A Forest of Stars are one of the most interesting black metal bands on the British scene. Like Akercocke, a fellow British metal act, A Forest of Stars bring a lot of class to the scene in the United Kingdom. Their mixture of unusual music and stylish Victorian dress sense brings a lot of charisma and charm to the British side of metal, too. Their fresh take on metal music has been fantastic to witness and with the release of their 2008 full-length debut, entitled ‘The Corpse of Rebirth’, I just knew this band would have a lot to offer in the future. With their recent sophomore, entitled ‘The Opportunistic Thieves of Spring’, the band are living up to my grand expectations of them. When I first heard the debut, I was enthralled, but this album is even more engaging and even more weird than the debut! I wasn’t expecting these twists and turns to even occur on this album. What I had actually expected was an album that was in a similar mould to the previous but, perhaps apart from the growled vocals, the performance has seen a lot of new features added to it that give the band even more appeal and add to their sense of intrigue.
