From Southern Lord Recordings:
On the 23rd of April, Southern Lord shall release the debut full-length album from The Lord (aka Greg Anderson of sunn O))), Goatsnake, Engine Kid and Southern Lord curator), »Forest Nocturne«, first as a special LP Record Store Day release!
»Forest Nocturne« sees Anderson taking cues from legendary film composers: John Carpenter and Bernard Hermann, in order to create cinematic landscapes which are heavy with tension, and offset by the injection of lethal doses of early 90s Scandinavian Death Metal – with very special guest Attila Csihar (of notorious Norwegian black metal band Mayhem and often times sunn O))) vocalist) lending his putrid vocals to this track »Triumph Of The Oak«.
For »Forest Nocturne«, Anderson worked with renowned producer Brad Wood. Dan Seagrave’s epic and fantastical style is instantly recognizable on the album’s stunning artwork, something which seems to depict an ancient and unknowable force in the woodlands. »Forest Nocturne« is described by Anderson as “the music of the night”, but inspired by imagery conjured on daytime hikes, and majestic and beautiful trees, which he sees as survivors – and perhaps the last known connection that we have to an ancient world, and acting as a connector between past, present and future of the human race and of our time on this planet.
