Moss Of Moonlight ‘Winterwheel’ Out Now
Blackened folk metal duo Moss Of Moonlight has today released their new album ‘Winterwheel’.
‘Winterwheel’ follows the highly acclaimed debut ‘Seed’, a concept album about a band of Pacific North Western rebels that rise up and create the Republic of Cascadia. ‘Winterwheel’ digs deeper into the earth; a 45 minute trance into the otherworld’s. Using Anglo-Saxon chanting, haunting female vocals, visceral growls, and a giant atmosphere, Moss of Moonlight has put ancient Pagan ritual into song. It’s an album of Anglo Saxon gods and primal Paganism and as the band says, “it reaches far beyond ‘Seed’, into colder and darker territories.”
“Winterwheel is a ritual put to song. It embraces the turning of the seasons, and the necessary, vicious loop of birth and death” states Jenn Grunigen. “Each song delves into the nature of a different Anglo Saxon god or goddess, and is steeped in the old, cyclic roads of our Pagan ancestors, as well as the very language of the Anglo Saxons. With this wisdom and craft, we made new rites–in other words, Winterwheel, this sacrifice to the gods, the cosmos. With each play, the ritual is brought to life once more, and anyone willing to listen is a participant in the offering.”
