Swedish folk power metal quintet, Falconer, released their acclaimed new recording, Black Moon Rising, on June 10th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. The new album, the band’s eighth to date, contains 11 original songs led by the soaring opener and lead single, “Locust Swarm.” Rather than bore you with other facts, we managed to score some time with guitarist Jimmy Hedlund who, in discussing some of his gear, helped us to better understand how the album came together.

Swedish folk metal forerunners Falconer return to glory with their new album Black Moon Rising, which is scheduled to be released the June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK, and June 10th in North America! The first single to be released from the album, “Locust Swarm,” is streaming now via YouTube – listen below!

Starting today Metal Injection is hosting the worldwide premiere of “By The Roses Grave” from Swedish folk metallers Falconer. “By The Roses Grave” (Vid Rosornas Grav) is taken off the bands brand new studio album ‘Armod’, which features 11 songs sung completely in Swedish and was released earlier this month via Metal Blade Records.
