After some very promising early releases, Harrow finally entered the realm of the masters of American Atmospheric/Folk black metal with this album. A great example of Cascadian music that still has Harrow's unique sound and elements.
Favorite track: Fragments of a Fallen Star.
“Fragments of a Fallen Star” is an observation by Harrow, recorded during the Summer of MMXII.
We would like to thank: Andy Anderson for his unwavering support, Ray, Cody, Michael Schellenberg, Nate Myers, the Brickell family for their patience and use of space, Scott Schroder for words and inspiration, Michael Ostermann and Ryan Connors and of course Derrek and Jacob for helping carry us forward.

"Fragments Of A Fallen Star is the aural equivalent of a DMT trip, rocketing from the moons of Jupiter through a dimensional portal to frosty northern forests, pagan rituals and medieval battlegrounds. Exemplary of music and lyrics in perfect alignment, Harrow’s genre-hopping sound scores an interstellar opera that subversively combines black metal’s traditional preoccupation with the mythic and fantastic with less common scientific and cosmic imagery. The usual suspects – serpents, swords and sorcery – people a heroic tale that also references DNA, space, and inter-dimensional travel while contemplating Carl Sagan-esque notions of cosmic unity and the single source origin of matter." - Cvlt Nation
