Decibel magazine is streaming the whole of “Those Horrors Wither”, the fourth full-length album from Dark Metallers FOSCOR, and it can be heard at this location.
“Those Horrors Wither” marks a change of direction for FOSCOR, who have moved away from the standard 90’s Black and Extreme Metal and created a style that is distinctly their own by mixing Doom and Dark Rock together, and adding progressive touches that not only give the band and their music a whole new identity, but also one that appeals across a number of genres. Whilst the album does have guest artists, FOSCOR have taken the unusual step of having their guests write and perform connecting passages between the tracks, rather than straightforward vocals or instrumental solos on the tracks themselves.
Track listing for “Those Horrors Wither” as follows:
01. Whirl Of Dread
05. Those Horrors Wither
06. Graceful Pandora
07. To Strangle A Ghost
