English Post Black Metal band FEN will make its second album, “Epoch”, available on February 11th, 2011 through code666 records. The cover artwork for the album was created by the band and can be viewed HERE . formed in 2006, the primary goal with Fen is to draw the listener into a windswept and desolate landscape, bereft of hope. The band was born when Grungyn, Theutus and The Watcher came together to create a project that fused the cold rage of black metal with more reflective influences from the post-rock/shoegaze genres. Initially intended as a studio project, in late 2006 they recorded the three songs that would end up as the ‘Ancient Sorrow’ EP, released in 2007. The band swiftly caught the attention of Code666 Records who signed the band for the release of their debut album, ‘The Malediction Fields’ which was released in January 2009. Reactions to the album have been almost overwhelmingly positive with Archaic Magazine declaring ‘if this band can keep up this sort of quality then I feel that we have a UK rival to the throne bands like Enslaved and Primordial have occupied for so long’ . Early 2010 saw Æðelwalh replace Draugluin on keyboards & backing vocals. Armed with this latest line-up, the band embarked on a well-received tour in support of Negura Bunget in the Spring of 2010 before commencing the recording of their second album ‘Epoch’, A darker, more involved expression than the previous record.

I felt this album needed different textures and we wanted to avoid working with prefrabricated sounds. The Goal is to mix Anatolian Music with modern extreme metal and these instruments add an eerie and somewhat mystic touch to our material. The production is absolutely incredible and i can’t wait to see the album in stores!”
