If you've had a chance to watch the snazzy new book trailer for the novel An Augmented Fourth you might have heard some choogling doomy tunes playing during it that you will have found yourself headbanging along to almost as if against your will. These are the unearthed tracks from the masters of metal, England's Frivolous Black, the first and mightiest metal band of them all. And whose bass player and lyricist Codger Burton finds himself as the main character thrown in the darkness and danger of the novel An Augmented Fourth.

These exhumed lost classics are now available as free downloads, so rejoice you black hearted children of the gloaming.

"Beyond This Sleepless Dream" was the first single off Friv's legendary third album Summoner of Sorrows released in 1973; widely regarded critically as the group's finest effort.

The other lost necro nugget is the song entitled "Frivolous Black " from the band Frivolous Black which was also the first number on their debut album of the name Frivolous Black. Fuck you Bad Company, they did it first.
