Much lore surrounds the history of this place, Afyonkarahisar, where an ancient fortress is perched atop a hill. Uniting Black Fortress of Opium’s songs is the distinctive sound of female vocals, varying from powerful and soulful to soft and plaintive, combined with American folk instruments and a heady brew of electric guitars that float, swoop, and soar over fluid drumming. The songs speak of life, love, misery, and the human condition. Read more on Last.fm.
