FELLWARDEN – ‘Oathbearer’ Album details revealed


In the deepest shadows of the mist-wreathed fells of England, ancient spirits are restless…

Created by Fen frontman The Watcher in mid-2014, Fellwarden is a project that aims to convoke the splendour of the fells of northern England, the timeless spirits that imbue the heaving landscape and the valour of honourable souls that transcends such trivial notions of time or nationhood. Defiance, remembrance, sorrow and triumph are given voice by the fury of atmospheric extreme metal – metal steeped in ambience, passion and exultation.

Inspired as much by the written works of David Gemmell, Steven Eriksen, Tolkien and David Hume as  it by the musical output of early Ulver, Summoning, Drudkh, Negura Bunget, Emperor and Bathory, ‘Oathbearer’ presents 6 tracks of windswept, soaring, epic black metal. Biting guitars and desperate vocals interplay with distant choirs and panoramic synths, soundscapes echoing of conflicts long past that resonate still within the core of mankind. Invoking also the rearing grandeur of England’s  fell-country, the whole record is underpinned by a cavernous percussive battery courtesy of Havenless (also of Fen and Virophage).

‘Oathbearer’ is a heavily textured release and represents the culmination of nearly two years of work – with its evocative songwriting and passionate performances, it is sure to resonate with those who look beyond the material and the banal.
It is due to be released on ‘16/06/2017’ on both CD and vinyl formats with the following tracklisting:

  1. Guardian Unboumd
  2. Sun of Ending
  3. Wayfarer Eternal
  4. In Death, Valiant
  5. A Cairn-Keeper’s Lament
  6. Sorrowborn

Recorded 2015 – 2016 at Shockwave Studios except drums recorded at Havenless Studio. Mixed by The Watcher, mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Studios.

Personnel:
The Watcher – Voices, strings, synths
Havenless – Battery

BLAZE OF SORROW – ‘Astri’ Album details revealed


Hailing from Italy, Blaze of Sorrow was born ten years ago as a musical vessel to deliver themes of sorrow and self-reflection through nature-inspired black metal with a number of folk influences. Masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Peter, after several demos they quickly caught the attention of the underground with their self-released ‘L’ultimo Respiro’ debut albums, a record steeped in an ambience of despair and longing.

Since then, Peter has continued to fashion Blaze of Sorrow’s unique approach to atmosphere across a further three full-length albums – fusing the essence of the night sky and the tranquillity of the wilderness with outpourings of pure anguish, the band has distilled their own instantly-recognisable sound to increasing effect throughout their career.

And so in 2017, it almost feels like destiny that to mark a decade of existence, Blaze of Sorrow have chosen to join the Eisenwald roster to release their fifth album. ‘Astri’ is a fitting tribute to what the band have achieved so far in their career as well as offering a further development of their sound. Delicate acoustic guitars and sibilant, whispered vocals are contrasted with raging chords and furious percussion (courtesy of long-standing drummer N) to deliver a truly immersive and atmospheric experience. Taking cues from legendary acts such as Agalloch and Katatonia, Blaze of Sorrow paint paeans to melancholy on waves of searing melody in a beguiling blend of dark folk and raging extreme metal.

The encroaching autumnal twilight and desolate lamentations to the lost are what Blaze of Sorrow call home – and they invite you to join them.
“Astri” is set to be released on ‘09/06/2017’ on CD /LP and digital formats with the following tracklisting:

1-Neromanto
2-Oracolo
3-Andromeda
4-Empito
5-Il Ballo Silvestre
6-Anamnesi
7-Io, Nessuno
8-Bruma

Line Up:
Peter: guitars, bass, synths, accordion and vocals
NEVON (N) : drums
