Launched in 2007 by the colorfully named Mister Curse (vocals), Katheryne, Queen of the Ghosts (aka Kati Stone of My Dying Bride
-- violin, flute, vocals), the Gentleman (synths, pianoforte, drums), and Mr. T.S. Kettleburner (guitar, bass, vocals), A Forest of Stars made their recording debut with 2008's limited-edition (just 1,000 initial copies) The Corpse of Rebirth album, later reissued in larger quantities by the Transcendental Creations label. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
