Dark Forest - 'Under the Greenwood Tree' (audio)

Under the greenwood tree
We fight with an outlaw bold
Swore oaths which we will uphold
Forced to flee into the greenwood
Or by our necks we’ll swing
But we are free here under the greenwood
Now we live as kings
Hark now the hunting horn
Rings out through the forest glades
We poach on the royal game
Stand defiant against the tyrants
Who bleed the country dry
Feed the poor reward the deserving
Let the arrows fly!
Beneath the arcing boughs of green
A story is weaved
Come listen well this tale I tell
A legend woven through centuries gone
His tale lives on
Now raise a glass to heroes past!
Under the greenwood tree
We meet at the setting sun
With Robin the valiant one
Tales of brave deeds, men of honour
Who fought with sword and bow
Now let the fire dance to the music
Let the ale flow
Beneath the arcing boughs of green
A story is weaved
Come listen well this tale I tell
A legend woven through centuries gone
His tale lives on
Now raise a glass to heroes past!

Ep πέντε τραγουδιών είναι η μουσική πρόταση των Dark Forest για το 2022. Τιτλοφορείται "Ridge & Furrow" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του πρώτου φθινοπωρινού μήνα. Οι Dark Forest μας έρχονται από την Αγγλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από είκοσι χρόνια, χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους ως «Heavy Metal from the Wood» και έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (ακούστε τα albums "Oak, Ash & Thorn", "The Awakening"), ένα demo και τρία EPs...

Ο δίσκος των Dark Forest 'Ridge & Furrow'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Heralded British traditional metallers Dark Forest (UK) will release the five-song “Ridge & Furrow” EP this September via Cruz Del Sur Music.

The follow-up to 2020’s “Oak, Ash & Thorn” was recorded at Hellfire Studios in the Midlands of England with producer Ajeet Gill. Founding Dark Forest member, guitarist and primary songwriter Christian Horton used his pandemic downtime wisely.

The extra, unexpected free time allowed him to craft new Dark Forest material between full-length releases. Horton’s burst of creativity coincided with the eventual (and much-needed) re-opening of pubs across England that led to the band resuming live activity.

But the immediate future brings “Ridge & Furrow”, a project that has taken on special meaning for Horton that offers the perfect segue to the band’s next full-length album.

As I began to write new material during 2020, it occurred to me that if we could get enough songs to form an EP and have it recorded and released by 2022, it would be the perfect thing to mark the occasion of the band’s 20th anniversary,” says Horton.

This is one reason why the project began to take on a personal significance. As the founder of Dark Forest, it would serve as a milestone on the band’s journey and is why I decided to handle a lot of aspects of the record myself, including the artwork. The EP became a project that was close to my heart and I also wanted to bring back something of the early Dark Forest atmosphere, as I used to do the art back then too, to create a kind of symmetry between points in time.

The five songs contained herein are classic Dark Forest. Josh Winnard’s effortless vocal delivery rouses the band’s impenetrable wall of melody and might. The EP format also allowed Horton and the rest of Dark Forest (completed by guitarist Patrick Jenkins and drummer Adam Sidaway) to spread the creative wings a bit - and include a fan favorite from their past.»
