"Winter’s Wake Releases The Title Track Of Their Upcoming EP!"

“Are you ready to hear some Viking Metal from New York City? Is that even possible? Yes, in the famous concrete jungle, Winter’s Wake is bringing the sound famously brought from Europe to this city, and they do it damn well. I’ve seen them twice over the past few months, and these guys and gal are legit. This six-piece band, not only brings it live, but they have a story and a purpose, and they are determined to bring it to anyone and everyone with open ears. They will soon be releasing their “Awake” EP, and the title track is streaming online today! Here’s what they said on the track: “In days immemorial, the demon Chris unveiled to the Son of the Northern Sky the ancient sentience of the forest, a revelation too powerful for the comprehension of mere mortals, leaving his mind a shattered shell. But now, he has awoken, raising with him a chorus of demons and spirits, calling for the end of Winter, and for Winter’s Wake. This is their song: Awake!” - Metal Mark

"Among Creatures: 2 Nights of Huntress"

“The next band, Winter’s Wake, is one that I have wanted to catch for a while now but kept missing out on. A Viking/folk metal act from New York, they play suitably epic sounding material that is further elevated by the use of an electric violin. Not in a gimmicky way, but rather showcasing some nice interplay between the violin and the guitarwork. The violin adds some depth and majesty to the already entertaining riffwork that maintains a serious yet bombastic approach. An energertic and enjoyable set, as well as an easy recommendation for those into the folk metal scene (particularly those into rising acts like Aether Realm or Wilderun), these guys (and gal) seem to have found a sound that is primed for a larger market. A new EP is in the works, so be on the lookout.” - Dead Rhetoric


Still working on that hot first release.



Winter's Wake is a four piece Viking Metal band based in New York City. We blend extreme metal passages with beautifully crafted folk and orchestral pieces. We have released one EP, titled "Yellow Moon", and we are currently recording new music to be released in 2017. We have performed with bands such as Tengger Cavalry, Anvil, The Murder Junkies, and Abigail Williams.
