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.

“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
This Fall we will embark on a few dates throughout the Northeastern states in support of our latest release ‘Alma’. Joining us for select dates will be our comrades Ancalagon and Winterhymn.

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.

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.
