Balfor Streaming Pre-Production Songs From Upcoming Album

Ukrainian black metallers Balfor are streaming pre-production versions of two tracks as a demo of what is to come on the band’s sophomore full-length album.

“Heralds of the Fall” and “Wolfbreed” were recorded in November 2012 at the Blacklight Studio, Ukraine, with long-time Balfor producer Dmitry “Yrt Glormkhaoth” Shulgin recording the bass guitars, while the band’s former guitarist Alexander “Agnarr” Takhmazov recorded lead guitars. Keyboards are by Ivan Popov.

Balfor is expected to enter the studio to record the full album later this fall. Having recently announced a lineup change that saw all the former members aside from founder and frontman Thorgeir leave the band, Balfor is set to play its first show with its new lineup on June 23rd at the Kilkim Zaibu Festival in Lithuania.

Balfor Reveals New Lineup, Working On Upcoming Album

Ukrainian black metal act Balfor previously announced a line up change that sees virtually the whole band departing, with only front man and guitarist Thorgeir remaining. Commenting on the reason for such a drastic change, Thorgeir said:

“We parted ways for a variety of reasons and we hadn’t actually worked together for a very long time. This decision was not an easy one, but it was a necessary one that took into account the needs and interests of all the band members, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the guys for all this time we worked together, it was a great experience! But sometimes a change is necessary if you want to move forward.”

With work having begun on the sophomore full-length album, Balfor’s new line up, which consists of Thorgeir on vocals and guitars, Warider on guitars and backing vocals, Athamas on bass and vocals and Khaoth on drums, marks a new stage in the band’s development, one that Thorgeir is very positive about.

“We have been rehearsing together since the beginning of the year, and I am now very sure that the new line up works just as well, if not better, than the previous incarnation of Balfor, because new blood has brought a fresh perspective to the band’s music and a lot of enthusiasm. Warider, the new guitarist, is quite young, but hugely promising, whilst Khaoth has honed his considerable drumming skills with Dark Metallers Khors. Athamas brings with him not only the experience he has gained with bands like Deferum Sacrum and Raventale, but he is also a great vocalist, which is able to give an additional perspective to the Balfor sound.”

This decision was not easy, but it was necessary and considers the interests of all band members. Sometimes changes are necessary if you want to bring a new horizon. I want to thank the guys for all this time we worked together, it was great!
