Old Forest: Black Metallers Offer Second Lyric Video Despair is My Name As Appetiser For Upcoming Album Mournfall

As another appetiser for their forthcoming album Mournfall, Old Forest release a new lyric video Despair is my Name. This track epitomises the album with its mix of epic Doom riffs over a backbone of haunting and ethereal Black Metal.

The upcoming album Mournfall continues the path forged on Old Forest‘s last opus by further developing their own individual mix of early 90s style Black Metal with epic Doom riffs. Owing as much to the early works of Paradise Lost or Candlemass as to that of Emperor or Darkthrone, the resulting epicly mournful and ambient take on Black Metal is perhaps not unsurprising.  Accompanied by melancholic lyrics weaving tales of misery and woe, it is perhaps not to be understated how dark the 8 songs can get over the 41 minutes. Additional bonus CD material is taken from the minidisc master of 2001’s unreleased demo Sussex Hell Hound (a low-fi, cassette transfer of which is available to download for FREE at www.deathtomusic.com)

Packaged with artwork by Lenny Bridgeman and mastered by Kjetil Ottersen, the album will be released as both on Digipac CD and streaming services on 23/04/21 via Death To Music productions

Bass player & vocalist Chris/McThrashy states: “We wanted to step up the production on this album, on our past releases we had a tour or album launch coming up, so the mixing side of things was always rushed as fark. Because of the current plague, we could take as long as we wanted and get it right. Dennis Koehne has done an amazing job capturing our niche sound of Aussie thrash metal that we are known for but also raising the bar in terms of matching the quality of other European releases. Some songs lean on our party-thrash elements while others dig deep into more serious topics – Hope you bloody dig it!”
