FORGOTTEN SUNRISE is a band both legendary and current; inventors in one era, and innovators in the present day. Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, the group has evolved and morphed over time into its current formation of Anders Melts, Kadri Sammel, and Jaan Pullerits. A huge part of the Estonian cultural landscape that comprises dark music, Forgotten Sunrise began life as a death metal band in the early 90s, part of the movement that spawned groups such as Amorphis, Beherit, Anathema, My Dying Bride, and Katatonia. As styles converged, and electronics entered the picture, the group incorporated newer techniques and a more industrial approach over time, consolidating their methods into a unique strain they call “OUTDUSTRIAL” - outsider industrial.
elu is the first album in the “HALL-ELU-JAH” trilogy. Starting in the middle, the band has an expansive story arc set across 3 albums. In this first presentation of the trilogy, elu synchronizes the classic Death Metal style vocal with ethereal female voice, horror atmosphere, and pounding EBM rhythyms to create 8 memorable and visceral tracks. From high-energy dancefloor-fillers like “Orthotoxic Waste” and “Deep Emoceans” to heavy industrial grinders like “Near Bye” and “iSaid” to the emotional close of “Meating 8:08” into “Elukas”, the album provides a serene metamorphosis, guiding the listener through the many-worlds-as-one experience of Forgotten Sunrise.

thank you! legendary early Frontline Assembly side project, that I have purchased many times in many formats over the years. This one goes back to the early WaxTrax! label days.. I never got into the newer industrial as much, as I just prefer the more primitive era..I wish FLA bandcamp page had the WaxTrax! era albums there too.."Caustic Grip", "Gashed Senses..." "Disorder", "Corrosion", etc.. legendary!! Cyberaktif, Delerium as well.. Shane Dangers
Imagine,Godfles,Scorn,Killing Joke,Whalesong,all playing at the same time.What this lacks in originality it more than makes up for its sheer single mindedness and sheer passion.Dying is an art,long live Lady Lazarus! Michael Carter
