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). The Germans’ emotional brand of post black metal gives vent to endless rage with pounding riffs and astonishing orchestral elements – and then flows into somber choirs.

Týr - Hel

Týr returns after a six year hiatus, that some festivals “sold” as a farewell, with a new album for Metal Blade Records along with a couple of new members in the form of a new drummer Tadeusz Rieckmann and guitarist Attila Vörös (who most might remember from his Nevermore/Sanctuary live sessions) both from Hungary, thus breaking the tradition of the band of featuring Faroesian musicians only.
