The Skinny: Atmospheric metal outfit Wayfarer will release their debut album, Children of the Iron Age, via Prosthetic Records on November 24th. The album – which features epic, blackened atmospherics interwoven with entrancing acoustic passages and driving, powerful post-metal soundscapes – was recorded at Colorado’s Flatline Studios with Shane Howard while being mastered by Dave Otero (Cattle Decaptiation, Cobalt). In anticipation of its release, the quartet – who have been described as a cross between Agalloch and Amon Amarth – have unveiled the previously unreleased track “Cities Built on Conquered Ground” online.
All digital pre-orders include instant downloads of both “A Place Among Stars” and the album’s title track. Children of the Iron Age is also being offered for pre-order on digipak CD and gatefold double LP (including a download card and an exclusive bonus track) via THIS LINK.
