Folkloric black metal outfit Windfaerer have premiered a lyric video for their new track “Finisterra” over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The gloom-laden track, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming full-length, Tenebrosum, is full of melodic, virtuosic riffs that are drenched in melancholic atmospheres. The band comments on the new track:
“The lyrics to ‘Finisterra’ are about discovery and seclusion. What we learn about history is only the recorded account, but the truth is eventually unearthed through the passing of centuries. The lyrics are inspired by legends of medieval Basque fishermen who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, always returning with cod and never revealing the secret origin of their bounty.”
Check out the eight-minute jam after the break.
Tenebrosum will be released on September 22.
