Winterfylleth Re-Releasing Debut Full-Length "The Ghost of Heritage," Working On Third Album

Candlelight Records has issued the following announcement re-releasing “The Ghost of Heritage” by Winterfylleth:

“Candlelight proudly presents this special reissue of the rising English band’s 2008 debut album. Remastered by Colin Marston (Krallic, Atheist), ‘The Ghost Of Heritage’ has been completely repackaged and features two previously unavailable tracks.

“Combining vicious yet moody folk-inspired black metal that harkens back to the early days of Enslaved and old-school Ulver, the Manchester-based quartet is that unique combination of beauty and brimstone. Roadburn Fest 2011 alumni, the metallers are currently finishing up their third album anticipated for release later this year.”

Guitarist/vocalist Chris Naughton notes, “It’s really great for us to have our releases under one roof and available for our fans in North America to own. We are excited about this updated version of The Ghost Of Heritage which includes two additional songs recorded when we did the original album; it feels right to have the complete recording session all on one CD. We hope you agree.”

“The Ghost Of Heritage” hits stores on May 22nd and is available for pre-order at this location.
