Foscor – “Ciutat Tràgica” (Song Premiere)


Are you feeling moody? If so, good; if not, get ready. Those who dig the obtuse soundscapes of Oranssi Pazuzu and the mystical flavorings of Lotus Thief will appreciate the proggy, avant-garde disembodiment of Foscor. All these bands specialize in mood, atmosphere, and occasional forays into black metal. Stream “Ciutat Tràgica”, the first single from Foscor’s upcoming LP Les Irreals Visions, below.

Clean-sung vocals dominate “Ciutat Tràgica”, offering trance-like feels, followed by balladic guitar passages and build-up drum licks. There’s a patient yet determined energy to it all. The track also offers a blastbeat denouement, but doesn’t stop there, opting for a gentle piano outro. A defining question remains: will the rest of the album be heavier, more jammable? Or will we see more of the soft, misty headspace created by this track? Either way, this will be a promising release.

Regarding the new track, Foscor comment: “Our premiere song “Ciutat Tràgica” translates as ‘tragic city’ and it was admittedly also our first choice for the new album’s opening track and title. It perfectly describes the emotional dimension of the nature of our music. Reminiscent of the 80’s monochrome landscapes that we all have in mind, “Ciutat Tràgica” offers the same intensity and vitality, which has always characterized us and that people hopefully find thoughout this whole album. To work only with clean vocals and adding Catalan lyrics clearly mark a changing point for us. Last but not least, having Irish gentleman Alan A. Nemtheanga from PRIMORDIAL performing vocals on this song makes it an even more special moment.”

Regarding the concepts behind their new album, Foscor continues,

“In terms of lyrics, this record maps the collective interactions, weaknesses, and individual hopes of human beings in a city as a metaphor – amplifying the myths that we face. Life as such is represented by a maze of places, paths, wefts, and bounds that make us into who we are. After receiving the translation into photography, which Dutch artist Nona Limmen developed around our concept, for the album artwork, and its cover, we realized the bigger scale and wider connection that everything had with the Modernist Art period. Isolating the experience of hallucination to treat the ventures and misfortunes of the human being in a changing and distressed society, this magical place becomes a dreamlike landscape of extremes where we locate the scene and its reality.”

Les Irreals Visions launches June 9 via Season of Mist. Pre order it here. Follow Foscor on Facebook.
