2020 release. Venerated black metal specialists Dark Fortress return with 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 it’s predecessors. These musical themes play out fiercely in ‘Coalescence’, ‘The Spider in the Web’, ‘Pazuzu’, and the pivotal title track. Here, Dark Fortress prove that they remain committed to black metal s netherworld spark.
