Based on the name and style (Black/Folk) I was guessing Windfaerer was a European band but lo and behold they hail from New Jersey. Tenebrosum is their second full-length and the music it contains is of the epic Black Metal variety with some prominent violin that gives it that "folk" feel. Windfaerer focus on melody, which underlies the harsh, low in the mix vocals and ultra-fast drum beats. The violin plays some frenetic, almost savage lines which give Tenebrosum a bit of character that would otherwise be missing from the album as everything else is pretty much standard Black/Folk.

Not nearly as massive or engaging as bands like Summoning or Caladan Brood, Tenebrosum isn't bad either and if your tastes run in this direction you can probably find a lot of worse offerings than what Windfaerer has come up with.
