Post rock trio Esben And The Witch today reveals details and the first track from forthcoming album “Older Terrors.” This will be the band’s first album with Season of Mist, released worldwide on November 4th, 2016. Check out the song “Sylvan” below. Esben And The Witch comments:
“This song is about a fire raging through an ancient forest. About primal forces, wild and uncontrollable loosed upon the land and how we try to might find meaning and even beauty in a burning world.”
The band continues on about the new album: “‘Older Terrors’ was written over the course of a year in our adopted home of Berlin. It began life in a basement, just Rachel and a bass guitar and sprawled out from there. We spent last winter fleshing these songs out in our rehearsal space up in an old tower block and in April we finally recorded them at a studio in the centre of the city.
“In this digital age we wanted to create an album that contained four tracks that would work as a whole but that could also be separated and stand alone. Each one carving its own path. This record is dedicated to the sublime. To Edward Young’s Night Thoughts, John Martin’s apocalyptic visons, Caspar David Friedrich’s forays into the forest and to the sparks of light that glimmer in times of utter darkness.”
