FORSTENET are four young men and their old Norwegian father, who have decided to form a rock band. A rock band that cherishes the free flow of creativity and experimentation. In other words: A rock band that plays whatever they want. This year, they have been working on their debut album, which is a double-LP concept album. A varied record that cultivates both the heavy and the soft in its soundscape. The record makes you think of artists such as Frank Zappa, Opeth, The Mars Volta, Porcupine Tree, Voivod and Steppeulvene. The record, which is in the band’s native language, Danish, is an hour-long conceptual journey through a unique mind, which undergoes stages of depression, isolation, madness, psychopathy and mania in an eager attempt to break out of the dystopian universe ”Ephemeros”. This psychedelic, progressive and experimental stew sui generis was released November 29, 2019.
With the debut album ‘’ Ephemeros: Virvar ‘’, Forstenet takes you on a ver-
satile musical journey that includes elements from danish 70s rock, metal and progressive/psychedelic music of all ages.
In a futuristic totalitarian universe, all human consciousness and emotional life is controlled and manipulated by the omnipresent ‘’force’’ Ephemeros. The life of a weakened mind takes a turn as he discovers the truth about his existence and solitarily tries to break free…
The listener is placed right in the heart of the album’s universe. The album’s concept story is greatly shaped by the listeners own understanding and perception. Put another way, the listener is largely his own protagonist to the story. Forstenet’s goal with the lyrical part of the album is to let the listener get into a state of self-reflection and existential contemplation.
Forstenet consists of four young men and their old Norwegian father who have decided to form a rock band. A rock band that cherishes the free flow of creativity and experimentation. A rock band that plays whatever they
want. A philosophy that is reflected throughout the record in terms of its storytelling structure and musical versatility.
