FORGOTTEN LAND reveal new album details

FORGOTTEN LAND - Omnia Fert Aetas

Italian epic Viking black metallers Forgotten Land from Como have just released their second full-length album “Omnia Fert Aetas” in digital format in their official Bandcamp page. It will be also self-released in CD edition hopefully in November 2014. The band was formed in 2006 and released its debut album “In Regno Langobardorum” in 2009. In 2012 their founding member Nordic Valkyrja (guitars, cello, female vocals) left the band for personal reason, so there are now four members in the line-up. ”Omnia Fert Aetas” has two different concepts. The first five songs are about the band’s city and land, the other ones are about Viking history and mythology. The first part is sung in Italian and old Italian (Canturium). There is a song about Frederick Barbarossa and Lega Lombarda and the war between Comuni and Holy Roman Empire. “Canturium” is about old Cantù, the small country where the band was formed and played music for the last six years. “Isola Cumana“, “La Tana del Cunt Caru’” and “Ca’ di Piagh” talk about their land and its dark, old and mystery stories. The second part of the album is all about Viking mythology, except for “Anno Domini 774” that is about Longobardi / Longobards and the end of their reign in Italy. The songs are about Drakkar and their revenge against God and his servants, “Tyr” is like “Drakkar’s Return” but speaks about the one-hand god and his hopeless victory against Christianity and Bifrost. “On the Way of Valhalla” is about the end of all heroic warriors and their rest in the great hall of the fighter waiting the final battle against the evil.
