Course Of Fate

Course of Fate
Somnium (DOWNLOAD)
ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records
Release: 25 August 2023

“Somnium” is dedicated to the memory of Jan Daniel Nygaard.

Course of Fate is back with the follow-up to 2020’s critically acclaimed Mindweaver. An album heavily colored by the loneliness and insecurities of two years of pandemic lockdowns. “Somnium” hits harder and darker than its predecessor while simultaneously touching deeper with some of the most moving material the band has ever written. Incorporating elements from both contemporary as well as classic Scandinavian metal genres, Course of Fate hits with a wider, heavier and more diverse sound than their prog metal label could ever cover.

“Somnium” will be released on August 25, 2023 as Digipack CD, Violet Vinyl limited to 300 copies worldwide and digital streaming/download format.
