Created in May 1999, the project initially started unnamed. Their self-titled debut album Falconer was released in March 2001. Since then, they've released seven other albums: Chapters from a Vale Forlorn (2002), The Sceptre of Deception (2003), Grime vs Grandeur (2005), Northwind (2006), Among Beggars and Thieves (2008), Armod (2011) and Black Moon Rising (2014). Vocalist Mathias Blad, who performed on the first two albums and on the third album as a guest vocalist on a few songs, returned for the recording process of the 5th album, Northwind. On albums The Sceptre of Deception and Grime vs Grandeur vocals were performed by Karl Kristoffer Göbel.

With the addition of the new singer, Falconer's music also changed and became faster and more aggressive. Many fans thought that with these two albums and a new singer's style FALCONER moved too far away from their folk influences, which was their trademark from the very beginning, so eventually the decision was made to have Mathias Blad back on vocals. Mathias' unique, melancholic, mid-range vocals, atypical for metal in general, was also one of the Falconer's trademarks that most fans considered to be irreplaceable. With Mathias back on vocals, their album Northwind (2006) also marked the return of more folk influenced music, in the vein of the first two albums. Current line-up: Mathias Blad - vocals, keyboards Stefan Weinerhall - guitars, keyboards Jimmy Hedlund - lead guitar Karsten Larsson - drums Magnus Linhardt - bass 2) Falconer is the studio name of Andy Falconer, an audio engineer from London (UK) who is best known for his work with The Orb from 1991 until 1994.

He has released one album (Falconer, 1993) and countless remixes. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
