Swedish Death Metal trio FURNACE, in collaboration with Decibel, present the complete stream of upcoming album Dark Vistas!
Furnace - Dark Vistas (Album Premiere)
Dark Vistas will be released October 9 on Soulseller Records. Dark Vistas is conceptual death metal in a melodic, thrashing and gothic setting.
"Brooding melodeath with a Gothic flair that never dulls the album’s serrated riffs. Infected with Lovecraftian lore and cosmic horror."
"As a far-ranging concept album, Dark Vistas offers us the passenger seat on a descent into madness."
- Invisible Oranges
"Furnace brings a beloved, gothic melodeath sound with a Lovecraftian edge. An album tinged with as much earnest musical delivery as it is with forward-thinking conceptual storytelling."
- Monsters, Madness and Magic
"Great stuff, and immediately very addictive."
- No Clean Singing
"An album that grabs you by the hand and drags you into a horrifying world. One filled with darkness, unnatural things and grotesque sounds."
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
"A searing death metal album. Full of dark mythos and lovecraftian horror."
- Breaking Necks
"If you like death metal that could easily have been featured in an 80s horror movie, get out your dark Visa and plunk down some cash on Dark Vistas."
- Toilet ov Hell
"Don’t be fooled by the rather old-school Death Metal cover artwork, because FURNACE hide quite a lot under the hood, and I will underline the killer riff collection as one of these goodies."
- Metal Kaoz
What if Paradise Lost, Deceased and any Swedish death metal band of choice came together for a full-on storytelling album? Well then you´d have FURNACE´s Dark Vistas. Comprised of members from Paganizer, Demiurg and Assassins Blade, as well as Cult of the Fox and Void Moon, this Swedish outfit explores a new melodic death metal vista of sorts. It’s still death metal, but it’s also much more. Delve deep into the Lovecraftian and cult-riddled mythos of FURNACE with Dark Vistas.
