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

Finsterforst Zerfall cover
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.

The centerpiece and culmination of it all has to be the 36-minute long (!) “Ecce Homo” though, that unfolds into a majestic post metal journey crowning Finsterforst’s songwriting skills and career to date. A complex and mature piece of art that will without any doubt mesmerize old and new fans alike!

Today the band is sharing with us a first single and lyric video to the track “Fluch des Seins”!

Says the band: “This 5-minutes excerpt of “Fluch des Seins” already shows the improvement we made since our previous album "Mach dich frei". In this track you can hear some special guest appearances within the choir works. Convince yourself, check it out and dive into wonderfull dark atmospheres”.

Set for release on August 2nd, 2019, with Napalm Records, the album pre-order has just started here.
