New Release: Ungfell - Es grauet

Rejoice, followers of alpine audio torment! The time has come to announce the details of the third Ungfell album. This concept album is called "Es grauet" and will be released on April 30th in various formats via Eisenwald. The glorious cover and the illustrations contained in the release were painted by the great Robbie C. Ward.

On their third full-length album, "Es grauet", Ungfell abducts the listeners on a sonic journey detailing moral ambivalence and treachery. Set in a seemingly idyllic rural village in pre-modern times, all is not as it seems. Tragedy strikes the town in the form of a horrific, grisly murder. Unfounded accusations lead the town further astray, while these occurrences of debauchery exceed the comprehension of the local inhabitants. Alas, evil lurks where you may least expect it... The story unfolds, accompanied by ravaging riffs and gripping songwriting that appropriately underline the complex, yet harrowing narrative. "Es grauet" shows Ungfell at their most ambitious and most audacious, featuring incredibly dynamic and warm production values, emphasizing atmosphere even more than previous releases and managing to compliment the story being told.
