Behold a brand new and limited edition merch design by the legendary illustrator, Misanthropic-Art, is now for sale on our Bandcamp! These shirts were masterfully printed by Jersey’s finest, Wreckless Press, and are available in black and light gray—sizes ranging from S to 2XL.
Also, in case you missed your chance to snag one from the first batch, we have a fresh restock of the blue splatter variant “Breaths of Elder Dawns” double LPs from Avantgarde Music!
Since most human interactions are a hault due to this pandemic we’ve been concentrating on the pre-production of our next record. No shows for us—or for our other bands—has granted us the opportunity to focus on the details of the next chapter of our journey. We have narrowed the album down to seven hefty songs and are currently gearing up to begin tracking next month. Stay safe, friends. See you soon.
We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Canadian label PRC Music to reissue ‘Solar’. ‘Solar’ was originally released during July 2012 as a digipak (limited to 300 copies) that has since gone out of print. This edition will feature a jewel case release with revamped artwork and a bonus track*.
Limited edition yellow and black vinyl LPs along with the digipak CD issued by Avantgarde Music are now available for purchase via our Bandcamp. Also available is the cassette version issued by Folkvangr Records.
“Broadly speaking, this new album is a work of grand ambition and true passion, the band persistently driving themselves to unabashedly tug at the listener’s heartstrings and also to send the heart soaring and the mind spinning toward mythic heights.” – No Clean Singing
“Windfaerer’s Alma is a delightful listen. With each release the band continues to grow and to establish their style of black metal.” – [4/5] Toilet Ov Hell
“[Instead] of splitting the listener’s attention into what the strings are doing and what the rest of the band is doing, the different parts, on the compositional level, are more complementary and cohesive. This doesn’t mean that Alma is simpler; on the contrary, it’s an intricate album with lots to listen to. But check out the opening to “Becoming”, the second track and listen to how the strings work with everything else on the intro, how they “serve up” the listener into the main riff. That’s what makes Alma so great and what enables me to finally say: I love Windfaerer.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Rare is the merging of folk elements and black metal done with such a degree of pure atmosphere, devotion and sophistication. ” – [8/10] Dead Rhetoric
Pre-orders for vinyl (available in yellow and black) and digipak CD are now live via Avantgarde Music. You can order your copy on their BigCartel or Bandcamp. (Download codes are included for BigCartel purchases.)
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.
