UK black metal titans Winterfylleth have shared details of their new album.
The Dark Hereafter is the follow up to 2014’s The Divination of Antiquity and will be released via Spinefarm/Candlelight records on the 30th of September.
The album is said to see “…the band progressing their ideas and moving into uncharted territories; exploring longer, more expansive songs and building on their signature sound with style & intent. Thematically ‘The Dark Hereafter’ casts a light on how we are now seeing the negative, long term effects of bad policy making and global oligarchy playing out in our societies, how we have learnt all of these lessons before and yet ignore the wisdom of the ages.”
Winterfylleth have once again worked with Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio and Tim Turan and Turan Audio to make the record a reality.
Says guitarist Chris Naughton: “After two years away we are really pleased to share this new record with you all. We thought a lot about making it, what it has to say lyrically, what that means and how we progress along with that as a band approaching our 10th year of existence. In recent years it feels like we have been living in an uncertain and unsettling world, and on ‘The Dark Hereafter’ we wanted to bring the issues surrounding that uncertainty to life, within these new songs. They carry a lot of meaning and sentiment for us and we hope they will also have that meaning for you too. We look forward to seeing you all along the way in 2016/17!”
