is any progress to mention. (Ricardo)
