Catalan atmospheric metal band FOSCOR have never shied away from exploring the lines between reality, poetry and the beyond. With 'Les Irreals Versions', the band seeks to intensify their music and give new meaning to it. .
Departing from their black metal roots of the first three records and building on the progressive foundations of 'Those Horrors Wither' (2014), the Catalans found a way to express darkness by using doom infused tempo’s, heavy riffing and adding clean vocals on 'Les Irreals Visions' ( SEASON OF MIST 2017).
The name FOSCOR translates as "darkness" in their native Catalan tongue, which the band from Barcelona often uses for their lyrics as a distinctive element and strong connection with their cultural reality. FOSCOR hail from Catalonia, which is still yet largely unwilling part of modern Spain. With Barcelona as its capital, this region has a long artistic tradition with the fin de siècle style of Modernisme - a parallel development to Art Nouveau and Jugendstil among others - forming one of its major achievements. Catalonia has also left an audible mark in the extreme music scene of Spain in recent years.
FOSCOR are attracted to and build upon these foundations, while taking inspiration from the morbid, decadent, and sick reflections on a rapidly changing society that shaped the artistic landscape at the end of the nineteenth century.
