North American instrumental black metal one woman project Crown of Asteria will release its debut full-length album “North” via the French label Le Crepuscule du Soir. Crown of Asteria were formed in May 2011 by their sole member Meghan Wood from Bancroft and released 2 demos and a split, all in 2013. Her music has a really beautiful atmosphere with ambient and folk passages. “North” is a transcendent and majestic instrumental work, paying homage to one’s homeland, a journey seeking the visceral and intrinsic connections and emotions found in nature. The album is already available for streaming on Crown of Asteria’s Bandcamp page and it will soon be released in a limited to 200 copies digipak edition on recycled paper.
