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”.  The back catalogue can be found on the band’s BandCamp page at https://foscor.bandcamp.com/music, as well as streaming in its entirety on FOSCOR’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/FOSCORbcn.

Dark Metallers FOSCOR have inked a deal with Alone Records for the release of what will be the band’s fourth full-length album “Those Horrors Wither”.  “Graceful Pandora”, a track from the album, will be released as a single in 7″ vinyl format on the 3rd of October and is available to pre-order now from http://www.thestonecirclestore.com/ , can be heard above and at https://soundcloud.com/alone-records/graceful-pandora

Slated to appear on the 25th November in both CD and vinyl versions, “Those Horrors Wither” marks a change of direction for FOSCOR, taking the band’s usual style of ’90’s Black and Extreme Metal and adding touches of Doom and Dark Rock, together with traces of Prog.   FOSCOR has chosen a somewhat unusual direction with the guest appearances on the album.  Instead of the expected vocals or instrumental solos, the guest artists have written and performed connecting passages between the tracks.

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”.  The back catalogue can be found on the band’s BandCamp page at https://foscor.bandcamp.com/music, as well as streaming in its entirety on FOSCOR’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/FOSCORbcn.

Having recently released all three of their previous albums digitally, Dark Metallers FOSCOR have now released some rare tracks including previously unreleased material, and material that has long since sold out, as well as the entire soundtrack of their 10th Anniversary live DVD “Deu Anys Vers la Foscor”. Included in the new releases are the XERIÓN cover “Na Noite Dos Tempos” which was originally included in the 2002 split Cd/Tape “XERIÓN vs. FOSCOR”; the 2008 track “The Ghost Sonata” which was exclusively composed for the never released “Toteninsel: A Tribute to Arnold Böcklin” album (which is available for free download); and the song “The Other’s Voice” which was originally included in the long-since sold out 2010 split 7” EP with NECROSADIST “Onslaught of Black Putrefaction”. The new material, together with the 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”, all three of which come with their individual booklets, can be found at https://foscor.bandcamp.com/music

Commenting on the decision to release previous material digitally, frontman Fiar said: “FOSCOR is entering a whole new phase of its existence, and many new fans have started following the band, fans that perhaps don’t really know our history, and it seemed like the ideal way to let them find out about us. When we released the three albums we offered them for free download for a month as a thank you to old and new fans, and we received an extraordinary response, with many people actually paying for the albums, rather than downloading them free, and that certainly gives us a lot of confidence for the future”.
As well as on BandCamp, the back catalogue, including the new material is also available to stream on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/FOSCORbcn

FOSCOR recently completed work on their fourth full-length album “Those Horrors Wither” and are currently looking for a label. Starting out with a sound that was traditional 90’s Black Metal, FOSCOR have, over the years, refined their style to include Doom and Dark Rock, majestic interludes and a healthy flirtation with Prog. Unafraid to experiment, FOSCOR have taken the unusual step of asking the guests set to appear on “Those Horrors Wither”, to write and perform connecting passages between the tracks, rather than a straightforward guest appearance on an individual track, something which the band feels has worked extremely well, and gives the album a sense of individuatly.

Dark Metallers FOSCOR have today 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”.  Each album includes  lyrics and information.  All three albums will be released digitally from the 6th March, and will be available for free download for the first month.  They can be found at https://foscor.bandcamp.com/music

As well as on BandCamp, the back catalogue will also be available to stream on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/FOSCORbcn.

With over a decade in the music scene, FOSCOR recently announced that the band’s natural musical progression and development has led to a change in style away from the traditional 90’s Black Metal mixed with other classical and modern extreme styles, for which they became know.  Breaking free from the restrictions the genre places on bands has enabled FOSCOR to expand their sound to include shades of Doom and Dark Rock, majestic interludes and a healthy flirtation with Prog.  Frontman Fiar is quick to point out though that fans will still recognise the distinctive FOSCOR style, which the band have not rejected, but have made better, and which will be very much in evidence in the band’s newly completed  fourth full-length album “Those Horrors Wither”.

Currently in search of a label for “Those Horrors Wither”, FOSCOR has chosen a somewhat unusual direction with the guest appearances on the album.  Instead of the expected vocals or instrumental solos, the notable guests have written and performed connecting passages between the tracks.

When Dark Metallers FOSCOR celebrated the Tenth Anniversary of their debut album in 2012, they were not just marking a decade of music; they were also drawing a line under one era in the band’s history, and preparing to embark on the next and most ambitious one.   With work on FOSCOR’s fourth full-length album now completed, and a complete visual overhaul of their online presence and logo, the groundwork for the new phase in the band’s career is well and truly established.

Formed in 1997 in Barcelona, in the Catalan region of Spain, FOSCOR took the traditional ‘90s Black Metal and mixed it with other classical and modern extreme styles to create a sound that has seen them through the release of 3 full-length albums, a live DVD commemorating their 10th Anniversary, 2 split releases and contributions on Official KATATONIA and ENSLAVED tribute albums, all of which have garnered them respect and a solid, and ever-growing, following.  Now, with their forthcoming album, which will be titledThose Horrors Wither”, FOSCOR has honed its considerable musical skills and decided to take the first gigantic step away from the confines of Black Metal, towards an expansive multidimensional sound that encompasses shades of Doom and Dark Rock, Ambient interludes and a healthy flirtation with Prog.  It is a step that most clearly defines the band’s personal approach to their work, both musically and aesthetically, to date.

Commenting on the new sound and the new image of FOSCOR, founder and guitarist Falke and frontman Fiar had this to say: “It’s really not that strange that we would be moving in a different direction from the one we started out on because it’s a natural progression that comes from experience.  We’re not saying that our long-time fans will wake up one morning and not recognise FOSCOR any more, not at all, because we have a particular style that is recognisable as FOSCOR – but we’ve taken that style and made it into something better.  You could say that the new FOSCOR is evolution, not revolution, and, that being said, it actually needs new colours to define how we interpret “Darkness”, and IDEOPHONY, who has previously worked with us on design, is the perfect partner to work with us in physically visualising our new direction”.

FOSCOR are currently looking for a label to release “Those Horrors Wither”, which includes some notable guest artists, who, somewhat unusually, rather than contributing the usual vocals or solos, have written and performed connecting passages between the tracks.  More information about FOSCOR can be found on the band’s website, which has been newly designed, at http://www.foscor.com

Having begun recording their fourth full-length album in March of this year, and following their recent success at the Primavera Sound Festival, Dark Metallers FOSCOR have issued an update on the progress of the album, as well as a news of other projects that the band’s members are involved in.  Work on the new album, which will be titled “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, GHOST, CATHEDRAL, HEXVESSEL, CODE, AURA NOIR, PRIMORDIAL ) for mastering around August time before beginning a label search.

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.

FOSCOR’s members have also been kept busy with other projects over the past few months.  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.  More information about GRAVEYARD can be found at https://www.facebook.com/deathmetalgraveyard

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.  More information about SOUL ASIDE can be found at http://soulaside.bandcamp.com/

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” can be seen at http://youtu.be/HcdO21-cQhE
