Finland's Fantasy Metal EVERFROST Shares Anime Inspired Video 'Winterider'





Since the release of debut album 'Blue Eyed Emotion', Finland's EVERFROST have been active on the stage and in the studio bringing listeners the follow-up their EP 'Appetite For Candlelight' and live DVD 'A Cold Night Out'. The band is now aiming to raise the bar from what an album experience is traditionally expected to be, with their second full length "Winterider" to be released via Rockshots Records on September 6th, 2019.

Before the album is officially released, the band have put together a new anime-inspired lyric video for the album's title track, which can be viewed here.



The band adds:

"Winterider launches the listener into the world of Everfrost once again for a new story. A brutal winter that came and never left is disrupting the peace in Everfrost, bringing panic and depressing times to the residents. The main characters fight against the cold and sorrow however in this defiant anthem, trying to enjoy their young adult life in a hidden city no one is allowed to leave from. The song features huge keyboard strings, catchy guitar riffs and an anime-esque chorus, not to forget guitar and keyboard solo dueling and powerful gang cries. The song is a 'get up and go' for anyone who needs it in hard times."

The lyric video follows their music video for their first single 'Cold Night Remedy', which can be viewed here.

EVERFROST's forthcoming album 'Winterider' features 10 songs of winter spiced melodic metal elevated to the extreme this time around! The tracklisting includes the band's first ballad, their fastest song to date and the first EVERFROST epic, clocking in at over 10 minutes.

The album is a unique undertaking for a metal/rock band, as it combines of a fully coherent manga comic and a conceptual album. The story features characters from their debut album 'Blue Eyed Emotion', and takes them on a desperate journey to survive a never-ending winter! This type of album has never been attempted before, and the band is pulling out all the stops to provide you with a truly unique experience in the world of comics and music!

Keyboardist Benji Connelly began the demo-process for 'Winterider' in the summer of 2017 following the single release 'Cold Night Remedy', which appears on the upcoming sophomore album. By March 2018, most of the songs and story manuscript had been finished, as was mentioned in an interview with Musicalypse after their taped show at The Circus, Helsinki. As of September last year, EVERFROST hit the studio and documented the entire 'making of' process for "Winterider", beginning with promo photoshoots lead by Tuonela Magazine's Laureline Tilkin. Making of "Winterider" album video here.

"Winterider" will be available in a Digipak Deluxe CD Edition with a 24-page booklet and includes a Manga Comic!

He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
