On January 7th, 2022, Wilderun will release their new full-length album, Epigone. If you’re not familiar with the band, you’ll want to become acquainted quickly. Very skilled musicians in their own right, their 2019 album Veil Of Imagination was a critical favorite that helped establish the band as one of progressive + folk metal’s most exciting new bands. Except, well, for the fact that they’re not exactly new – two previous albums in 2012 and 2015 helped set up what’s become an exciting evolution for the band.
Now, the band has emerged wit “Passenger”, an almost ten minute long epic song that leads off their upcoming new record. Suffice it to say that it delivers in every way, from songwriting to composition, so give it a spin below.
“We are very proud to present our 4th studio album ‘Epigone’ as our first true release on Century Media. This has been an album in the making for many years, so it’s a relief and a pleasure to finally get it out there. We’ve learned a lot over the past 3 records, and applying that knowledge to these particular songs has been a very rewarding challenge,” says Wilderun about the new release.
