Falconer Posts "O, Tysta Ensamhet" From New Album "Armod"

Swedish folk metallers Falconer have launched their second single "O, tysta ensamhet," taken off their brand new studio album "Armod" via the German Metal Hammer website. You can check out the song by heading over to this location.

Falconer will release the band's seventh studio album "Armod" on June 7th via Metal Blade Records in North America. The CD features 11 songs completely sung in Swedish and four bonus tracks that are English versions of the band members' favorite new songs.

Comments Falconer guitarist Stefan Weinerhall: "The album is embracing the Swedish folk music to a greater extent than before making it sound slightly more down to earth. The music spans from acoustic songs with cello, flute and fiddle to songs with blast beats and really heavy riffing. As said before this is a 'one-time-only' album and does not define the future sound of FALCONER, but it was about time to pay full notice to the influence that has always made us different. Now we have that out of our system!"

"Armod" was once again recorded at King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque's Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden, during December and January. The "Armod" track listing and cover artwork can be viewed below.

I had completely forgot about these guys until I read this. I find it really hard to get into mostly acoustic music in another language, so this is kind of lost on me.

Either way, I think this band has a case of "Boston Syndrome", if you will. Nothing has seemed to live up to the quality of their first album. I haven't followed them all that closely in recent years but nothing seems to have the magic their original album had.
