Fórn "The Departure Of Consciousness"

Estimated Shipping Widget will be displayed here! (with custom color)

A special, ten-year anniversary reissue of “The Departure of Consciousness”, the debut LP from funeral sludge ensemble, FÓRN. Formed in 2012 during a particularly dismal and harsh Boston winter, FÓRN draws inspiration from their predecessors, Grief, Burning Witch and Noothgrush, while remaining true to their natural progression. The suffocating darkness and soul crushing heaviness of their debut is starkly evident as FÓRN channels its will to create their unique brand of cerebral funeral sludge.

Their 2014 debut, “The Departure of Consciousness”, originally released via Vendetta Records and Gilead Media, took the doom and sludge world by surprise. It garnered instant critical acclaim, bringing them to prestigious festivals, stages, tours, and even a memorable performance in a seaside cave. Released to coincide with their return to live performances, this reissue comes ahead of a brand new album due out in September 2024.

Recorded in Spring 2014 by Alec Rodriguez at New Alliance Studio and Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studio. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The 12” vinyl release includes a stark reverse board jacket and inner sleeve and two limited color variants.

01. Emergence

03. Gates of the Astral Plane
04. Alexithymia
05. Suffering in the Eternal Void
