NSP 020 US :  Forlorn Citadel - Songs of Mourning / Dusk CD

Release date: November 23rd, 2018


Forlorn Citadel is an Atmospheric Black Metal project from Australia, formed in 2017 by multi-instrumentalist Solace.

Originally conceived as a Medieval/Dungeon Synth style project, a short demo entitled “Dusk” was released in the early months of 2017.

The addition of traditional Black Metal elements on the 2018 demo “Mourning” solidified a more defined sound of which Solace wishes to expand upon.

Forlorn Citadel is currently working on a debut album with plans to release in 2019.


This release features both demos and comes highly recommended for fans of Epic Black Metal á la Summoning and Dungeon Synth á la Mortiis.


The CD is released as part of the Northern Silence Underground Series and comes in jewel case, limited to 500 copies.

Reviews:

"This really is a great start, and if you’re a fan of black metal, dungeon synth and ambient music this is worth getting hold of as it plays on the strengths of those genres and makes the most of the common ground shared by them, and as such the music presented will appeal to most people who like those styles I expect. Being honest, I think Forlorn Citadel is a band we’ll hear great music from in the future and hopefully will be a band recognised for doing so. Watch this space folks."
