FEN: New Song Available For Streaming

"Consequence", a new song from progressive black metallers FEN, can be streamed using the SoundCloud player below. The track comes off the band's third album, "Dustwalker", which is scheduled for release on January 21 via Code666.

A three-piece whose lineup comprises The Watcher (guitars and vocals), Grungyn (bass and vocals) and Derwydd (drums), FEN's music fits into the black metal genre, but the exact categorization is hard to define, having been variously described as "progressive," "atmospheric," "post-rock" and "shoegaze." Drawing their name and inspiration from the desolate, windswept, other-worldly Fen region of the U.K. from whence founder members The Watcher and Grungyn hail, there is no doubt that the band's music fits into all the afore-mentioned categories, and more besides, to form a unique sound that is hauntingly and unmistakeably FEN. As The Watcher recently commented about the new album: "If 'Epoch' embodies a lonely walk into the deepening twilight of the fens in autumn, then 'Dustwalker' represents the cold, sharp greys of a bleak winter's dawn. An expression of isolation, abandonment and a gradual detachment from the material realm, this album is a starker, more direct representation of the FEN sound."

FEN have previously released two albums on Code666 — their debut full length album, "The Malediction Fields", in 2009 and the follow-up, "Epoch", in 2011, and the band recently announced that they had re-signed with the label for the release of a further three albums following the release of "Dustwalker".

"Dustwalker" will be available in both CD format, and as a limited edition Clambox which will feature a bonus track and include a pendant with the band's distinctive logo. Artwork for the album is by Grungyn.
