The year is 1891. The members of the Gentleman's Club of A FOREST OF STARS, an exclusive brotherhood of English Victorians, consider themselves to be exponents of their glorious and pompous, at times decadent era characterized by extreme opposites. A FOREST OF STARS channel the experiences gained from their numerous meetings hazed by opium and absinthe, occult rites and seances in the form of a previously unheard-of ghostly and hypnotic music, filled with the spirit of the glorious Victorian Age - a harrowing testimony of their many spiritual and sensual excesses.
The Corpse of Rebirth catches A FOREST OF STARS' first conjuration on tape, now being re-released with an additional spell (bonustrack) in a fittingly noble digibook.
If you can drift off and lose yourself in the scenes and vignettes A Forest Of Stars throw up throughout The Corpse of Rebirth, then do so, because it's like finding Narnia. - One Metal 5/5
