Black Fortress of Opium is named after a real place in Turkey - Afyonkarahisar. The town''s name means "Black Fortress of Opium". In this town, there is an ancient fortress perched atop a hill. Much lore surrounds the history of this place.

Dark and intriguing. Eclectic instrumentation lends to a vibe reminiscent of Americana and the Middle East simultaneously. The sound is haunting; the songs speak of life, love, misery, and the human condition.
