Chris P. - Vocals

I am going to let this great band tell you all about themselves as you need to check these excellent Sludge/Doom Metal Band now!!!

We are currently the only active doom/sludge band in Boston that I know of that play the style we play. Think Burning Witch, Asunder or Moss, etc. Played our first show with Floor & Thrones back in March and have since played with bands such as The Body, Sea of Bones, Order of the Owl, Sannhet, Rozamov, SET, Finisher and many others. 

Going on our first east coast tour this coming July from the 18th - 28th with Finisher. 

Our upcoming EP that was record at Labyrinth Audio in MA and mixed/mastered by Greg Wilkinson of Earhammer Studios in Oakland, CA. The cover artwork was done by Bryan Proteau of Clovenhoov/Natvres Mortes Illvstration. 

We have a schedule release date of early July as of right now for the self titled EP. With more information forthcoming very soon on how to order/what not.

Also a link to an article in the Boston based paper the Dig about our first show with Floor/Thrones can be found here:

Well the guys have let me listened to their forthcoming debut S/T EP -And it's a work of insane twisted genius. 2 tracks running for about 14 mins altogether. You can hear the first track - Coiled, Alone on BandCamp now. It's a track full of eerie atmospherics with creepy based Doom/Sludge Metal riffs.

But it's the epic 9:23 minute track - Dasein - where the band come into their own. This track has a life of it's own. Dark, Brutal and uncompromising as well. It's a track which really shows what Fórn can really do. Brutal riffs which could hypnotise an entire audience to do whatever the band tells them to do.

Fórn do mix things a bit by throwing in faster paced riffs amongst the slower drone based riffs and it's a perfect match made from the depths of hell itself.

All in all this debut EP does what it needs to do. Showcasing a great band to look out for in the future. If you get the chance to see them on their forthcoming tour then you could be in for something special indeed.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
