Forgotten Path is an effort to resurrect some old traditions, a spirit that has been dis-remembered for some time. It is the way that we believe in and try to follow it. For that reason “Forgotten Path Magazine” is our main goal and devotion.
Today, when internet and informational technologies have conquered each corner of our daily life, we feel that there’s a demand to create something more worthy of your emotions. Something that requires a lot of work, passion and patience, but gives an unmeasured satisfaction. More over, it brings back the old spirit – the underground, where Black Metal should always be.
Black Metal is one of the most controversial fields – one wrong step and you’ll turn from reality to circus. We see that it has lost its concept, its idea, its core and roots. This magazine is an effort to get back to where it started – the IDEA. No, we do not deny the evolution of BM – we do not scorn different derivatives, we simply say – let’s get back to where it all started. Remember – the concept, the thought, the emotion and the idea – these aspects are the foundation of Black Metal.
Nowadays, when there are tons of worthless labels and bands, the only way to separate gold from chaff is sincerity and real passion. However, though everybody is declaring the unity and support, very few people actually perform what they say. For that reason Forgotten Path is starting its label activity. We won’t become another hard pressing record company. Our main goal is a small mail-order, which could provide revenue for the magazine realization. All income that would be achieved through music selling would always be reserved for the magazine printing and layout expenses.
More over, we are always supporting young underground Black Metal bands. That means that if there’s any possibility, we will definitely do our best to promote them.
We believe there’s a dose of you, metalheads, who are on the same path as we are. So support traditions, passion and underground!
