Atmospheric U.K. black metal group Fen today announced details on a fifth full-length album, set to see release via Aural Music imprint Code666 this coming March.
Titled “Winter,” the six-track production was captured by Jaime Gomez Arellano at the Orgone Studios in London (Ulver, Altar Of Plagues, Grave Miasma, Primordial, Solstafir) and stands among the band’s most enticing piece of work yet for the English three-piece; rich in sound, beguilingly delicate, and shrouded in darkness.
The six “Winter” movements are thematically and compositionally linked and ideally, the whole record is intended to be listened to in one sitting to allow the full journey to be absorbed.
“Winter,” which comes sheathed in the cover art of Fen bassist/vocalist Grungyn, will be available in standard CD, double black vinyl limited to 300 copies, and digital formats in North America on March 10th followed by a European street date of March 17th.
