Mythological Dark Folk from England!
Following the success of the debut album ‘Songs from the Fyrgen’ (reissued in 2018 by Indie Recordings), Wolcensmen is back with the highly anticipated sophomore full-length, ‘Fire in the White Stone’. 11 brand new dark folk hymns of a mythological nature.
For this new offering, no effort was spared. The project’s mastermind, Dan Capp (also of Winterfylleth), forged a story, crossing traditional archetypes with his own philosophical explorations, and then set about composing a concept album using new and archived musical ideas. To fully realise his folk-tale, Dan then wrote a 12,000 word short-story – his first, to accompany the music and making this an elaborate, unique release.
‘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.
