fórn The Departure of Consciousness (CD, £13.95)label: Gilead Media
The Departure of Consciousness is a devastating debut record, without question. It is an offering of completely destructive energy. Throughout the album Fórn ascend to a realm of apocalyptic riffage and scathing vocals, giving way only briefly to lulls of despondent melody. Before any glimmer of hope is capable of penetrating the filth and the grime, this entity of misery plunges back to immeasurable depths and broods in despair. This is a seething album of bleak and blistering atmosphere, it is a work of doom absolute. Many of you that have been following the label know I rarely release CDs, but I was so taken by this album that I needed to work with Fórn in any way possible. The Departure of Consciousness was originally released on vinyl by Vendetta Records, and will be presented on CD by Gilead Media in a heavy-duty gatefold jacket with artwork by Bryan Proteau of Natvres Mortes Illustration. This pressing is limited to 500 copies and each one includes a sticker.
