Another new DARK FORTRESS song entitled "No Longer Human" has been posted on the MySpace page of the group's drummer, Seraph. The track "Edge of Night" is still available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. Both cuts come off the German black metal outfit's fifth full-length album, "Eidolon", which will be released via Century Media Records on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Italy: February 22
UK, France, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Rest Of Europe: February 25
Spain, Portugal: February 26
Finland, Sweden, Hungary: February 29

According to a press release, "Eidolon" is the band's first effort with new vocalist Morean, who is also responsible for the intricate lyrical concept.

In its nine chapters the album describes the initiation, dehumanization and unearthly rebirth of a transcending soul by mirror magic and astral projection.

An "Eidolon" is a Greek concept of an astral double of a living being or a "mirror." The concept describes a magic mirror ritual as while a person is in a trance, the surface of the mirror is used as a gate to enter a new dimension. Three songs each form the album's three chapters:

"Eidolon" track listing (50:17):

The first three songs describe the calling of beings from the other dimension, seen from three different angles:

01. The Silver Gate (6:50)
02. Cohorror (5:37)
03. Baphomet (6:24) *

The second part is the initiation, when the astral soul is dehumanized and torn away from his earthly ties.

04. The Unflesh (5:08)
05. Analepsy (6:01)
06. Edge of Night (3:57)

The third part is the rebirth „on the other side of the mirror“.

07. No Longer Human (5:36)
08. Catacrusis (4:34)
09. Antiversum (7:22)

* Featuring guest vocals by Tom Gabriel Fischer (CELTIC FROST)
