The members of the Gentleman's Club of A Forest Of Stars, an exclusive brotherhood of English Victorians, consider themselves to be exponents of their glorious and pompous, at times decadent era characterized by extreme opposites. A Forest Of Stars channel the experiences gained from their numerous meetings hazed by opium and absinthe, occult rites and séances in the form of a previously unheard-of ghostly and hypnotic music, filled with the spirit of the glorious Victorian Age – a harrowing testimony of their many spiritual and sensual excesses.

Although they are ostensibly known as a black metal band, England's A Forest of Stars borrow liberally from foreign sonic invaders such as folk music elements, avant-garde atmospherics, and psychedelic art rock to formulate their rather unique personal style.
Launched in 2007 by the colorfully named Mister Curse (vocals), Katheryne, Queen of the Ghosts (aka Kati Stone of My Dying Bride -- violin, flute, vocals), the Gentleman (synths, pianoforte, drums), and Mr. T.S. Kettleburner (guitar, bass, vocals), A Forest of Stars made their recording debut with 2008's limited-edition (just 1,000 initial copies) The Corpse of Rebirth album, later reissued in larger quantities by the Transcendental Creations label.
After the debut, they have realised 3 more albums:
Opportunistic Thieves of Spring (2010), A Shadowplay for Yesterdays (2012), and Beware the Sword You Cannot See (2015).
