Winterfylleth/The Threnody Of Triumph/Candlelight Records/2012 CD Review


  Winterfylleth  are  a  band  from  the  U.K  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  which  plays  a  very  atmospheric,  raw  and  primitive  form  of  folk  inspired  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their 2012  album  "The  Threnody  Of  Triumph"  which  was  released  by  Candlelight  Records.

  Drums  range  from slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the music  at  times,  while  the  keyboards  bring  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  music  along  with  a  brief  use  of  violins,  as  for the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  along  with  a  good  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  and  folk  metal  influences  being  thrown  into  the  riffing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  they  use  full  chords  to  bring  a  more  medieval  sound  to the  music.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  with  some  clean  singing  being  thrown  into  the music  at  times  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  deep  growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  England's  history,  main  events  and  battles,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  recording  from  Winterfylleth  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Swart  Raven"  "The  Glorious  Plain"  "Void  Of  Life"  and  "The  Threnody  Of  Triumph".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
