Winterfylleth Posts New Song "The Fate Of Souls After Death"

Today Pitchfork hosts the exclusive premiere of “The Fate of Souls After Death” from U.K. black metal horde Winterfylleth. Give the song a listen right here.

The track comes off the band’s forthcoming "The Threnody of Triumph" full-length, which was recorded in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard). The album is set to drop on September 25th, 2012. Comments guitarist/vocalist C. Naughton:

“’The Fate of Souls…’ is probably one of the darker songs we have written as a band. Its concept is self evident from its title in that it is about what happens to the soul after death and how the essence of a human is transported onwards. The song is a personal favorite and may be a bit of a curveball in terms of the usual Winterfylleth sound. The riffs are darker and more swirling, the vocals are probably the gruffest I have recorded and the vibe is quite off kilter and a little more progressive than some of our other material. I hope you enjoy it."

Adds Pitchfork: “About halfway through ‘The Fate of Souls After Death,’ a late-album highlight from The Threnody of Triumph… the band slows the black-metal pummel upon which the track has depended. The drums drop into a half-time march, and the guitars relax their harsh roar, riffs etching harmonies against a background wall of distortion. But don't coast into reverie quite yet: Winterfylleth break the séance with fury, panic screams, and united-in-rage guitars that clash with the blurred drums for a perfect, primal burnout. The antiphonal, fast-slow-fast structure is a familiar trick of so-called atmospheric black metal; Winterfylleth just work to ensure that the atmosphere is as damaged as possible.”

The track list for "The Threnody of Triumph" is as follows:

1. A Thousand Winters
2. The Swart Raven
3. Æfterield-Fréon
4. A Memorial
5. The Glorious Pain
6. A Soul Unbound
7. Void of Light
8. The Fate of Souls After Death
9. Home Is Behind
10. The Threnody of Triumph
