Denver, Colorado-based black metal outfit Wayfarer is streaming the new song "The Dreaming Plain," which is available in the player above. The song appears on the band's new (and third) LP "World's Blood," which is out on May 25th via Profound Lore. Pre-order the album at this location.
Offers guitarist Shane McCarthy on the song: "It's kind of a dreamlike song, as the title suggests. It came together very naturally, and I think that's reflected. One of the more ambient moments of the record but also one of the more vicious overall. It's a song about bleeding hallucinations, so it should be heavy."
"World's Blood" is black metal of the American West. Wayfarer recorded the album in the winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston.
A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of native Colorado, the band tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the "Denver sound" and the scores of epic Westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal, Wayfater brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. The album paints a hallucinatory picture of the western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soils from a culture lost to time.
"World's Blood" marks Wayfarer's debut with Profound Lore Records, as the band steps into its own in the music underground with the strongest and most fully realized vision. With the LP's release in late spring of 2018, the year promises to see the band bring their forceful live show to stages across the world.
