For over a decade, Fen have steadily developed into one of the most intriguing bands within the UK black metal scene. Often bracketed in with the post black metal or shoegaze black metal movements, Fen s sound is actually unique to themselves a startling fusion of searing, aggressive extremity, progressive daring and glacial, ambient beauty. Starting out with a pastoral form of atmospheric black metal on their acclaimed The Malediction Fields debut from 2009, across five full-length albums Fen s sound has expanded and diversified considerably to embrace a number of different elements all honed and synthesised into a distinctive, captivating soundscape. This culminated in the colossal Winter album which was released in 2017. In late 2015, the band recorded a three-track EP entitled Stone and Sea which was a deliberate hearken back to their older sound whilst still retaining the maturity the band had developed across the years.
