BIOS


MORK channel the spirit of the forest and old school Norwegian Black Metal through their raw production and ice cold riffs. A project by Thomas Eriksen since 2004, this year has seen them develop into a fully fledged band who have been earning great live reviews. Their third album ‘Eremitten’s Dal’ (Valley of the Hermit) is to be released by Peaceville on October 13th and features guest appearance by members of Dimmu Borgir and 1349. Mork are named after the Norwegian word for the decaying debris on the forest floor. www.morkisebakke.no


THE INFERNAL SEA hail from the flat and foggy Fens of Eastern England. Their style is rooted in traditional Black Metal sounds although they are by no means afraid to experiment and push the boundaries of the genre. The band’s intense live performances have carved them into something unique and terrifying, mirroring the horror of their latest album 'The Great Mortality’, which chronicles the black death that swept across Europe from 1348. https://theinfernalsea.bandcamp.com


ASHTORETH is a one-man shamanic ritual that explores the nature of the human mind through layered meditative drones, cathartic noise doom, and experimentation. Prepare to be taken on a journey through dense forests and sacred spaces through this musical seance. https://soundcloud.com/ashtoreth


BECOMING THE FOREST is a publication edited by Una Hamilton Helle and Lotte Brown which looks at the relationship we have to our surroundings, with a specific focus on the Northern hemisphere’s abundance of dense spruce forests, and how the aesthetics and philosophy of the musical subculture of black metal has become entangled with this topography. Contributions to the book include essays about folklore, the national romantic painter Theodor Kittelsen, biological memory in spruce trees and interviews with bands such as Mork, Occvlta, Fen, Ashtoreth & Hexvessel. www.facebook.com/BecomingtheForest


FLORA PARROTT is an artist currently researching caves and caving in the Geography Department at Royal Holloway University.

The material is a combination of archival material from the RGS-IBG collection and accounts from a fieldtrip with a group of 12 artists and geographers to explore a cave network.
