"Elegy" out on Prophecy Productions July 20th!

It's finally here! Prophecy Productions will release our third full-length album "ELEGY" on July 20th!
The band has been carefully plotting a follow up to 2013's "A Portrait Painted By The Sun" and the next chapter in our musical journey falls perfectly in conjunction with the bands 10th birthday. We have come a long way from their 2010 debut, "Wanderlust", by embracing broader instrumentation and focusing more on structure. 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 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. Musically it's a blend of many different genres that we've come to enjoy... It's a very beautiful sounding album; listening to it is very therapeutic for me, and I hope others can find some degree of solace in it as well." 
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.

Gallery of Sun and Stars

As of today (and just in time for Winter solstice!), we have commenced recording of our 2nd album, which is tentatively entitled "Gallery of Sun and Stars". The album is a musical exploration of the cycles of nature, mainly the diurnal cycle of day and night- represented by the sun and stars. But the album also focuses on the cycle of seasons and the feelings that arise from the change of seasons, and represents the life-death cycle of all living beings. We are very excited to embark on this journey, and when it is complete, we hope that you will enjoy our creation.
