The End Records has set a release date of February 19th, 2008 for VIRGIN BLACK’s ‘Requiem - Fortissimo,’ the much-anticipated follow-up to 2007’s ‘Requiem - Mezzo Forte.’

The album’s cover art was created by esteemed fashion photographer Andrew Dunbar who’s work will be seen throughout the series

Says singer/keyboardist Rowan London about ‘Requiem - Fortissimo,’ “I should feel a sense of dread offering up something so atypical for us to be interrogated and scrutinized. But the fearlessness that we inhabited while writing Fortissimo and the Requiem series survives to see its unveiling. An album not so much about death as the absence of life; it’s damn heavy but its countenance is far more brutal than its sound could ever be. Long live the ‘death choir.’”

You can hear the track “Silent” by visiting The End Records‘ official MySpace page.

Says London about the song: “The track, ‘Silent,’ simultaneously represents both the divergences and links between Fortissimo and Mezzo Forte. I’m sure that it will surprise a few people.”
