Power-folk metallers VEXILLUM have released a video for the song ‘Sons of a Wolf’, taken from their new album ‘When Good Men Go to War’ – out on April 23 on Scarlet Records.
This is how the band commented: “A song that speaks of strength, descendant and heritage. Aggressive verses and a powerful refrain tell about a father through the eyes of his son; all the perceptions, feelings, teachings and fears complete a relationship made of light and shadows and describes its growth. Every note celebrates the wolfpack leader as the guide of his pack, his choices, sacrifices and his bets to allow young wolves to face life on their own.”
Power-folk metallers VEXILLUM have released a visualizer for the song ‘When a Good Man Goes to War’, the first single taken from their new album ‘When Good Men Go to War’ – out on April 23 on Scarlet Records.
This is how the band commented: “This song is about an almost unknown force, a force so rare and frightening to see that, when unleashed, is not possible to describe the scenario that lies ahead. That disruptive, uncontrollable force that comes from breaking a balance. It’s easy to predict the reaction of an evil man, but not what can happen if a man who has always been good goes into battle and puts aside all the rules that define him. As at sea, everything can change in an instant, from calm to raging storm. Everything could go wrong if you don’t respect the forces that unleashed it.”
Enriched by the epic cover artwork by Andrea Butera, ‘WGMGTW’ is a record with more aggressive and powerful sounds – a crucial evolution in Vexillum’s style and aesthetic, obviously tinged with that folk atmosphere that has always distinguished the band.
Scarlet Records has signed a multi-album deal with power/folk metal band VEXILLUM. The band is going to release their next chapter in its influential career in this Spring.
Vexillum formed in 2004 in Pisa, Italy and released the first full-length album ‘The Wandering Notes’ a few years later, in 2011, followed by ‘The Bivouac’ shortly after, in 2012. The band was able to attract a large following since their inception, and toured extensively with the likes of Rhapsody of Fire, Vision of Atlantis, Orden Ogan and Freedom Call to name a few.
In 2015 Vexillum released their most ambitious project until then, the metal opera ‘Unum’, that features some very special guests such as Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian), Chris Bay (Freedom Call) and Mark Boals among others. The band promoted the album by touring with Eluveitie, Skálmöld and Freedom Call and got them to share European stages with DGM, Iron Savior, Finsterforst and many more.
With a solid line-up and renewed sound and strong image, Vexillum are proud to bring to light in 2021 to a thundering and thrilling new album.
Italian Power Folk Metallers VEXILLUM have released a new Official Video “The Jester – Over The Clouds”, featuring Chris Bay from FREEDOM CALL. The song is taken from the band’s new album “Unum”, released in 2014. Check it out below.
