Winterfylleth - The Reckoning Dawn

Winterfylleth are among the kings of British black metal. With more than a decade of experience under their collective belts, the group has been consistently releasing music for years now. This new record, The Reckoning Dawn is yet another triumphant step forward for the band. It showcases them at their best, unveiling waves of potent black metal glistening with gorgeous production and endlessly showcasing just how good this band is. There is so much to embrace with Winterfylleth and the magic of this new record is entrancing.

The Reckoning Dawn is a thrilling album full of Winterfylleth's trademark bombast. The crunching guitars on a track like 'Absolved In Fire' form the basis of sweeping sonic vistas. As you delve through this record you will see the epic landscapes of the British Isles unveiled before you. The strange magic that they showcase will mesmerize listeners and remind us exactly why Winterfylleth are almost universally lauded. There is a breadth to what is being done here that defies expectations and reality. With The Reckoning Dawn, Winterfylleth has been able to once more elevate the dialog around what they are doing.

This is a record you can get lost in. It's the sort of nature-inspired black metal that reminds us of the great beauty of the genre. As immense soundworlds are painted before you, it's hard to pull back. Instead one finds themselves increasingly lost in the mysticism that Winterfylleth have painted. The bands clear cut take on black metal with searing guitars and blast beats galore has never been more majestic. The band has brought us some light through the quarantine, and now it is on us to fall in love with this band all over again.
