Sylvan Fortress is a black metal supergroup that originated out of San Diego, California in the United States. The band formed in 2001 with the lineup of Charles Powell and Scott Lewis.[1]

History Edit

Sylvan Fortress began in 2001 out of San Diego, California.[2] The band originated after the disbanding of their previous band, Incinerate, which was formed in order to open for Extol.[3] With the lineup of Lord Charles Powell, Lord Corenth, Sir Timothy, and Sir Gazeroth, the band would press on.[2] Several members would go back and forth. By 2003, the band released a track on a compilation, Out of Darkness...By the Blood.[4] After the release, the band seemingly went defunct, consisting of only Charles Powell. Powell would add on Drummer "Throne Yeldah" for a brief time, though nothing seemingly came of it.[5]

By 2015, the only update was that Vocalist "Lonewolf" would not necessarily be able to continue.[6] In 2016, it was announced that Carnifex Drummer Shawn Cameron would be taking over the Drum position, which led to the two working on a new album.[7] In early 2017, Ronny Hansen of Antestor and Luke Renno of Taking the Head of Goliath would both be added into the lineup.[8][9][10] With the new lineup, the band set out to record their debut album, Enthroned on White.[11][12]
