We are pleased to announce that legendary label Avantgarde Music will release the third full-length Windfaerer record Alma this September.
Alma is about the intangible cosmic forces that drive us onto a path we may not understand. We walk upon a dark course muddled with despair but with flares of hope. The lyrics focus on relinquishing control and being guided toward home by one’s essence. The mechanics of the writing and recording process of Alma echoes these themes. Whereas in previous efforts M. Gonçalves and B. Karas, have been the sole composers, the songs on this album were composed and performed by a full band.
Alma is engineered by Scot Moriarty (Organ Dealer) and Kevin Antreassian (The Dillinger Escape Plan) at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey, mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian and produced by Windfaerer. Avantgarde Music will release the album both on CD and vinyl on September 14th, and you can stream “Dawn of Phantom Light” on Youtube.
Today we are pleased to announce the release of Coniuratio Nigrum Atlantika, a three-way split with our comrades in WolfCloak and Dumal. Our portion of the split was recorded between the winter months of January and March 2016 at One Stone Recording with Peter Lloyd in New Brunswick, NJ. This split debuts a new lineup for Windfaerer, featuring Muñoz on bass, Keren on guitar, and Applegate on drums. The entire split was mastered by Bill Henderson of Azimuth Mastering.
Full Windfaerer lineup:
Gonçalves – Voice, guitars
Karas – Acoustic & electric violins
Keren – Guitars

Applegate – Drums
For the WolfCloak and Dumal portions of the split:
