about

"Elegy" is the third full length from Prophecy Productions atmospheric black metal stalwarts Finnr's Cane. The Canadian trio has been carefully plotting a follow up to 2013's "A Portrait Painted By The Sun" and the next chapter in their musical journey falls perfectly in conjunction with the bands 10th birthday. The band have come a long way from their 2010 debut, "Wanderlust", by embracing broader instrumentation and focusing more on structure. The use of cello instead of bass guitar in particular makes this band unique since its inception though. With themes of urban desolation, loss and grieving, personal struggle, the rebirth of the natural world, the quiet hours of the early morning, and the passage of time, "Elegy" is the logical next step for Finnr's Cane.

In the words of founding member, The Bard: "Our vision is always to create the kind of music that we want to hear. The music on 'Elegy' places a lot of emphasis on emotion, and there is a sad yet uplifting feel to much of it. The sound is lush and atmospheric. Listening to the album is very therapeutic for me, and I hope others can find some degree of solace in it as well." Finnr's Cane have unearthed something here that takes the listener on an ethereal odyssey. The darkly progressive music of 'Elegy' embraces all that the band has refined over the past decade.

Drummer The Peasant tells us "The songs on 'Elegy' are more structured than those from our previous two albums. While the foundation of the music is still rooted in traditional metal, minimalism, and improvisation, with this release we focused more heavily on dynamics and atmosphere. The final product is a musical experience that can set your mind adrift." With this taken into consideration, prepare to go forth on an epic adventure from the opening chords of "Willow" all the way through to the poetic send off of "A Sky Of Violet And Pearl". "Elegy" proves once more that there is much more to Finnr's Cane than meets the eye.

about

Finnr's Cane

In 2010, the canadian band released their atmospheric debut album "Wanderlust," a minor masterpiece at the intersection of traditional, grim Black Metal and sublime Post Rock. In their intuitive, epic tracks, these musicians – who replace the bass guitar completely with a cello – intertwine bitter-cold riffs with gorgeous melodies, Black Metal frenzy with ambient-like atmospheric rock. ... more
