Finsterforst

The Black Forest – marked by mystical landscapes, its spirit rules the southwestern German souls. Its wealth of brute power and mightiness led a dark horde to the decision to embody the beauty of the Black Forest in a musical way, back in 2004.

Hitting the stages in 2007, a decent public attention was attracted and after the publication of the debut EP “Wiege der Finsternis” and the debut album “Weltenkraft”, the horde found a new home at the German record label Einheit Produktionen.

The second studio album “…zum Tode hin” was introduced to the public in early 2009 and could deeply satisfy a wide range of different
musical preferences.

It’s the year 2013 – to date, a frightening large amount of knuckles of pork along with a greatly exaggerated quantity of Schnaps was consumed and countless breathtaking concerts were performed. With a new singer at the front and a third fully produced studio album, the band signed a contract with the Austrian label Napalm Records. “Rastlos” represents the new status of Finsterforst and exceeds everything that has been done before.

The era of Black Forest Metal has begun!

Lucifer’s Child

Lucifer’s Child is an unholy creation of George Emmanuel (Rotting Christ, ex­-Chaostar) and Stathis Ridis (Nightfall) based in Athens, Greece and formed in 2013.

Their music serves a spiritual introduction to the atmospheric world of wiccan’s summoning. Pulsating the energy of ritualistic lyrics and the horrifying electrism of black music LCFR create a unity between the sound and the spiritual idea that each creation serves to the listeners.

The Recordings of “The Wiccan” record took place in Athens, Greece during summer of 2014 delivering 8 blasphemed seeds at their most horrifying metal sound.

In March 2015 were contracted to a Norway based record label called Dark Essence Records, who swore to spread their musical infection worldwide via Compact Disks, Vinyl Records and Digital Downloads.

In time, this unholy alliance will communicate you through any of the known media for becoming a LCFR’s summoner yourself through Live Rituals and by purchasing sacred objects of Wiccan’s kit.

Blending progressive and darkly intense music influenced by their Scandinavian melodeth heroes, the EP received acclaim worldwide and began a flood of shows up and down their native UK with multiple highlights including an invitation to Bloodstock Open Air 2015. Building upon their rapid momentum, the band soon caught the attention of Kolony Records, a deal was signed and the band began work on their debut full length.

‘New Dawn’ was released June 2016 and was praised “as an effortless display of bravado and musicianship in ways that I can’t soundly describe,” by USA’s New Noise Magazine and an impressive debut from the UK’s Metal Hammer. “Countless Skies have what it takes to really blossom in to something original and beautiful… a band with great skill and even greater potential,” stated Zero Tolerance Magazine.

With applause the world over following the release of ‘New Dawn’ the band embarked on a UK tour with Finland’s Whispered, several shorter tours followed throughout 2016/2017 including their first stints abroad including a tour of Ireland and appearances at multiple European festivals including Dark Troll Festival.

With the ‘New Dawn’ cycle coming to an end and energised by the positive reception of their debut Countless Skies have began work on their sophomore album. Another dawn is on the horizon…
