The Answer Lies In The Black Void announce debut record, Forlorn, out on September 24th via Burning Wold Records
The Answer Lies In The Black Void is a new collaboration between Martina Horváth, singer for the avant-garde metal project Thy Catafalque, and Jason Köhnen, the mastermind behind Bong-Ra and also a former member and founder of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, born out of both artists’ shared passion for doom. Their debut record, Forlorn, is an enveloping exploration of the doom genre and the myriad means of expression within it – journeying from a classic old-school sound to something more contemporary, then expanding further into sludge and industrial terrain, while also incorporating elements of Martina’s background in Hungarian folk music. The Answer Lies In The Black Void seek to embrace beauty in darkness and fragility in heaviness and, in their own words, “Forlorn explores the sacred union of the divine feminine and masculine, the light and the dark, the shadows that hide within and the trials of love, lust and loss. Below this article you can check the first single of Forlorn, entitled “Become Undone”.
Forlon will be released on September 24th via Burning World Records. Digital and physical pre-orders can be found here.
