Two years after the release of their seminal album The Divination of Antiquity (2014), pioneers of contemporary UK Black Metal, Winterfylleth return with their highly anticipated new release, The Dark Hereafter on Spinefarm / Candlelight Records / Caroline Australia. Musically we find the band progressing with their ideas and moving into uncharted territories; exploring longer, more expansive songs and building on their signature sound with style & intent. Thematically The Dark Hereafter casts a light on how we are now seeing the negative, long term effects of bad policy making and global oligarchy playing out in our society; how we have learnt all of these lessons before and yet ignore the wisdom of the ages.
“After two years away we are really pleased to share this new record with you all. We thought a lot about making it, what it has to say lyrically, what that means, and how we progress along with that – as a band approaching our 10th year of existence. In recent years it feels like we have been living in an uncertain and unsettling world, and on ‘The Dark Hereafter’ we wanted to bring the issues surrounding that uncertainty to life within these new songs. They carry a lot of meaning and sentiment for us and we hope they will also have that meaning for you too. We look forward to seeing you all along the way in 2016/17!”
