Ossein Offers Double Album For Free Download

Experimental black metal and acoustic act Ossein is offering the double album 'Fuhrer' as a free download at the band's official MySpace Page. The band issued the following statement about the album:

"I'd just like to thank everyone who's taken the time to download our recently released Double LP 'FÜHRER.' It's come close (to our count) 500 downloads so far, without any real promotion, so I'm feeling pretty gratified with the interest.

"FÜHRER is a record about the God in Man, oppressed by Men playing God. Our brains react differently when exposed to various sound frequencies, which alter our mood, opinions, and consciousness. While some tracks on this recording are accessible & song based, many are heavily instrumental and may require patience for some listeners. Our goal is to inflict a variety of emotions, ideas, periods of self-reflection, and ultimately altered states in our listeners.

"While some tracks are abrasive and dark, others offer more soothing soundscapes. While tracks like 'Maize In Afternoon Light' paint a picture of divinity after death, others like 'Once Metropolis' expose an uneasy view of future civilization and isolation in physical planes. Some show a more human approach, stripped down to acoustic instruments and voice, telling stories of failed leadership, philosophy, and the search for divinity. As a recording, we draw influence from Johnny Cash and Joanna Newsom, to Merzbow and Coil alike. We're hoping to expand the business a little with this one, we've got a PR agency and we're ready to start pushing."
