Forgotten Horror - Aeon of the Shadow Goddess



FORGOTTEN HORROR, a black / death metal act from Kuopio, Finland, was formed in January 2004 by Tuomas Karhunen (Deathchain, Jess and the Ancient Ones, True Black Dawn). The debut album "THE SERPENT CREATION" was released by WOODCUT RECORDS in September 2011, receiving a good response from the media (4/5 Terrorizer etc.).
In the spring of 2015 Forgotten Horror is ready to unleash their sophomore Lilithian summoning through Woodcut Records. The new full-length album is entitled "AEON OF THE SHADOW GODDESS" and it will be released on Walpurgis Night MMXV, followed by an album release gig in Kuopio with the Finnish cult band Demilich.
"Aeon of the Shadow Goddess" shows the band's evolved, unique style and diverse songwriting, being a leap forward on the acausal path of Lilithian Black Metal!

The band's frontman Tuomas Karhunen speaks:
"Making this Babalon's Beast of an album has been an extremely long process during which the material has matured a lot. As Forgotten Horror walks hand in hand with my own personal and spiritual growth, this dark alchemical process has required me to turn my life completely upside down, to step back and re-evaluate everything regarding music and my personal life. When it comes to songwriting, there are a lot of new elements and layers and everything is more dynamic than before.
With "Aeon of the Shadow Goddess" I set out to create an album that I could stand behind wholeheartedly; an album I gave my absolute everything for, and in that I have succeeded. I've poured my heart soul into this work of devotion towards the Queen of Souls, the beauteous Daughter of Sunset. The only currently available new track, the advance version of BEHOLD A SHADOW GODDESS is a good introduction for things to come and establishes the atmosphere nicely, but it doesn't do just to the album in its entirety. We'll put another song or two available soon so you can get an idea of this full-length's diversity.
After a hiatus we're also returning to the gig front with some fresh blood in our ranks. We'll start the conquering of stages with an album release gig at Henry's Pub, Kuopio (Finland) in May 2, 2015 together with the mighty cult of DEMILICH.
