Edenfall release Under Sultry Moons and Velvet Skies - May 2014

British gothic doom metal band Edenfall are just a few days away from releasing their second full-length album Under Sultry Moons and Velvet Skies.  Since releasing their first album, Forever Fallen in 2011 the band have added to their line-up, spent some time touring and signed with independent record label RavenHeart Music.

Under Sultry Moons and Velvet Skies features 10 tracks:
01. The Rhinemaiden’s Song

02. Thistle’s Cairn

03. Obsidian

04. Dark Wings, Dark Words

05. Wolves

06. Made of Mist

07. The Wyvern Child

08. Escaping

09. Wandering Moon

10. She Brings the Winter

Lyrically the album will cover some of the mythologies surrounding witchcraft.  Clare Webster, vocalist and lyricist of Edenfall, talked about these lyrical influences for each song on YouTube last week. Check it out here.

Two tracks have been made available on YouTube: She Brings the Winter and Wolves.  Both tracks are pretty immense and if they are anything to go by, the new album will be dark, moody and pretty epic indeed.

If you want to know more about the album, Edenfall's own guitarist/vocalist/songwriter/producer Rob George features in a video discussing the music from the new album in a track-by-track guide, along
with album samplers of each song.  Check it out here.

Under Sultry Moons and Velvet Skies is released on Monday 12th May 2014 and will be available to buy directly from the bands website.

Edenfall are made up of Clare Webster (Lead Vocals), Rob George (Guitar and Vocals), Brazil (Bass Guitar), Marcelo Teixeira (Drums & Percussion) and Steve Mercy (Guitar).
