After almost three years of silence Swedes Netherbird return with their newest release, single “Windwards” that precedes the band’s upcoming October 2016 album "The Grander Voyage" on Black Lodge Records.
Combining the trademark Netherbird ferocity with almost cinematic epic grandeur, the up-tempo title track has also been chosen for the first video in support of the new album. Single tracklist is completed by a bonus track "Sculptors and Spectres" that does not appear on the actual album and is fully exclusive to this release.
Staying true to their roots in the 90’s Black and Death Metal underground, the band is branching out into the new soundscapes, such as Doom and even Post Metal influences. This record features Fredrik Widigs (Marduk, Nordjevel, ex-Demonical) on drums, who makes a brilliant performance showcasing his diversity and impeccable skill. Authentic production creates increased sound clarity and the lack of trigging adds a lot of presence to the experience.
All songs were Mastered by Sverker Widgren, a renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tide, IXXI, Diabolical etc). This is the first step to "The Grander Voyage". Cover artwork: J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851) by permission from Tate Images
