British atmospheric post-black metallers Fen have announced that work on what will be their fourth full-length album has begun and is progressing well. As things stand, the band anticipates that it will be ready for release towards October/November of this year. The as yet untitled album will be a follow up to 2013's Dustwalker, and will once again be released on Aural Music's Code666 label.

Fen's frontman Frank "The Watcher" Allain commented: "Our new work will be darker and more intense. Invoking a spectrum of atmospheres from the unknowable coldness of distant stars to the blood and earth that thrums beneath our feet. This record takes the approach we started on Dustwalker and builds on it further, whilst simultaneously acknowledging the more obscure-sounding roots of our debut. Bleaker, harder, yet at the same time more ambient, this record moves us further away from the accepted tropes of what post black metal should sound like in 2014."

Nope. The new work will be darker and more intense.

Give me a penny every time a metal band says that the new album will be darker...

Yeah, to be honest I would also be OK if Fen took a similar direction to Dustwalker. It was actually a lot better than I remembered when I went back to it a few weeks ago. It sounds like they are going to be influenced by their debut album as well from what I've read online, which wouldn't be a bad thing if they're looking to attract some members of their earlier fanbase.

Dustwalker was fine album i didn't say it was bad
But The Malediction Fields was a masterpiece and it will never happen again

Some parts of that album, especially the clean vocals, are embarrassing and truly horrid; the Walker's cleans improved dramatically in Epoch and again in Dustwalker. Fen definitely improved their songwriting with their last two albums, and the view that The Malediction Fields is a masterpiece is still a little surprising to me. I'm in the minority on that one, though. I would much rather prefer the Fen that's capable of tracks like Spectre, Hand of God, The Gibbet Elms and Of Wilderness and Ruin.

Me too. Dustwalker was far better than Epoch imo
But I thought it would be fun to make the joke anyway =P

It's going to be post-post-black metal.

I'd like pre post black metal.
