Life is misery, and suffering, and sadness. To give yourself to the darkness and to your weariness, to accept universal dread, is to find solace. Fórn is the sonic manifestation of this dread. From its beginnings in 2013, the shadow of this Boston-based doom quintet has grown long and menacing.
Now Fórn returns with a new 12” EP, Weltschmerz, which from German translates to a feeling of world-weariness. Contained within are two new compositions, “Saudade" and “Dolor,” each presented in two movements with a total run time of twenty-three minutes. This is the first new material from Fórn since its debut LP, The Departure of Consciousness, released on LP in 2014 by Vendetta Records and on CD in 2015 by Gilead Media.
The suffocating darkness is far more evident within these new songs as Fórn channels its will to create cavernous wells of sludging doom atmosphere. Each passage intermingled with merciful moments of melody and beauty. These sounds seem to spring from the depths of the human mind, born from a place of grime and filth where no light can go.
Weltschmerz is presented in a reverse stock jacket with stunning artwork by Bryan Proteau, which perfectly represents the nature of the compositions. A download code will be included with the vinyl.
