Ben B This took a few listens to really appreciate. Would suggest listening to it with headphones to really get swept away in the experience. Favorite track: If the Sky Falls, We Shall Catch Larks.

𝕺𝖛 𝕾𝖔𝖗𝖗𝖔𝖜 A unique album with great songwriting qualities. The epic opener starts quiet & folky, goes into partly spherical low tempo parts a la The Gathering before with the tempo change a dark rocky black metal a la Nocte Obducta is played. Followed by a doom-heavy track & a closing atmospheric post-rock track. This is a very exclusive mix, which stands out especially because of its varied, well thought out composition, as well as perfectly into the song structure integrated drums. Favorite track: Fragments of a Fallen Star.

Metallurgical Fire This album is truly a great example of why we need small independent labels, Bandcamp, and other vehicles to thwart the corporate music machine. This is a fantastic example of blackened folk, with an amazing doom song thrown in. Honestly this is a masterpiece of musicianship and atmosphere, an amazing album. Favorite track: Keening.

. A Dream – instrumental ii. Awakening There’s fire in the sky As the stars are spiraling by A light from forest floor It calls, To the sorceress’ wooden halls In her hair dances the flame In her eyes I see great pain Draws me forward to a pool Gaze in deep and see the truth Know the truth A beast arose deep in the past To strangle all life to the last I did not know what all this meant I did not know where I was sent Why sent? iii. The Vision Serpent rises from the waves In its wake the earth is a graveyard DNA locked away for 10,000 years re awakens Regressing To the archaic Ontogenesis Of a new world We are fragments of a fallen star iv. A Call Across Time Heed The Call Heed The call Across Time
Keening 07:21
Lightgiver on the horizon Baldr on his knees I seek the darkness, do not seek the light I do not seek the light I do not seek your light We seek the sky blackened by clouds of storm We seek the drums that pound with the march of war Atavistic reclamation is at hand
Lords of winter Hear my call Lend me cold on this day Cold Lithic Lords of springtime Hear my cry Tell me why the enemy Wishes all life to die If my life should end today By the sword or in the fray In archaic dance of death With a rope around my neck I’ll return from whence I came Lords of Summer Give me storms Pound your drums on this day We march to war Lords of Autumn Your leaves do fall In the month of October You will hear my call Hear the call


Crafting a cathartic experience through introspective yet raw music, “Fragments of a Fallen Star” explores space by combining psychedelic drone, acoustic passages, and energetic atmospheric black metal to form what Daniel Vanderberg of Cult Nation called:” "the aural equivalent of a DMT trip, rocketing from the moons of Jupiter through a dimensional portal to frosty northern forests, pagan rituals and medieval battlegrounds.” A genuine spirit can be heard all throughout “Fragments…” an album of visceral energy and ritualistic capacity, an album rooted in claustrophobic and raw, yet atmospheric and infectious black metal, interlaced with haunting synth, and transcendent folk melodies.

“Fragments of a Fallen Star”, is at times sombre, othertimes haunting, sometimes spiritual, and still at other points abbrasive. It succeeds because it is able to paint a picture through patient and purposeful songwriting, revealing crescendos and cathartic peaks throughout. This album was originally self-released on cassette by Harrow in the summer of 2013. Now, more than three years later this underrated Blackened Folk album will be released in a digipack CD by Hypnotic Dirge Records on November 8. Fans and listeners of Alda, Skagos, Falls of Rauros, Obsidian Tongue, Blood of the Black Owl, Panopticon, Agalloch, Wolves In The Throne Room will appreciate Harrow!
