The mesmerizing and unique project of Winterfyllet’s guitarist Dan Capp, Wolcensmen, is out with the new single “The Swans of Gar’s Edge” today! This is the third single off Wolcensmen’s sophomore album “Fire in the White Stone”, released via Indie Recordings on Sep 20th. The album has been critically acclaimed as “epic” and “one of the best folk-metal albums of the year”. Enjoy the piece of this magnificent creation – listen to the single HERE!
Dan Capp of Wolcensmen has commented: “The Swans of Gar’s Edge is one of the album’s more otherworldly songs – beginning with a sense of fragility, washed up and alone on unfamiliar frozen shores; Then building to a climax of spiritual realisation. The themes of this song are based on a dream I had, so the feel of the song is intentionally dreamlike.”
‘Fire in the White Stone’ is a timeless tale of mystery and destiny, in the spirit of Tolkien, Wagner and the Grail mythos (influences which Dan wears plainly on his sleeve). A hapless young man breaks away from home and flees into the wild, forsaking companionship and comfort. He is subjected to a stream of extraordinary happenings, encountering among other things 1 mysterious old man, 2 unusual swans, 3 ghostly maidens and 4 dwarf-like beings. Against this otherworldly backdrop, Wolcensmen’s music and lyrics convey the emotions and atmospheres of a multi-layered story.
