CD released: Jun 17, 2016
Vinyl LP pressing. Denver, CO's atmospheric blackened metal band Wayfarer will release their sophomore album, Old Souls, in June 2016 viaProsthetic Records. Recorded at Flatline Audio with Shane Howard (Martriden, Khemmis) while being mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt), the album features seven tracks clocking in at almost 50 minutes long. The album's cover artwork, which can be seen featured above, was created by Colorado artist and knifesmith Adam Gersh. Wayfarer's debut album, Children of an Iron Age, was described as "a mesmerizing, unyielding arc of music" (Metal Storm) and was met with worldwide critical acclaim. Asked how Old Souls differs, guitarist and vocalist Shane McCarthy commented: "This record is a darker and much more focused effort from us. Writing the album was a very cohesive and involved process as a whole band this time around. It has moved further and further away from any particular genre trappings and stepped closer into what we feel our sound is; which is always shifting, always evolving. Life is too short to write music that already exists. We can't wait to get this out there. "
