Venerated black metal specialists DARK FORTRESS return with a new album, Spectres from the Old World! After a six-year gap, Germany’s darkest sons continue where Venereal Dawn (2014) left off conceptually—the birth-death lifecycle of the universe as told by spacetime—but are expanding DARK FORTRESS’ musical horizons by descending faster and with spiteful intent into the cosmic abyss. Indeed, Spectres from the Old World is more direct, more aggressive than its predecessors.
At no time in DARK FORTRESS’ history have they reached so far out into the darkness, only to find the domine of astronomy non-existent, the end merely an end. Recorded, engineered, mixed, and mastered by V. Santura at Woodshed Studios throughout 2019, Spectres from the Old World marks an important milestone in DARK FORTRESS’ journey along actual and spiritual left-hand paths. Glimpse into the endless black of the universe on Spectres from the Old World.

- Nascence (Intro)
