For some acts in the overarching genre of doom metal, there is a specificity that is required. From funeral doom’s sparse grandeur to the violent filth of sludge, there is often a sort of orthodoxy and limitation within each subset of the musical poor.
For a band like Massachusetts doomsters Fórn, however, doom metal is a smorgasbord of sound from which a group can and should borrow liberally. With soul-crushing lows and groovy assaults at higher moments, there’s hardly any territory left unexplored and bodies that aren’t sore after a Fórn performance.
With a high impact and unearthly quality to their presence onstage, the band is sure to deliver one of the most brutally direct sets of Roadburn 2017. Whether it’s the sludgy punch of Black Lives Matter benefit song ‘Ambitions Towards Nothingness’ or the two-part glory of ‘Saudade’ from their Weltschmertz EP, Fórn is set to deliver a set that will captivate fans of all things slow and heavy.
Fórn will leave rubble in their wake at the 013 venue on Thursday, 20 April as part of Roadburn 2017 in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!
