ETERNAL WINTER is currently hard at work in the studio completing their upcoming 2nd full-length album, Archaic Lore Enshrined: Songs of Savage Swords & Dark Mysticism.
Band leader, guitarist / vocalist & songwriter, Matthew Knight has checked in with the following comment: We are happy to present a rare, alternate version of The Curse of Baron Sengir. This song will be featured on the upcoming Eternal Winter album, “Archaic Lore Enshrined: Savage Swords & Dark Mysticism”. The version featured here is a rawer mix than that which will appear on the album. There are some different vocal takes presented here, and also a completely different drum performance. Thematically, the song is based on some of the lore surrounding an early Magic: The Gathering tale called Homelands. This story features an aristocratic vampire lord called the Baron Sengir who is the leader of a strange family of ghoulish fiends, all whom reside in a dark castle and spread terror across the land. When deciding on concepts for this album, I thought of the Baron and suddenly became inspired to write a song about him and the events that took place in the Homelands story. I hope all will enjoy this alternate version of it
