On the topic of avoiding the limits associated with being pigeon-holed into a subgenre, guitarist Edd Kerton comments, “I want to walk the line between what people expect from a metal band and more avant-garde aspects of music that I love. I think art is more exciting and creates more of a connection when it’s open for interpretation.”
Having set the tone with the release of their debut double single ‘Erased / Emotionless’ in February, Forlorn went on to sign to label Silent Cult (Palm Reader, Vexes, Funeral Shakes) before releasing new single 'Forsaken'. Out May 29th, ‘Forsaken’ is a track that embodies the concept of abandonment. Lyrically, it centres upon feeling shunned and left in the dark by those around us and that’s largely conveyed in the form of a monologue in the chorus. Within the riffs and instrumentation, the band bring about this feeling of claustrophobia and feeling trapped within yourself. Encompassing elements from various Metal subgenres, ‘Forsaken’ takes many twists and turns along its path before it comes to a ferocious close.
Forlorn now look towards the release of more material, with plans to take their unrelenting energy to the stage as soon as current circumstances allow.
