Seeing as Winterfylleþ was the Old English name for the month of October I thought it was only fitting I review their latest album The Dark Hereafter during that month. The Dark Hereafter is the bands 5th full-length since their formation in 2007, soon celebrating 10 years. Time sure does go fast as it seems it was only a couple of years ago since I first heard of them.
Continuing their lyrical theme of nature, paganism and landscapes you can see this as a Primordial meets Saor style of black metal. I am quite sure you know this though since I take it everyone into underground metal have heard about Winterfylleth by now. They do keep the same type of style as they have since their debut The Ghost of Heritage and why shouldn’t they? If it aint broke don’t fix it. They have simply refined their original sound and made it even better.
Fans of Winterfylleth will surely recognise the sound and feel right at home. While if you are a new listener to Winterfylleth you are in luck, as this is their best work yet and a perfect time to start listening to Winterfylleth.
