Finnish symphonic power metal band Everfrost’s second full length album ‘Winterider’ will be released via Rockshots Records on September 6th!
Winterider will be a unique undertaking for a metal/rock band, as it will be the combination between a fully coherent manga comic and a conceptual album. The story will feature characters from their debut album ‘Blue Eyed Emotion’
The album will feature 10 songs of Everfrost‘s winter spiced melodic metal elevated to the extreme this time around! The tracklisting will include the band’s first ballad, their fastest song to date and the first Everfrost epic, clocking in at over 10 minutes.
The album will be a unique undertaking for a metal/rock band, as it will be the combination of a fully coherent manga comic and a conceptual album.

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.
