Finsterforst to release new studio album “Zerfall” on August 2nd 2019

Their fifth studio album, “Zerfall”, sees Black Forest Metal act Finsterforst return to the serious and elegiac soundscapes of classics such as the critically acclaimed “Mach Dich Frei” (2015).

Enslaved - Roadburn Live

Roadburn has become a mecca for all the stoner and semi-alternative rock and metal bands, plus hipsters. Enslaved used to be a typical “Black/Viking” what-not sort of band, during their first ten years of existence... switching to a much more accessible style after the turn of the millennium, starting with “Monumension” with often softer passages and clean vocals… becoming more of a norm and making them accessible to a larger audience.
