“The sun is rising. Over a tortured and scarred landscape, the sun crawls over the horizon with a feverish scarlet glow. Its sick corona of expanding light makes the air glimmer like a tangible plague, which sickens all living things directly exposed to its light…”


And so it begins… As the living light starts to send its deadly rays upon the Earth DARK FORTRESS have launched the opener and title track of their forthcoming album ‘Venereal Dawn’ – listen to it here



‘Venereal Dawn’ is scheduled for a release on the following dates:

Europe, Australia / NZ: September 1st, 2014

USA, Canada: September 2nd, 2014


“What happens to life on earth if the fragile laws of nature are altered even by a little bit? How can the human psyche deal with the perspective of inevitable extinction? How far can the human soul be stripped before its essence vanishes completely? Can we contain the implications of forced and radical evolution and the insanity it brings?” Questions raised by DARK FORTRESS frontman and lyricist Morean on the band’s 7th studio album ‘Venereal Dawn’. Like most previous DARK FORTRESS albums, ‘Venereal Dawn’ is again a concept album. Its nine songs weave a tale of survival, betrayal and sacrifice in an extremely hostile environment:


1. Venereal Dawn

2. Lloigor

3. Betrayal And Vengeance

4. Chrysalis

5. I Am The Jigsaw Of A Mad God

6. The Deep

7. Odem

8. Luciform

9. On Fever’s Wings


Expect epic song structures, mighty sonic cathedrals, virulent and sinister magic and lots of unexpected twists and turns as the bands drags you screaming and headbanging through the abysmal roller coaster of their universe once more.


To spill the viciousness of their upcoming, 7th studio album ‘Venereal Dawn’ live DARK FORTRESS will tour throughout Europe together with Secrets Of The Moon and Schammasch in October:
