Staff review by

A Forest Of Stars is not your average run-of-the-mill Black metal band. Coming from the UK, they have that typical British attitude with them of class, high-tea, bowler hats and walking-canes. Ok, that's probably stereotyping and generalizing too much, but if I'd have to give it a place in history I'd place it in the nineteenth century, in a scene similar to that described in for example "The Picture Of Dorian Gray", by Oscar Wilde. Take that and morph it into Black metal and you'll probably get A Forest Of Stars.

Rating: 7 This was sitting in my library since I became acquainted with the band through A Shadowplay For Yesterdays nearly a year ago - finally decided to give it a spin. I'm really impressed by the haunting air they've crafted by combining raw black metal tones with unconventional psychedelic twists.

Unfortunately, tracks 1, 2, and the first half of 4 were far more engaging than the rest, which proved slightly drawn or stretched. Interested to see how the next release sounds.

  God. First song on their first album and probably the best song they'll ever write/have written.
