Having recently signed with Alone Records, and with a new full-length album, “Those Horrors Wither”, set to appear in November, preceded by a 7″ single from the album, Dark Metallers FOSCOR have today released a video for the afore-mentioned single “Graceful Pandora”, ahead of its release. The video can be seen below and at http://youtu.be/zQHId-0-vTM
Directed and edited by FOSCOR guitarist Falke, the video is written and produced by the band, with Adrià Escanilla behind the camera, assisted by RFH Photography, who also designed the costumes, and with Irati Aguado as Pandora and J.F. Serra as Zeus. Commenting on the theme behind the video, the band had this to say:
“The song “Graceful Pandora” from the upcoming “Those Horrors Wither” album was chosen because within the song itself can be found are a couple of very important elements that allow a better understanding of the album title and its contents. As the title indicates, the song is based on the myth of Pandora and the horrors she unleashed when curiosity tempted her to open the box. Those horrors represent the primal fears and subconscious horrors that we all have within us, and once they are exposed we can either accept them as the dark side of ourselves, or we can allow them to affect our sanity. It’s pretty much a timeless theme and we thought that Zeus and Pandora were the perfect vehicles to symbolise the spread of those horrors over mankind and to teach us that we can either use them to enrich our lives, albeit in a disturbing way, or we can allow them to suck us into a hole of despair”.
The “Graceful Pandora” 7″ single, with artwork by Mia Calderone which depicts Pandora opening the Box and realising that she is able to reach beyond the suffering she has unleashed and discover the good behind the experience, will hit the streets on the 3rd October and can be pre-ordered now from http://www.thestonecirclestore.com/
“Those Horrors Wither”, which will be the band’s fourth full-length album, will be released on the 25th November in both CD and vinyl versions, and is somewhat of a change of direction for FOSCOR, whose usual style of ’90’s Black and Extreme Metal has matured significantly as the band adds touches of Doom and Dark Rock, together with traces of Prog to their sound.
Formed in Barcelona, Spain, in 1997, FOSCOR recently released their entire back catalogue which includes the band’s first three full-length albums – 2004’s “Entrance to the Shadows’ Village”, 2007’s “The Smile of the Sad Ones” and 2009’s “Groans to the Guilty”.
