The Portugese Epic/Folk Metallers from GWYDION have revealed today all details from their upcoming album. Being around in the music-scene as a band since 1995, GWYDION is ready to enter a new era which kicks off with the album”VETERAN” with a release date set for November 22, 2013 !
Vocalist Rúben Almeida about “VETERAN”: “Fans will experience a slightly different musical-style, as the music is much more epic and “metal” than folk compared to the previous release. Since the beginning of the band, we had a very influential epic component in the songs, so naturally when we created this new album, we decided to have a strong mixture of heavy metal riffs and epic/folk songs. The new album is a story of a warrior since his birth through his training, conquests and defeats with relevance to the History of Portugal.”
The band is truly entering a new era, as their previous albums were released through a label, but considering the current state of the music industry, the band decided it was time to become an independent band. therefore, a fundraising campaign is running over their website www.gwydion.org, where fans can pre-order the album and other other great additional packages !
