Italy’s Wind Rose is back with their third album of epic tales set to symphonic metal.  Incredible voices and complex arrangements, make this a symphonic folk metal album not to miss.

Since 2009, Wind Rose, from Pisa, Italy have been releasing their take on symphonic metal.  The first ep from the band was released in 2010 and followed up in 2012 with their debut full length Shadows over Lothadruin.  In 2013 they toured Europe supporting Wintersun, Finntroll, and Epica and followed that up being part of folk-metal legends Eluveitie’s Origins European Tour, exposing their sound to even wider audiences.  Later that year the band released their second full length Wardens of the West Wind and supported Ensiferum on their One Man Army European tour.  2017 has seen the band sign with Inner Wound Recordings and release their third album Stonehymn.

As one might expect, the album opens with an instrumental that sets the tone for the album.  In this case, it’s folk, symphonic metal with a bit of Celtic feel to it.  “Distant Battlefields” predictably blends right into the first real track on the album “Dance of Fire”.  The first thing one can’t help but notice is the deep, full, gang vocals that sound as if there was a large chorus.  Unfortunately, the music is a bit buried in the mix behind the vocals and keyboards as there is some good support from the drums and guitars to help carry the songs along.  As the song progresses, the listener will also notice they approach epic in terms of length as well with most over six minutes long.
