Hornwood Fell - Cursed Thoughts

Owners of a distinctive sound that draws influences from avantgarde metal and other different spectrums, Italy's Hornwood Fell embarks on their new album "Cursed Thoughts" sheering away from the more conventional aspects of metal in favor of a memorable and intensified sound, displaying a dissonant and consuming feel, and becoming more surprising, unpredictable and varied than ever.

Set to be released on June 26th 2020 via Kadabra Music, "Cursed Thoughts" is a concept album divided into two parts, with Hornwood Fell exploring "Les Fleurs Du Mal" by Charles Baudelaire (tracks 1-6) and poems from Edgar Allan Poe (tracks 7-13).

The band comments on the chosen concept: «We were inspired by two great poets who speak of human despair. Inner monsters and ghosts, horror and pain. Two authors with different voices, with whom we have imagined and played with, and made different musical lines with the intent of evoking human and earthly energies.»

NoCleanSinging on the single "The Giantess": «Driven by the rumble and crack of the drums, and accented by the alluring, otherworldly sheen of briefly appearing keyboards, the song generates a feeling of tension and bleakness through a penetrating riff that chills the bones. As the drumming begins to blast and the riffing becomes a fever, livid death growls begin to voice the poetry. Enlivened by extravagant drum fills, the music seems to flare into the sounds of unbound madness, and then transforms into a frightening calamity through monumental, crushing blows, fanfare-like chords, and the skittering strings of fear.»
"Cursed Thoughts" was originally released in digital format by the band as a double album, and is now being brought in a 4-Panel Digipak edition through Kadabra Music on June 26th 2020. Artwork was created by Matteo Valentini.
