Fallen Forest Demo II album cover.jpgThe Finnish duo named Fallen Forest, which is inspired by ancient nature and life, released their first limited-edition demo tape via the Lost Armor label not that many months ago, but it did not quite manage to capture my imagination or pique my interest that much.
However, this latest endeavor of theirs is much better not to mention more focused and memorable compared to its predecessor. Simply titled “Demo II”, this is a truly grim and ugly affair, but there is an inherent beauty and evocative quality to it too due to its linear and sad melodies as well as its overall morose aura.

This 4-track output is a caustic one and it reminds me ever so slightly of Darkthrone’s “Transilvanian Hunger” and early Taake but with the dungeon synth influences added for good measure. I dig the subtle folk-like vibe that runs underneath the song material and “Demo II” is nothing if not rich in atmosphere. For those of you who are into unpolished and inhumanly raw music steeped in lo-fi aesthetics, check this one out via Bandcamp.
