Vesperian Sorrow’s “Stormwinds of Ages” Out Now

May 14th, 2012

April 24, 2012 was the day on which Stormwinds of Ages from Austin, TX’s epic extreme metal act VESPERIAN SORROW hit the earth like a meteorite. Released in partnership with The Path Less Traveled Records, Stormwinds of Ages evokes the darkest depths of searing mortal tragedy juxtaposed with soaring heights of orchestrated, atmospheric melody against a blackened backdrop of neoclassical death metal brutality. But is is VESPERIAN SORROW’s undeniably passionate songwriting that has always them apart from the pack, a quality no more apparent than on Stormwinds of Ages. As if that weren’t enough, the album also features guest appearances from Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys/Watchtower/Broken Teeth), Erika Tandy (Autumn Tears/Ignitor), Carl August Tidemann (Winds/Arcturus) and Jon Zig (Sarcolytic/Images of Violence)! This is VESPERIAN SORROW at its most futuristically medieval and neoclassically barbaric.
