Keys to the Fortress

It’s only been about a year since the release of Human Fortress’ last studio album Reign of Gold. With the industry still on lockdown, the German 6-piece wanted to do something special for their fans. On February 12, 2021 Human Fortress will release Epic Tales & Untold Stories through Massacre Records. The collection is described as one disc of hits and one disc of rare, new, and unreleased. I spoke with vocalist Gus Monsanto to find out all about the album, and more.

Highlights Include:

  • Discussion of Epic Tales and Untold Stories compilation
  • Monsanto’s appreciation for the vinyl format
  • Where the inspiration for Human Fortress’ lyrics come from
  • His greatest tour experience
