The Black Forest – marked by mystical landscapes, its spirit rules the southwestern German souls.

Its wealth of brute power and mightiness led a dark horde to the decision to embody the beauty of the Black Forest in a musical way, back in 2004. Hitting the stages in 2007, a decent public attention was attracted and after the publication of the debut EP "Wiege der Finsternis" and the debut album "Weltenkraft", the horde found a new home at the German record label Einheit Produktionen. The second studio album "...zum Tode hin" was introduced to the public in early 2009 and could deeply satisfy a wide range of different musical preferences. It's the year 2013 – to date, a frightening large amount of knuckles of pork along with a greatly exaggerated quantity of Schnaps was consumed and countless breathtaking concerts were performed. With a new singer at the front and a third fully produced studio album, the band signed a contract with the Austrian label Napalm Records.

"Rastlos" represents the new status of Finsterforst and exceeds everything that has been done before. The era of Black Forest Metal has begun!.
