2017 Spinefarm Reissue
Formed in 2007 with the intention of honoring England's proud ancestral heritage and rich national culture, Winterfylleth (comprised of members culled from the UK's most devastating doom contingent Atavist) set a solidified mission statement to bring awareness to England's historical stories, folklore, landscapes and ancestral past through their folk-influenced vitriolic black metal. Coining the term English Heritage Black Metal (EHBM), Winterfylleth (which translates into ‘Winter Full Moon' from the Olde English language) represents the first full moon in October as well as the Anglo-Saxon festival of the arrival of winter.
2012's darkly romantic The Threnody of Triumph is the band's third full-length effort recorded in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard). Vocalist/guitarist C. Naughton explains, "The Threnody Of Triumph is a virulent and passionate album that represents the Winterfylleth of 2012. It represents a continual progression of the band and is a document to our determination to push ourselves further than we have before. On this album we celebrate the lives of those ones lost by contrasting the darkness of loss with the joy of celebrating their memories through the medium of a Threnody; a deathly ode to the memory of ones lost."
