Wind Rose reveals details for the upcoming new release ”Wintersaga” !

Wind Rose is releasing their fourth album “Wintersaga” on September 27th via Napalm Records. It includes the viral smashing song “Diggy Diggy Hole”.
After their breakthrough album “Stonehymn,” appearances at major festivals as Bloodstock Open Air and successful tours with bands like Finntroll, Wintersun, Ensiferum and Eluveitie. Wind Rose are now ready to continue their journey through mountains, ice and snow! The Dwarven army is now stronger than ever and so will be the next album. The Dwarf and his army are coming and with them a new wave of folk power metal!
The band states this about the upcoming new release:
“Dwarves from all around the world, this September we will gather our axes and hammers once again to retake what belongs to us. Hear the call of the last moon of autumn, feel the approaching shiver of Durin’s Day, we will rewrite the books with a new story that begins with the ‘Wintersaga. We don`t write songs, we smith them against the anvil.“
Track-list:
1. Of Iron and Gold
2. Wintersaga
3. Drunken Dwarves
4. Diggy Diggy Hole
5. Mine Mine Mine!
6. The Art of War
7. There and Back Again
8. The King Under the Mountain
9. We Were Warriors
“Wintersaga” will be available in the following formats:
Regular Jewel Case Edition
1 LP Gatefold (black)
1 LP Gatefold (gold) Limited to 200 copies
Jewel Case & Shirt Bundle
1LP Gatefold (black) & Shirt Bundle
Wooden Deluxe Box: CD, flag & pendant & 7” Single – Limited to 300 copies world-wide
The five-piece that started out in Pisa, Italy in 2009 is no secret to genre connoisseurs thanks to three well-received albums and tours with Wintersun, Ensiferum and many more.
But now their big moment in the spotlight has come. Wind Rose are ready for the final breakthrough with “Wintersaga!” They have perfected their mixture of heroic steel and folky, mead-drenched anthems in the meantime: party tunes don`t get better than “Drunken dwarves”. Seriously. Counterbalance arrives in shape of epic power metal anthems like “The Art Of War” or “We Were Warriors”, carefully treading the fine line between neck-breaking riffing and dramatic orchestration. A highly entertaining and unforgettable ride over mountains, snow and ice!
