Wingspell is a musical project creating "Renaissance Gothic" songs. Inspired by the progressive rock of Blackmore's Night, the haunting neo-classical of Dead Can Dance and Angels of Venice, and the driving symphonic metal of Within Temptation, the process is from an eternal fascination with both ancient and modern music-making. Lyrically the focus is on love, nature, and loss.
Currently there are two very badly produced lofi demo songs up, featuring the hauntingly beautiful vocals of Chagall Sierra.
Starting in January 2016 this project will again be under active focus. (The studio quality is already much better this time around!) Sign up to the mailing list to be notified when the GOOD stuff is released.
Our Musical Goal: "When the Faerie and Angelic realms collide, and otherworldly music is born of a union both blessed and damned: this is the resulting mystic birth. Haunting love songs - classic, modern covers, and originals."
Sounds Like: Ethereal soprano vocals, shimmering pads, distorted guitar, rocking drum beats!
