Things You Might Have Missed 2014: Falconer – Black Moon Rising

Falconer‘s 2011 record Armod was not only my introduction to the band’s music, but to AMG as well. I don’t remember how I stumbled across our eponymous overlord’s review, but I’m glad I did… This year, Falconer released their follow-up to Armod in the form of Black Moon Rising, and I’m going to come full sphere by writing about it here on AMG.” Once beloved by AMG Himself, is Falconer still the adorable moppet it once was?

Falconer – Armod Review

Falconer – Armod Review

hate Falconer. Okay, that’s not really true, but I have never liked Falconer, let’s put it that way. I first got wind of these guys with the publication of their second album Chapters of a Vale Forlorn and I was very unimpressed. Since then I’ve heard a things here and there, and nothing convinced me away from my previous conviction. I didn’t think what I heard was particularly good, nor did I think it was particularly interesting. In spite of the fact that I’m a huge fan of guitarist Stefan Weinerhall and drummer Karsten Larsson’s previous project Mithotyn (an absolutely underrated band), the power metal tinged Falconer never did anything for me at all.

That is, until I heard Armod.
