Winterfylleth – The Reckoning Dawn8th May 2020 0 By Mark Booth
English black metallers WINTERFYLLETH are due to bless us with their seventh album ‘The Reckoning Dawn’ via Candlelight Records. These Manchester based black metallers were seen as the trve kings of the UK black metal scene. A band who could rival and compete with their behemoth Scandinavian brethren. ‘The Reckoning Dawn’ sprawls forth from your speakers at a colossal speed, with riffs that collide majestically with the blistering barrage from the rhythm section. All while the trademark snarls of vocalist Chris Naughton are still as vicious as before, this is highlighted when the roar sears above the chants of his fellow brethren.
WINTERFYLLETH keep the maelstrom assualt at full speed and enrapturing riffs enthral the listener into the grandeur soundscape and atmosphere that WINTERFYLLETH conjour on ‘The Reckoning Dawn’. With only the short delicate acoustic interlude of ‘Betwixt Two Crowns’ giving respite to the listener before ‘Yielding The March Law’ returns to the hauntingly beautiful brutality WINTERFYLLETH have unshackled upon the black metal scene with this release.
They showcase moments of beauty and unnerving calm foreboding the savagery that will be untethered to reign free and consummate the unholy matrimony of melody, sorrow and serenity admist the wild cacophony of explosive clattering drums, riffs that transition between melodic and ferocious with relative ease and the spectral poetic snarls which regale the tales and captivates the listener until the final notes heralding in the end of the journey.
WINTERFYLLETH have reignited their passion and focus and have rightfully regained their throne as Kings of the UK black metal scene and this is a release that is a must have.
