Winterfylleth - The Ghost of Heritage

Winterfylleth's debut album The Ghost of Heritage from 2008 has been remastered and expanded, and is now available on the Candlelight Records Bandcamp (it was originally released by Profound Lore). This is atmospheric pagan inspired black metal. Islander from No Clean Singing describes the two new tracks:
"They’re mid-paced, almost to the point of being stately and dignified. The band use cascading waves of distorted tremolo chords and acoustic guitar interludes to weave slow, lush, somber melodies. The roiling sounds of double bass and blast beats and the smash and crash of cymbals add to the contrast between the viciousness of the instrumentation and the beauty of the melodies they create."
and this is a description that fits quite well with the rest of the album. The remaster by Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia, and Gorguts) sounds great, the epic songs has room to breathe, the quieter passages stand clear, and the guitars are raw and crunching. Here are reviews of the original version of The Ghost of Heritage from Teeth of the Divine and From the Dust Returned.
