Winterfylleth announce details of brand new studio album ‘The Dark Hereafter’

Winterfylleth 2016

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!”

Winterfylleth announce new album ‘The Divination of Antiquity’

Winterfylleth 2014

English black metal masters Winterfylleth have announced details of their new album.

Titled The Divination of Antiquity, the LP will be released via Candlelight Records on the 6th of October and will comprise nine new tracks that the band describe as their strongest to date.

Speaking of the release, frontman Chris Noughton said: “The new album represents a real step forward… I really think that we poured over the material much more meticulously in the making of this album and I think that shows through in the finished article. The new songs really focus on the more melodic, passionate and expansive end of our spectrum this time around… including some slower, doomier elements.”

“We recorded the new album with Chris Fielding again, but this time at his newly established Skyhammer Studios,” Noughton continued. “I think that’s really given it a boost. His vision and a fresh recording environment has helped us to hone the essence of what a Winterfylleth record can be on …Divination. We hope you all agree!”

The full tracklisting for The Divination of Antiquity is:

Winterfylleth Divination Cover“The Divination Of Antiquity”
“Whisper of the Elements”
“Warrior Herd”
“A Careworn Heart”
“Foundations of Ash”
“The World Ahead”
“Over Borderlands”
“Forsaken in Stone”
“Pariah’s Path”

Winterfylleth will be playing a set at this year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival, taking place between 7th – 10th of August at Catton Park in Derbyshire.
