Vandr – Farmaðr – Wanderer Ov Bitter Earth and Broken Stones [Single]

vandr – farmaðr – wanderer ov bitter earth and broken stones [single]

Info

UK Black/Death Metal band Vandr are know for their lyrical concepts revolving around both Norse and Green mythology. However, for their brand new single, ‘Farmaðr – Wanderer Ov Bitter Earth and Broken Stones’, which is to be on a brand new album due out towards the end of the year, Vandr have objected for subject matter a little closer to home. The impressive artwork is an artists interpretation of a ridged mountain called the Dragons Back in the Peak District in Derbyshire, and the song itself speaks of ancient gods and spirits wreaking vengeance on humanity because of our decadence and disrespect to the earth.

It’s a fitting start, a peal of thunder, the wind bellowing and the rain pouring, followed by the sound of a horn and then straight into intoxicating guitar leads, intense and endearing, as well as demonic growls and secondary deathlier growling vocals further in. Wonderful atmospheric synth melodies, clean monastic chanted vocals and an ever present sturdy backline of punishing drums and rumbling bass make up the rest, but it’s the haunting harmonies, subtle softer interludes and mesmeric rhythms that have me truly excited for the new Vandr album.
