Wind Rose Wintersaga cover
Wind Rose is releasing their fourth album “Wintersaga” on September 27th, 2019, via Napalm Records, including the viral smash single “Diggy Diggy Hole”. After their breakthrough album “Stonehymn”, appearances at major festivals as Bloodstock Open Air and successful tours with bands like Finntroll, Wintersun, Ensiferum and Eluveitie, Wind Rose are now ready to continue their journey through mountains, ice and snow! The Dwarven army is now stronger than ever and so will be the next album. The Dwarf and his army are coming and with them a new wave of folk power metal!

Wind Rose on “Wintersaga”:
“Dwarves from all around the world, this September we will gather our axes and hammers once again to retake what belongs to us. Hear the call of the last moon of autumn, feel the approaching shiver of Durin’s Day, we will rewrite the books with a new story that begins with the "Wintersaga"”.

The album is available for pre-order here.

“We don’t write songs, we smith them against the anvil”. And that’s power metallers Wind Rose in a nutshell! The five-piece that started out in Pisa, Italy in 2009 is no secret to genre connoisseurs thanks to three well-received albums and tours with Wintersun, Ensiferum and many more. But now their big moment in the spotlight has come – Wind Rose are ready for the final breakthrough with “Wintersaga”! They have perfected their mixture of heroic steel and folky, mead-drenched anthems in the meantime: party tunes don’t get better than “Drunken dwarves”. Seriously. Counterbalance arrives in shape of epic power metal anthems like “The Art of War” or “We Were Warriors”, carefully treading the fine line between neck-breaking riffing and dramatic orchestration. A highly entertaining and unforgettable ride over mountains, snow and ice!
