WORDS OF FAREWELL are one of the most talented Metal acts to
emerge from Germany within the last years. After the critically acclaimed ‘Immersion’ (2011) and ‘The Black Wild Yonder’ (2013), the band now returns with their third album, titled ‘A Quiet World’. Their sound has reached a new level here, which is caused by a refinement of the band’s unique and atmospheric melodic death/progressive mixture and the involvement of producer Eike Freese (Deep Purple, Callejon, Gamma Ray, Dark Age) who took care of mixing and mastering. ‘A Quiet World’” is a real treat for all fans of Insomnium, Dark Tranquillity and Omnium Gatherum.
The band formed in the German Ruhr District in early 2007. After four months of rehearsing, the 7-track EP ‘Ashes of the Coming Dawn’ was recorded and published in a quantity of 500 units.
In autumn 2008 the 4-track CD ‘From Now On…’ was pressed in limited numbers to be sent out to record labels and venues, sold at live concerts and additionally offered as free download. Furthermore, the second sampler of the ‘European Underground Extreme Metal Front’ featured the track ‘In Fiction’. From June to December 2010, the band entered Metallurgy Studios, Mönchengladbach, where the debut album ‘Immersion’ was produced. Taken from this production, the song ‘Sorae’ was uploaded to various internet platforms and spread the word about this outstanding young band. In late Summer 2011, WORDS OF FAREWELL signed with AFM Records and released ‘Immersion’ worldwide. Countless reviews from both national and international critiques awarded the album very high marks.
Bigger shows and festivals followed, e.g. as direct support for DARK TRANQUILLITY and SCAR SYMMETRY.
After achieving first success with ‘Immersion’, the band started working hard on the successor. From July to November 2013, WORDS OF FAREWELL produced their second studio album ‘The Black Wild Yonder’. After two critically acclaimed albums, the task of coming up with something even superior was mastered well by WORDS OF FAREWELL. The band took their time to work on every detail and managed to keep their trademarks while showing a development in every aspect of the game. ‘A Quiet World’ takes WORDS OF FAREWELL’s characteristic,atmospheric sound to a new level.
