Fen set March release for fifth studio album, Winter, via Code666

Official press release:

Atmospheric black metallers Fen have announced details of their fifth full-length album, set to see release via Aural Music imprint Code666 on March 10th. Titled Winter, the six-track production was captured by Jaime Gomez Arellano at the Orgone Studios in London (Ulver, Altar Of Plagues, Grave Miasma, Primordial, Solstafir) and stands among the band’s most enticing piece of work yet for the English three-piece; rich in sound, beguilingly delicate, and shrouded in darkness.

Winter‘s six movements are thematically and compositionally linked flowing into each other seamlessly. Ideally, the whole record is intended to be listened to in one sitting to allow the full journey to be absorbed. Musically, the band have sought to push themselves further than ever before and Fen‘s trademark use of atmospheric black metal and spacious clean segments have been complimented by shades of ’70s progressive rock, shoegaze, and doom metal.

Winter, which comes sheathed in the cover art of Fen bassist/vocalist Grungyn, will be available in standard CD, double black vinyl limited to 300 copies, and digital formats in North America on March 10th followed by a European street date of March 17th. Additionally, Fen’s Winter will be available in a Special Collectors Box limited to 199 copies which will include the standard CD, an additional bonus CD, the DLP with Side A/Side B in a smashed splatter effect of transparent aquamarine and opaque cream, an exclusive T-shirt and poster, and a certificate of authenticity signed by the band.
