Starting in the beginning of the millennium with bona fide classics such as “Songs to Leave” (2002), “Springtime Depression” (2003) and “Love’s Burial Ground” (2004) – widely considered among the true originators of the so-called “Depressive Black Metal” sub-genre – the band explored increasingly heavier and broader territories with all the albums that followed, from the genre-shattering avant-garde of “Negative Megalomania” (2007) through the pitch-black rocking-vehicle “Under Saturn Retrograde” (2011), then perfecting the band’s own black/doom formula with the harsher tones of “…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil” (2012) and “Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love” (2015) followed by “We Owe You Nothing” (2017). In the meantime, they found the time to release a mid-career live in studio anniversary album (“Vol 5: 1999-2009”, 2010) and a live DVD (“Darkness In Stereo: Eine Symphonie Des Todes”, 2012).

Forgoten Tomb’s constant evolution makes it hard to narrow down its sound to some pre-existing labels. Effortlessly blending the eerie, dissonant black metal sound the band is well-known for muscular sludge/doom riffs and a subtle, nihilistic punk attitude, and a truly unique sound.

The performance at Cosmic Void Festival 2020 will mark the Italians’ return to London and the United Kingdom after 5 years for a UK exclusive show supporting their upcoming new album to be released during the year.
