Today, Black Forest Metallers Finsterforst reveal the new track “Kapitel II: Dualität.” The track is the second excerpt from the band’s upcoming mini-album Jenseits, set for international release on September 8th via AOP Records. Hear Finsterforst‘s “Kapitel II: Dualität” in its entirety HERE at AOP Records‘ official YouTube channel.

Founded in 2004, Finsterforst have released five albums and two EPs thus far. Starting as a folk metal act with heavy usage of accordion, the German band have evolved their sound to an epic, cinematic mix of post-black metal, traditional black metal, and folk metal featuring an enormous range of different singing styles and always-heavy riffing. The quintet calls this sound Black Forest Metal, referencing their roots in the Black Forest region.

During the Covid pandemic, Finsterforst asked their fans to help fund a new mini-album with only one song clocking in at almost 40 minutes. The fans came to help, and Jenseits was born. Arguably the band’s boldest statement to date, Jenseits is definitely not made for streaming, but those who enter this ominous but soon-awe-inspiring forest of sound will be infinitely rewarded: their characteristic Black Forest Metal here unfolds with a mesmerizing majesty that takes many, MANY twists and turns, but always with superlative songwriting acumen. Although the mini-album is broken up into four parts, Jenseits is undeniably an immersive experience that requires attention to its totality, and the 3D production itself renders that experience incredibly cinematic – again, arguably the band’s most cinematic to date.

With JenseitsFinsterforst continue to go their own way of creating mind-bending art that will stand the test of time – and long may it continue!
