A FOREST OF STARS
The year is 1896. The members of the Gentleman's Club of A Forest Of Stars, an exclusive brotherhood of English Victorians, consider themselves to be exponents of their glorious and pompous, at times decadent era characterized by extreme opposites. A Forest Of Stars channel the experiences gained from their numerous meetings hazed by opium and absinthe, occult rites and seances in the form of a previously unheard-of ghostly and hypnotic music, filled with the spirit of the glorious Victorian Age - a harrowing testimony of their many spiritual and sensual excesses.
Necronaut (noun); derived from the Greek words nekros, meaning "corpse" or "dead", and nautes, meaning "explorer". The word refers to a person who experiments with near-death experiences in order to explore the underworld.
Necronautical recorded their latest offering, 'Apotheosis' in 2018, to be released by the world-renowned extreme metal label Candlelight Records in 2019. The album was recorded at Skyhammer Studio, UK, and was mixed & mastered by famed British Producer Chris Fielding (Conan, Winterfylleth). Adorned by the foreboding artwork of David Thiérrée (Behemoth, Gorgoroth), 'Apotheosis' serves as a sonic epitaph to the human experiences of hope and faith. It details a melancholic journey through an empty and brutal existence, taking inspiration from the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Chuck Palanuik and Neil Gaiman. 'Apotheosis' will be released worldwide on 30/08/2019.
