Winterfylleth

British black metal is beginning to find itself, and this Manchester crew is already making its mark as one of the best, on the strength of albums such as their excellent debut, 2008's The Ghost Of Heritage. Musically there are plenty of Norse-isms to be found, though lyrically they are firmly in the Celtic/pagan camp, paying homage to their Anglo-Saxon heritage, much like another fine Brit band, Forefather An occasional soundalike is Primordial, though these guys are a shade closer to the Norwegian style and a bit more aggressive.

Recent album: The Reckoning Dawn, released on May 8, 2020.
