Formed anno 1994, German black metal act DARK FORTRESS have established themselves in the top ranks of the genre with fascinating full-length masterpieces that meet the standard
created mostly in northern Europe’s prolific scenes with ease. For the past two decades, DARK FORTRESS have gone from strength to strength. Across seven full-lengths, the
Landshut-based sextet stretched the boundaries of black metal, while remaining pure to the tenets of a genre that pivoted (and continues to do so) solely around the axis of the dark and all that resides hideously inside of it.
But right now, in 2017, it is time to look back at the very beginnings of this ambitious group by releasing restored and remastered recordings.
A visual revelation during the creation of these reissues occured when approaching the cover artwork of both albums. Painted by Kris Verwimp (Absu, Enthroned, Marduk…) and
completely newly scanned in late 2016 for these reissues, label and band were quite surprised realizing the colouring of the original CD pressings was far from the actual art.
With these reissues, fans can finally see all details of such beautiful paintings in their original colours! Furthermore, DARK FORTRESS reveal more about the creation of their earliest recordings in the liner notes completing these releases. So, look forward to re-visit and reexperience milestones of DARK FORTRESS’ history.
