Falconer Reveals "Black Moon Rising" Details

The Swedish folk metal forerunners in Falconer return to glory with their new album "Black Moon Rising," which is scheduled to be released the June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK, and June 10th in North America. The first single to be released from the album, "Locust Swarm," can be heard below.

"Black Moon Rising" was recorded at Sonic Train Studios with Andy LaRocque. According to a press release, this album is "the most guitar oriented, riff-filled, and fastest Falconer release to date."

Comments Falconer main composer Stefan Weinerhall: "After an 8 month complete break from music on the verge of quitting it, I finally returned with a feeling of hunger, power and commitment to the song writing. The goal we all had was to wake up, stir things up a bit and perform at our very best. And so we all did!!"

01. Locust Swarm
02. Halls and Chambers
03. Black Moon Rising
04. Scoundrel and the Squire

I love the thrashy bit. They still don't seem to capture whatever it was that drew me to their first album. I haven't been able to get into any of their other albums.

The singer sounds completely passionless on this recording. Sad, it could've been so much more.
