The Corpse Of Rebirth

A Forest Of Stars is a rather cereberal black metal band from the UK who incorporate elements of post-rock, neo-classical, and psychedelia into their grimness. The strange monikers of Mister Curse, Queen of Ghosts,The Gentleman, and Kettleburner further distance the band from the pack, and suggest a sort of stylistic afinity for the grandiose and surreal. The songs are beautiful massive landscapes of guitar, drums, male and female vocals, piano, and violin.

The vocoded vocals on "Male" might be the single most amazingly unexpected thing I've ever experienced. Incredible!

This is stunning. It's insane that there's only 100 copies of the CD. Thank you!

I seriously, cannot, not listen to this when I'm stoned. Which has been almost everyday, for the past month. I'd probably stop and question the path my life has taken, but I can't. Why? Because I am listening so intently to every nuance on The Corpse of Rebirth. Thank you Aesop.
