about

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!

Track Name: Fragments of a Fallen Star
. 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
Track Name: Keening
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
Track Name: Song of Seasons
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
