DARK FORTRESS Churns Out Blackened Riffs On New Song "The Spider In The Web"

Plus the visualizer does a great job capturing the gross feeling of the song.


Dark Fortress will release their first new album in six years Spectres from the Old World on February 28. You can check out their mid-paced crusher "The Spider in the Web" right now, which is just riffs on riffs forever and ever. Plus the visualizer does a great job capturing the gross feeling of the song!

"The inspiration for this lyric came from fairly recent images from a simulation of the distribution of galaxies and dark matter in the universe – a simulated ‘photo of the universe’, so to speak," said vocalist Morean of the track. "On these images, one can clearly see how all matter in the cosmos aligns itself in strands of truly astronomical proportions; the same entropic mechanisms that create clumps in your powdered mashed potatoes serve as architects on the grandest possible scale.

"Since this structure is contained within spacetime’s intangible fabric itself, the mind that reincarnated into it becomes the silent, hidden observer of its creation, watching a universe taking shape as a consequence of his seemingly insubstantial, microscopically wobbling oscillations. Thus, he contains the totality of everything within his bizarre 11-dimensional existence; he is ‘the spider in the web’ of everything."
