Guitarist Stefan Weinerhall of the Swedish folk metallers FALCONER has just posted a band update.
“The Falconer is awake from slumber. After the darkest year yet I am once again in writing mood, and what a mood! I guess somethig good really can come out of something bad after all. After rebooting musically from a year of creative vacuum there is a fresh hunger and optimism.
The 6 songs completed so far are harder and faster and with more of an attitude again, some of the songs sound like taken from the first album. After reading a book about desiphering and reading the language of runestones I really got some lyrical inspiration too!
I must say that it hasn’t been this rewarding and promising for many years to write for a new album, without being carried away too far.The future plan is to concentrate on writing, re-writing and rehearsing for the new album, being sure it is as good as it can and not re-using too many patterns. All songs will be in english this time.
We are just to begin rehearsing once again after a 2 year break and I can’t wait to put Mathias through some tests and find out the speed limit of Karsten.
Hails from Stefan and the falcons!!”
