CRIMFALL unveil upcoming album details and first single

CRIMFALL - Amain

Wearing many a mask, Crimfall’s cinemascopic metal eludes easy descriptions. Harsh influences from their northern homeland and its violent roots meet echoes of black metal, but it is all iced with epic orchestration and symphonic soundtrack atmosphere. After six years of battle preparations, the band’s third full-length album “Amain” is set to be released on August 25th, 2017 by Metal Blade Records. It is their most ambitious album, combining familiar elements with fresh inspiration, and wreathed in massive crisp production from Fascination Street Studios. Featuring music that spans from monumental orchestrations to songs whispered over fading pyres, “Amain” contains layers upon layers of grand melodies woven between jagged shadows. The melodies convey soundscapes of majesty and long lost histories as the interplay of Mikko’s demonic screams and Helena’s heavenly vocals bring forth the raw despair and beauty, painting contrasts with a heavy hand as seasons of war cycle in their unforgiving descending spiral. On this latest release, Crimfall also continues to sing the stories of wars waged in vain, advocating freedom from religious dogmas and the bloody chains of tradition.

The first single “The Last of Stands” was released a couple of days ago, representing the most vigorous and pompous side of the album. Expect to be steamrolled from the first note as we unleash the frustration of past years in a single unforgiving assault. Victory or death! You can find extensive variety of pre-order items in their label’s official webshop, ranging from limited edition vinyls to t-shirt bundles. Also available is special digipak version with more than 20-mins of bonus material. Secure your copies today!

Crimfall’s story began in 2007 in Finland as Jakke Viitala gathered talented musicians around him to drive forth his lifelong vision of music that would respect no boundaries. Two albums have been released since then: debut As the Path Unfolds… (2009) and The Writ of Sword (2011), which they supported with European tours. Crimfall is now known for uncompromising visual live shows and diverse albums crafted with patience, as they never do anything half-hearted.
