CD/DVD Releases: Swedish Folk Metallers Falconer Launch Second Single Off ''Armod''...

... Exclusively Via German Metal Hammer!

Swedish folk metallers Falconer have launched their second single "O, Tysta Ensamhet," taken off their brand new studio album Armod, via German Metal Hammer.

Falconer will release their seventh studio album, Armod on June 7th via Metal Blade Records in North America!

Comments Falconer guitarist Stefan Weinerhall: "The album is embracing the Swedish folk music to a greater extent than before, making it sound slightly more down to earth. The music spans from acoustic songs with cello, flute and fiddle to songs with blast beats and really heavy riffing. As said before this is a 'one-time-only' album and does not define the future sound of Falconer, but it was about time to pay full notice to the influence that has always made us different. Now we have that out of our system!"

Armod was once again recorded at King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque's Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden, during December and January.

1. Svarta Änkan
2. Dimmornas Drottning
3. Griftefrid

Not only for this reason, but my first thought at seeing the man pictured was 'it's the most interesting man in the world!' from the US Dos Equis beer commercials (though at closer inspection, not really, but see if you agree). For those outside the US or who don't know what/whom I mean, go to dosequis.com. As it happens, I don't always drink beer, but when I do... it's (sometimes) Dos Equis... -ed.]
