FROSTWORK: Black Metal Veteran Prefers To Remain Anonymous For New Project

One of the UK's veteran black metallers has started a solo ambient black metal project that goes by the name of FROSTWORK. The band produces a hauntingly cold and eerie sound, very much in keeping with its name, but FROSTWORK's creator is reluctant to reveal his identity. He is, however, willing to explain why he feels the need for anonymity. "Some people would say it's a ploy to create a mystique around the name in order to generate interest, but in this case it really isn't," he says. "On the contrary, it would have been much easier for me to use an already established name and reputation, whether good or bad, to help launch the new project, so I'm probably not doing myself any favors by trying to remain anonymous. I thought about it carefully though, and came to the conclusion that my existing band has a very definite sound and image, and I did not want FROSTWORK to be burdened by comparisons. FROSTWORK is nothing like the material I have previously produced with a full lineup, nor is it intended to be. The concept is different and the sound is different, and it should be judged on its own merits."

Work on the first demo is currently underway, and two tracks, "Shades of Grey" and "The Eyes of the Forest" have been uploaded to the band's official MySpace page.
