in 2002 as a traditional black metal act, the Italian band
LORN has forged a new and personal metal language,
better suited to the ambitious concept behind its
long-awaited sophomore album, "Subconscious Metamorphosis".
Conceived in austere solitude on
the Dolomites mountains, immersed
in a portentous amalgam of trance-inducing black metal and
menacing cosmic ambient, "Subconscious Metamorphosis" is a
long mental voyage through cold dark tunnels, a continuous
and violent hammering on the joints of reality, to unhinge
them and open new vistas on interior landscapes.
In its brave
rejection of the most obvious metal schemes and norms,
Lorn's music propitiates the definitive conjunction between
mind and spirit, microcosm and macrocosm, to win the fear of
unknown and be triumphantly reborn in the blinding
light of a new awareness.
