This is different and for someone surely difficult to swallow. Forlesen present their debut two track debut album and even though there are just two tracks this record has a duration of about 40 minutes.
The two tracks roughly cut the album in half. As far as the genre is concerned, Forlesen is labelled as experimental avant-garde Black Metal. But are they a second Ulver? I don‘t think so. Different bands in the same genre can play really different Metal, for example Darkthrone and Abruptum.
Musically this record is a feast for the listener‘s senses. It is best heard at night with closed eyes, so there is nothing that could distract you from this journey. A journey through clouds of fog, mountains, lakes, woods or even some isolated castle.
Everything you see, you see it through the eyes of a bird flying over a beautiful landscape created by wonderful sounds.
This Californian trio create a perfect musical „trip“. Enjoy and free your mind. (HaCeBo)
