About this album

“Songs of Moors & Misty Fields” is the second album by the German band Empyrium, released in 1997.

Elaborating on their previous full-length, “A Wintersunset…” released a year before, Empyrium delve into a more sophisticated intricacy of what is sometimes called “”, offering a complicated mix of percussion, flutes, bass guitars and synths, together with its will-be trademark deep baritone male vocals performed by Schwadorf himself (who also plays virtually all the instrument parties, except for keyboards).

The album contains some of Empyrium’s longest tracks (e.g. track 3), presenting a more epic-like musical texture. By many the album is deemed as a true masterpiece of melancholic, dramatical metal.

“Songs of Moors & Misty Fields” is the last metal album by Empyrium. Their following two albums, “Where at Night the Wood Grouse Plays” (1999) and “Weiland” (2002), are purely acoustic.

Markus Stock - vocals, drums, guitars, bass
Andreas Bach - synthesizer
Nadine Moelter - flutes, cello
