We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Winterhymn’s new music video for their song “Dream of Might” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest album Blood & Shadow, available now through SoundAge Productions.
The band comments: “Winterhymn (Cincinnati, OH) is thrilled to bring you a music video for our song ‘Dream of Might,’ off 2016’s Blood and Shadow (SoundAge Productions). We hope existing Winter Warriors enjoy, and also inspire new listeners to check us out!”
Winterhymn weaves soaring, epic, majestic progressive pagan folk metal elements with haunting violin and symphonic melodies. No less than six musicians make up the act known as Winterhymn and at one point or another each adds meaningful contributions to the mix. Many of the tracks on Blood & Shadow actually sound like they could have come from traditional old Celtic, Scandinavian folk songs, updated by the band and made into heavy metal anthems for the new age. The guitar work here is of note , the leads are stellar, and the riffing is top-notch, adding a refined prog-metal touch without compromising the ancient feeling and folky vibe of the overall album.
Blood & Shadow was tracked by Audiogrotto (drums) and Sam Curtis, and is mixed and mastered by André Hofmann (Wolfchant, Varg, Nothgard). The artwork for the album was created by Vasilis Zikos (Mael Mordha) and reflects a scene from Winterhymn’s personal mythos, which the album is entirely based upon.
