A Forest Of Stars - Beware The Sword You Cannot See (2015)

Band: A Forest Of Stars
Album title: Beware The Sword You Cannot See
Release date: 27 February 2015
Label: Prophecy Productions

Beware The Sword You Cannot See is A Forest Of Stars by all means, but beside being just a logical continuation of 2012's A Shadowplay For Yesterdays it offers much more. It's a bolder album judging by compositions, but it's absolutely more adventurous, more accessible, it's much more melodic and I dare to say even catchier. The ambiances they create are at least to say beautifully unendurable, so vivid, dangerously psychotic, but often so picturesque that it's just a matter of minutes or seconds when you'll find yourself with closed eyes absorbing everything A Forest Of Stars has to offer.  A very specific structural ability of being able to re-create itself from the ashes of burned down theatre of insane existence and rising up again in full splendour and glory was always one of those surpluses that this band took advantage of while mixing up a vast repertoire of many different genres into one well structured and flowing integrity.
