Formed with the intention to honour England’s ancestral Anglo-Saxon past, WINTERFYLLETH (comprised of members culled from the UK’s most devastating doom contingent ATAVIST and like-minded UK comrades WODENSTHRONE) have set a solidified mission statement to bring awareness and re-ignite and remind people of England’s historical roots 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 in the olde English language) represents the month of October (hence the coinciding release date) and also represents the Anglo-Saxon festival of the arrival of winter. With their “Rise Of The Winter Full Moon” demo, which was done in a very limited run but generated quite a reputable response, said demo displayed a fierce focused vision on what Winterfylleth want to achieve through their music, and with their “Ghost Of Heritage” debut, this vision becomes even more solidified and fleshed out.  
 
By combining vicious yet moody folk inspired black metal that harkens back to the early days of ENSLAVED and old-school ULVER, Winterfylleth also conjure feelings and moods that reflect with the likes of acts such as DRUDKH, HATE FOREST, and ISENGARD respectively while at the same time, forge new ground to herald a new movement in UK black metal and strengthen its scene at the same time.  
 
With the music conjuring moods and emotions that range from vicious and violent to melodic and elegant, “The Ghost Of Heritage” will indeed signal a new shift for the underground UK black metal scene while at the same time, presenting a solid observation that will fit nicely within the paradigm of the folk black metal movement as Winterfylleth will be considered one of the distinct and special acts of said movement respectively.  
 
Lyrically, the band delve into tales of England’s archaic history, re-counting certain events, battles, and even being inspired by certain sites and scenery that grace the countryside of England and have played an integral part in England’s history.  
 
Winterfylleth are: Chris Naughton (guitar/bass/backing vocals), Simon Lucas (drums/backing vocals), Richard Brass (vocals/guitar/backing vocals)
