FELLWARDEN - "Wreathed in Mourncloud" - Full album stream
British black metal mavericks FELLWARDEN have revealed a full stream of their highly anticipated second album, "Wreathed in Mourncloud".
"Wreathed in Mourncloud" delivers a huge, widescreen journey across rugged realms steeped in ancient, half-forgotten tales and redolent with the whispers of old ghosts. Waves of guitars and bombastic keyboards are propelled by the inventive poundings of Havenless’ expert battery. The Watcher meanwhile adopts myriad voices with which to bring these five stories to life – harsh screams, proud bellows, desperate roars, and sorrowful choirs speak of loss, regret, resolve, and tragedies long since dissolved within the mists of time.
From the chiming opening refrains of "Pathmaker" to the final, strident, and harrowing conclusion of "Upon Stone," Wreathed in Mourncloud represents a captivating 60-minute traverse into shadow-haunted canyons and across wind-scoured plateaus. With stunning artwork courtesy of legendary black metal artist Kris Verwimp, the record will once again be delivered courtesy of Germany’s Eisenwald in CD and vinyl editions. Out on June 26th 2020!
