Harrow (ex-Wraith) - "Forest Altar" (2011)

HARROW "Forest Altar"

Year: 2011
Genre: Cascadian BM
Country: Canada

Track List:
  1. Balance
  2. Wraith
  3. Watcher

I hope you remember a demo called "Unending Lands" by Wraith, which I've posted here year ago. Now they're a full band and no longer a one man project, and they changed the name to "Harrow," though the band is a continuation of the themes and music from those Wraith demos. Their music is still very decent atmospheric BM, though the vocals aren't quite "black metal"-ish. And some words directly from the band (about their concept):

"Harrow is the struggle for understanding of the self and of the Earth. It is coming to terms with accepting the truth of being human and then learning to live in our world with that knowledge. We exist in a time when two forces are beginning to clash and the outcome will determine the fate of all life. One side seeks harmony and understanding with the Earth and its habitants. The other seeks dominance and gain for itself. “Forest Altar” sets out this opposition as a foundation to build upon. At this point, we walk through an obscuring fog, only seeing small parts of a larger whole. When the fog clears, the truth has been reached"
