August 12 street date. "Umbras e Forestas is the best of two distinct worlds. If you like your black metal raw, underpro-duced, its potential only grasped by those conscripted to the BM army, you have that. Their screams avoid the usual, meek throating you typically find for more of a rotting sound, but the real moments of captivation are how they balance that with ambiance and folk, transporting the listener into a culture perceived across centuries, real because of the hands that fashioned the lens. The empty spaces of storms and archaic folk take this to where all black metal should go."
