FUATH ready to release debut album

FUATH - I

Scottish atmospheric black metal band Fuath, a new project created by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Marshall (better known as the mastermind behind Celtic black metal act Saor) will release its debut album “I” on February 1st 2016 via Neuropa Records. Unlike Saor, which finds Marshall focusing mostly on a folky and epic black-metal, here the musician delves into a darker and more melancholic side of black metal, marrying fierce and harsh riffs, unrelenting double-kick drums and raspy screams with melancholic melodies and hypnotic, gloomy ambiences. “I” is wonderfully diverse in structure, featuring various tempos and superb ambiences that shift between intense, grim moments and more thoughtful, melancholic passages. “I am a massive fan of hypnotic atmospheric black metal, especially early 90′s stuff like Burzum’s “Hvis lyset tar oss”, early Darkthrone and also modern bands such as Paysage d’Hiver and Vemod” explains Marshall about the musical influences behind Fuath. “I wanted to create a cold, hypnotic and melancholic black metal album which tried to capture the feelings I felt listening to these bands. I always come back to these bands when winter comes along and I feel their sounds are perfect for this time of year, almost kind of spiritual in a way”. Mixed and mastered by Spenser Morris, “I” will be released on February 1st 2016 on digisleeve CD edition via Neuropa Records. You can pre-order it following the links below. An LP edition has been planned as well and will be announced at a later date.
