Last year, black metallers Dark Fortress started recording their new album. Now there is more news about the band's next opus. Their 7th studio album is coming on September 1st, 2014 in Europe and Australia/New Zealand and September 2nd, 2014 in North America through Century Media Records. The record will be titled Venereal Dawn and will be a concept album in nine chapters.

Press release: "Three years in the making, Venereal Dawn will take the band's traditionally rich musical spectrum further than ever. Always aiming for an innovative equilibrium between hellish black metal, sophisticated melancholy, atmospheres of metaphysical horror and a deep occult spirituality, the album will be a substantial offering to Dark Fortress' already extensive back catalogue. Dark Fortress have never taken the challenge of making a new album lightly, and again took a radically uncompromising attitude in concept and composing. Many songs were written since 2010's Ylem, and many were discarded again to make sure the new material would be able to exceed previous releases in quality, relevance and authenticity. Increasing scheduling conflicts with the member's other bands and jobs, as well as the humongous amount of hours that this endeavor required, had forced the band to postpone this release a few times in recent years. At the end of an excessive recording session in late 2013, 9 songs were chosen to mark the band's 20-year anniversary with what they hope will become a landmark album in their long career."

Further details will be announced later. A tour and video clip are in the making for autumn 2014. Get ready!
