Following up the success of the debut EP ”Arcane Secrets” (2010), Swedish black metal band Astrophobos are now releasing their first full length album.
”Remnants of Forgotten Horrors” offers 45 minutes of classic Scandinavian black/death metal with haunting melodies that will bring back memories from the nineties.
Formed in Stockholm in 2009 by Micke Broman (vocals, bass), Martin Andersson (guitars) and Jonas Ehlin (guitars), the band quickly made a name for themselves attracting attention from both the underground as well as the metal press.
Recorded and mixed in Garaget Studio by Erik Nilsson (Aoria, A Swarm of the Sun) and featuring session drummer Fredrik Widigs (The Ugly), the final result is both uncompromising and inspired, calling on bands like Naglfar, Satyricon and Dissection, but adding something distinctly unique to the mix.
"Remnants of Forgotten Horrors" is released January 2014 by Triumvirate Records.
