WIND ROSE are back with another visual to their epic, story-filled and critically acclaimed album Wintersaga, releasing the official music video for “We Were Warriors” today via Napalm Records! “We Were Warriors” is a follow-up to their popular first singles, “Diggy Diggy Hole” and “Drunken Dwarves”, which together racked up well over 20 million views on YouTube! In “We Were Warriors”, WIND ROSE take the viewer on an adventurous hunt for gold through dark ruins and caves, passing old relics from a morbid past.
WIND ROSE on “We Were Warriors”: “‘We Were Warriors’ is a song about the Dwarves fallen in battle and their eternal rest inside the great halls of stone. A strong theme needed strong music, so we came up with one of the most astonishing songs we have ever composed: powerful riffs, massive orchestrations and epic choirs. We could not imagine a better epilogue for our latest album Wintersaga.”
“We don`t write songs, we smith them against the anvil.” And that`s WIND ROSE in a nutshell! 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!
