Forgotten Tomb Details New Album

"We Owe You Nothing", the ninth studio album from Italian black/doom metal overlords Forgotten Tomb, is set to be released on October 27th in Europe and November 10th in North America via Agonia Records. The album's title track & first single is available in the form of a lyric video, which you can enjoy at the bottom.

The album marks the highest point in the band's constant evolution and once more makes it hard to narrow down its sound to some pre-existing labels. Effortlessly blending the eerie, dissonant black metal sound the band is well-known for with muscular sludge/doom riffs and a subtle, nihilistic punk attitude, "We Owe You Nothing" defines the band's personality more than ever, reaffirming its unique sound.

Starting in the beginning of the millennium with bona fide classics such as "Songs to Leave" (2002), "Springtime Depression" (2003) and "Love's Burial Ground" (2004) - widely considered among the true originators of the so-called "Depressive Black Metal" sub-genre - the band explored increasingly heavier and broader territories with all the albums that followed, from the genre-shattering avant-garde of "Negative Megalomania" (2007) through the pitch-black rocking-vehicle "Under Saturn Retrograde" (2011), then perfecting the band's own black/doom formula with the harsher tones of "...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil" (2012) and "Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love" (2015).

The band commented: "Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. 'We Owe You Nothing' closes the third trilogy which started with '...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil' followed by 'Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love' and it's the heaviest among the 3 albums, with an emphasis on slower/mid tempos and a sludgier approach while retaining also our trademark melodies and dissonant arpeggios, plus some twists which open new doors to the next era of the band. Due to circumstances surrounding it, it's been an extremely painful album to make and therefore it's one of our darkest, while being also filled with raw energy".

Recording-sessions started in December 2016, with drums being tracked at Big Pine Creek studio in Italy, but were abruptly interrupted when singer/guitarist Ferdinando "HM" M. was involved in a life-threatening car accident that left him unable to play for months. The recording was resumed and completed in May 2017 at SPVN Studio in Italy, while mix and mastering were done in June 2017 at Planet-Z studio (Hadley, Massachussets, USA) by Chris "Zeuss" Harris (Rob Zombie, Six Feet Under, Crowbar, Hatebreed).

Forgotten Tomb Finishes New Album

Italian black/doom metal crew Forgotten Tomb has finished recording new album, "We Owe You Nothing." It will include 6 songs for approximately 40 minutes of music.

The album recording sessions started in December 2016 with drums being tracked at Big Pine Creek studio in Italy, but were abruptly interrupted when singer/guitarist Ferdinando "HM" M. was involved in a life-threatening car accident that left him unable to play for months.

Recording-sessions were resumed and completed in May 2017 at SPVN Studio in Italy, while mixing and mastering were done in June 2017 at Planet-Z studio (Hadley, Massachussets) by Chris "Zeuss" Harris The album is due in fall 2017 on Agonia Records.

In the words of the band, "The new album is another step into our constant evolution. Our trademark sound is still there but this record is heavier than anything we've done before. It's a varied one and it includes some new solutions that might catch some people off guard. It's a pissed-off record but also extremely gloomy". More...
