Falconer was born out of the ashes of Mithotyn, who split-up in 1999. After disbanding, one of Mithotyn‘s founding members – Stefan Weinerhall (guitar) – had a demo for a solo project, which eventually led to the creation of the folk power metal group Falconer.
Stefan comments: “Finally, we got the chance to incorporate some keyed fiddle and bagpipe into the music – something that has always been a wish from us, just to get that extra medieval and folky feel to it. In that time, we also wrote the most intense ballad ever, which turned out to be ‘Rejoice The Adorned’ – only featuring piano, keys and strings.”
Mixed and mastered by Andy LaRocque, From A Dying Ember was also recorded at LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studio. Stefan concludes: “To sum the album up, we can say that ‘From A Dying Ember‘ has some things that really stand out from a usual Falconer album. A lot of things happening and more elements to the music than ever before!”
