Swedish Folk Metal forerunners FALCONER return to glory with their new album “Black Moon Rising” to be released the 6th of June, 2014 via Metal Blade Records!
After the release of their last album “Armod” in 2011 – the first one entirely sung in Swedish and concentrating on the folk elements in the music – FALCONER return to the power and the glory of their roots.
“Black Moon Rising” – as usually recorded with Andy LaRocque – is a lot more guitar oriented, riff filled and the fastest album in the band history to date making FALCONER sound hungrier and more vital than in many years.
Comments FALCONER main composer Stefan Weinerhall: “After a 8 month complete break from music on the verge of quitting it, I finally returned with a feeling of hunger, power and commitment to the song writing. The goal we all had was to wake up, stir things up a bit and perform at our very best. And so we all did!!”
