NSP 157 : Antigone's Fate - Insomnia CD
Release date: January 26th, 2018
FATE was founded in 2015 as a side-project by multi-instrumentalist
Ruun, when the newly written songs - all of which created during a
difficult phase of Ruun’s life – turned out to be too out-of-character
for his other bands.
Thus, while initially being created only for himself, a lot of the
ANTIGONE’S FATE material withered away on his hard disc without Ruun
considering an actual album release.
When, in 2017, he began writing new songs for one of his earlier bands,
it turned out that during this previous stage of personal development
he had actually moved too far away from the band in terms of subject
matter and style. The logical consequence of this process was to
reactivate ANTIGONE’S FATE – and not just in order to release the
already written material, but as a long-term outlet for his creativity.
Consequently, „Insomnia“ can be seen as a conceptual first sign in the
life of ANTIGONE’S FATE. Yet in spite of that, it remains only a
fragment of the whole which led to the project’s founding, and the
coming years hold the possibility of assembling previous chapters,
while also working on brand new material, and thus eventually closing
the circle of past and future.
ANTIGONE'S FATE is recommended for fans of Gallowbraid, Vallendusk, Agalloch, Nagelfar, Empyrium, Horn and similar bands.
The CD comes as Collector's Edition in Digipack (ltd. 300), as well as regular edition in jewel case.
