Mam Tor, in the High Peak! Celtic whispers still haunt, This windswept land, Of long endured winters. The spirit of our land Will never die. The spirit of the mountain is strong. Mam Tor. Brithnoth: The Battle Of Maldon AD Then he ordered each of his warriors his horse to loose Then did Brithnoth begin his men to bestow - He rode up and counselled them - his soldiers he taught Then stood forth on the strand and sternly spake The messenger from the Sea men, delivered his tidings; Brithnoth made answer - his buckler he grasped, Brandished his slender spear - and spoke.
Bade he then to bear the shields, the warriors to go, So that they on the river's bank all stood. So stood firm the stout-hearted Warriors in the war - they did keenly strive Who with his point first should be able From fey men to win life. Warriors with weapons; They stood steadfast; Brithnoth stirred them! Thou messenger of the seamen, back with thy message. There stands here a good earl in the midst of his men, Who will this country ever defend, The kingdom of Aethelred, mine overlord, The folk and the ground - but they shall fall, Nor shall ye so softly carry off our riches.

Of course, there are other aspects of the aesthetics that make this record remarkably divergent from the supposedly decaying scene. The lyrics display loyal qualities to the Anglo-Saxon bloodline that dominates the British Isles.
Although I do not necessarily consider the nature of the lyrics to be important in the outcome of this record, it is always interesting to get some background information on a band and consider the influences of this piece.
Winterfylleth do however, despite displaying a difference in content to most black metal acts in the modern era, do serve up some nice traditional moments. Of course, despite the slow nature of some of the leads, the guitars do access fast tempos and these themselves are still, but not as quite accessible.
The slow churning nature of the instrumentation indicates the strength in the song structures. It does use double bass blast beats, it does use rasping vocals and it does use heavy distortion to display its proud stance, but it also uses melodic acoustics, clean vocals which come in different forms including a chanted style, which conjures imagery of British battalions conquering the European landscape, or displaying the beauty of the English landscapes in subtle soundscapes and varied tempos which, once again, distinguish it from the normal standards of the black metal genre.
The beauty of the acoustics, mixed in with a rather haunting atmospheric nature plagued by the distortion, warmed to by the interesting contrasts make this a uniquely terrifying, but unusually beautiful record. The interesting contrast between the sublime and the aggressive is another outstanding aspect of this record. An interesting take of black metal, given its interesting vibe and one for any fan of any sub-genre within black metal.
