Winterfylleth advances their global rise with the release of their fourth full-length album, The Divination of Antiquity, on September 16. Pitchfork says, "Winterfylleth's take on black metal is as cold as any Norwegian son." Stereogum's Michael Nelson boldly notes, "I've never understood why Winterfylleth aren't one of the biggest black metal bands in the world." Eight new vitriolic anthems gorged with the band's technical precision await a growing international fanbase. "I feel like we've really put our all into this record and that it shows through in the final songs," says vocalist Chris Naughton. "it's the first record where we've truly come together and written it as a band, pouring over songs for weeks to get them just right. I guess we felt a bit more pressure this time but we really turned that into something positive."

Since their formation in 2007, England's Winterfylleth has conjured moods and emotions that range from vicious and violent to melodic and elegant. The band recently contributed to One And All, Together, For Home; a special compilation (Season Of Mist) that finds the band performing their version of the old English folk ballad "The Three Ravens". The acoustic number illustrates the heavy historical influence that has always been at the core of the band's lyrics. With UK dates alongside Behemoth set for early winter, Winterfylleth's siege is indeed full-throttle. "We have made a quintessentially Winterfylleth album on Divination", Naughton continues, "but we've also shone light into a few dark corners and pushed the envelope on what we can write as a band; bringing in different tempos, some slower songs and a few doomier influences. For me this represents that band at our creative, visceral, and collaborative best."

Heard a leak, wasn't impressed. It's basically in suit with the previous two albums, so not that interesting. There are (as mentioned in JN's post) a few stylistic change-ups here and there, but really I didn't hear any material that was remotely impressive. Very "meh" feeling.

I enjoyed Whisper of the Elements (which definitely had some stylistic change-ups) a lot more than their previous material, does the rest of the album not follow suit?

I'm liking this much more than there last album, nice straight forward atmospheric bm. Though after a few listens it is a bit bland
