Official press release: Profound Lore is excited to announce their cooperation with Denver, Colorado-based black metal outfit Wayfarer for their newly completed third LP, World's Blood, this May. World's Blood is black metal of the American West. Wayfarer recorded the album in the winter of early 2018 at The Thousand Caves in New York under the watchful production of Colin Marston. A reflection of the Rocky Mountains and high plains of their native Colorado, the band tells a story that is uniquely American. Drawing influence as much from the dusty, dark Americana of the "Denver sound" and the scores of epic Westerns as they do the fury and melody of black metal, Wayfarer brings something original to the table with a sound that is at once aggressive and honest. The album paints a hallucinatory picture of the western frontier, and the haunting presence of the blood in the soils from a culture lost to time. Offers Wayfarer's Shane McCarthy, "We feel like we are in the right home for the band, and that we have with this record something that is honest and uniquely American, as we are from the American West, and not Norway, and the music reflects that. Working with Colin Marston on the record I think gave us the best possible environment to bring it together." World's Blood marks Wayfarer's debut with Profound Lore Records, as they step into their own in the music underground with their strongest and most fully realized vision. With the LP's release in late spring of 2018, the year promises to see the band bring their forceful live show to stages across the world. Profound Lore will release World's Blood on May 25th, 2018.
