Stereogum is now hosting the exclusive premiere of “The Swart Raven,” from UK black metal legion Winterfylleth. The track comes off the band’s upcoming full-length, The Threnody of Triumph, set for release in North America via Candlelight Records on September 25. Stereogum commends the record for its “sweeping, melodic grandeur and instrumental intricacies, which employ the standard black metal tools of screeched vocals, staccato guitars, and blast beat drums, but combine them with classical English instrumentation, creating something vast, inviting, and beautiful.”
Toeing the line between folk metal and black metal since 2007, Winterfylleth features C. Naughton with drummer S. Lucas, guitarist M. Wood, and bassist N. Wallwork and combine vicious yet moody, folk-inspired black metal that harkens back to the early days of Enslaved and old-school Ulver.
