Italian Folk-Metal act Wind Rose are currently on the road with Ensiferum and Ex Deo, remaining dates are listed below. The band checked in with the following sad news:

We have been robbed tonight near Barcelona during our tour with Ensiferum. The thieves broke into our bus while we were asleep and stole our personal stuff (laptops, cellphones, credit cards etc…) and cash money for a total value of more than 2000€. We still have the essential things to do a show, so we will try to overcome the damage and do all the remaining shows.

If you want to support us just come see our concert and have fun with our music, and maybe buy some merchandise in case you enjoyed the show!

A video message from Francesco Cavalieri can be watched below.

Stonehymn hits you immediately with a dwarven hammer straight into the chest plate. Packing with gloomy rifts yet hopeful folk melodies, it floors you and lifts you at the same time.

The setting could easily be Lord of the Rings or Skyrim. Wind Rose return to the old days and establish themselves as iron clad dwarven bards, wandering the icy mountains somewhere in search of an inn, some mead and good entertainment, the latter which they provide themselves. Wind Rose have already played Bloodstock, UK 2017 and currently you can catch them on their Retaking of Erebor tour across Europe and as far out as Japan.

There are classical – opera undertones remnant of bands such as Nightwish which channel the vocals across realms. This is in fine balance with reliable heavy metal riffs that will not fail to satisfy the most avid metal heads. Every song on the album has an optimistic vibe and can provoke a sense of accomplishment in you just by listening to it. It could even potentially get you drinking more mead and having yourself a good time, maybe you will even dance. Continue reading »
