Wayfarer announce new album details

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, March 19, 2018 at 2:09 PM (PST)

Denver black metal act WAYFARER has issued the cover art, track listing, and other details of their impending third LP, World’s Blood, nearing May release through Profound Lore Records. The band also announces new spring tour dates with the likes of Primitive Man, Krallice, Forn, and more.

A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of their native Colorado, WAYFARER tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the “Denver sound” and the scores of epic Westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal, WAYFARER brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. Their third album World’s Blood paints a hallucinatory picture of the Western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soils from a culture lost to time.

WAYFARER recorded World’s Blood in the winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston. The cover displays an antique photograph by Edward S. Curtis taken in Montana in 1908.

Profound Lore will release World’s Blood on May 25th; audio samples, preorders, and more will be released in the weeks ahead.

Colorado’s Wayfarer craft moody and dark stories via unconventional atmospheric metal with more winding paths than a Tolkien tale. Their Prosthetic debut Children Of The Iron Age is an at times an expressive yet somber meditation and elsewhere an expulsion of screaming nerves beneath vast skies. Like Agalloch or Iceland’s  Sólstafir before them, Wayfarer’s baleful yet contrarily heartening melodic dirges (often reaching over ten minutes per song) are sure to quicken your wanderlust and slaken your thirsty despair over a drout of epic thinking person’s metal. Recommended track: “The Elemental.”
