Following the success of their debut album, Songs from the Fyrgenreissued in 2018 by Indie Recordings, Wolcensmen – the side project of Winterfylleth guitarist Dan Capp – will release their anticipated new sophomore album, Fire in the White Stoneon 20 September 2019.

Fire in the White Stone will feature 11 brand new dark folk hymns of a mythological nature, inspired by the likes of Tolkien, Wagner and the Grail mythos.

For this new offering, no effort was spared. The project’s mastermind, Dan Capp, forged a story, crossing traditional archetypes with his own philosophical explorations, and then set about composing a concept album using new and archived musical ideas. To fully realise his folk-tale, Dan then wrote a 12,000 word short-story – his first, to accompany the music and making this an elaborate, unique release.

‘Fire in the White Stone’ is a timeless tale of mystery and destiny, in the spirit of Tolkien, Wagner and the Grail mythos (influences which Dan wears plainly on his sleeve). A hapless young man breaks away from home and flees into the wild, forsaking companionship and comfort. He is subjected to a stream of extraordinary happenings, encountering among other things 1 mysterious old man, 2 unusual swans, 3 ghostly maidens and 4 dwarf-like beings. Against this otherworldly backdrop, Wolcensmen’s music and lyrics convey the emotions and atmospheres of a multi-layered story.
