FOSCOR - Updates About Forthcoming Album, News Of Side Projects

  • Print

Barcelona (Spain) based dark metallers Foscor have bugun recording their fourth full lenght album in March this year and now the band issued an update about their progress. Work on the new album already entitled Those Horrors Wither is progressing well, with almost all the clean vocals now having been recorded, which brings the recording close to being finished. The band plans to enter the  Nautilus Studios in Barcelona again in late July to begin mixing, and once this is finished, they estimate that the album will be ready to send to the Orgone Studios (Ulver, Cathedral, Ghost, Primordial,...) for mastering. Then they'll begun with a search for a label.
As previously hinted Those Horrors Wither will expand Foscor’s sound out of the strict confines of black metal, a direction the Barcelona-based band, who celebrated their 10th Anniversary last year, could clearly be seen to be taking since the release of their previous album, 2009’s Groans To The Guilty. Guest performers have been lined up for the album, but it is expected that their contributions will be somewhat out of the ordinary in that they will serve as “interludes” throughout, that is to say they will be used as connecting passages between tracks, rather than performances on specific tracks.
Beside that Foscor's members have been busy also with their side-projects. Frontman and bassist Fiar has taken on the role of live session vocalist for Spanish death metallers Graveyard and can be seen appearing with the band on various dates throughout the summer and autumn, including the Obscene Extreme Fest in the Czech Republic, Party.San in Germany and the South Bangers Fest IV in Spain. Guitarist Falke in the meantime has also been working on other projects. The first is Soul Aside, a band that he formed in 2010 fusing metal with alternative rock. The band’s debut self-titled album was released in April of this year. Falke, who is responsible for Foscor’s own video for the track "I Tornà de les Cendres" as well as the band’s 10th Anniversary DVD, has also directed, edited and co-produced the latest music video for the nature driven black metal band Lux Divina. The video, for the track "After Great Pain" from Lux Divina’s recently released album Possessed By Telluric Feelings. You can watch the video over HERE. More informations about Foscor and their new studio opus should be revealed soon. Link
