Today, high traffic web portal BrooklynVegan hosts an exclusive premiere of “Beyond Embers and the Earth,” from post-black metal duo FALLOCH. The song comes off the band’s upcoming Where Distant Spirits Remain full-length debut, set for release via Candlelight Records on September 27.
Commented FALLOCH‘s Andy Marshall: “‘Beyond Embers…’ was a song we wrote after a trip to the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands last Winter. The majestic landscape was glowing with frost, it was amazing! We went walking through the mountains and forests in the deep snow and the atmosphere was incredible. The song is about how isolated I felt at the time with only the sound of the wind to keep us company. Being so far away from urban life/culture was such a liberating feeling.”
