Falconer - Writing New Material

Swedish folk/power metallers Falconer are composing new songs. Even though the band has been very quiet following the release of Armod in 2011, the time has come to write new material. According to Stefan Weinerhall, the new songs are coming out faster and some sounding like something from their debut Falconer. This time, you can expect all the songs to be in English.

Update from guitarist Stefan Weinerhall: "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 deciphering 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!! Stefan / 28:th of January 2013"

Thumbs up for the epic white lacy jabot in the band picture.

Great news, these guys are one of the few power metal bands out there who deserve every bit of praise they receive; I can't wait for the new one! The whole returning to the roots thing sounds quite promising although I am always excited for new Falconer material no matter the direction.
