WINTERFYLLETH: Stereogum Streams The Threnody of Triumph In Its Entirety

By on September 25, 2012

WINTERFYLLETH combine vicious yet moody, folk-inspired black metal that harkens back to the early days of Enslaved and old-school Ulver. The band’s lyrics delve into tales of England’s archaic history, recounting major events, battles. They draw inspiration from sites and scenery gracing the countryside that has played an integral part in the country’s history. Formed in 2007, WINTERFYLLETH features Vocalist/guitarist C. Naughton with drummer S. Lucas, guitarist M. Wood, and bassist N. Wallwork.
 “The Threnody of Triumph …builds a monument of utter brilliance upon an already superlative foundation. Riffs pummel from all angles. The majestic scale of the thing is so inspiring that a palpable feeling of grandeur becomes the dominant subtext, each section swelling into an impossibly emotive crescendo.” —  Lurkers Path
 “WINTERFYLLETH have not only created their best work to date but are also sitting on one of the best releases of the year. Releases like this are incredibly rare, for this is art in its purest form. A threnody of triumph indeed, perhaps more than the band ever realized,” –  Blistering
 “WINTERFYLLETH cement their standing as one of England’s most dynamic and interesting black metal acts.” – This Is Not A Scene
“…sure footed, confident, elegantly composed and epic.” – Ave Noctum
