Winter - Into Darkness

Posted on Thursday, April 28, 2011

Winter seems to be a sludge-Death Metal band. I think that makes them, if nothing else, one of a kind. They play very slowly, for the most part, but occasionally speed up to slow. Sometimes they even sound a bit Industrial. The vocals are always slow and are best described as Death. The seven songs on this album are at best scary: as in “Eternal Frost,” which is okay; and at worst boring, as with the first track “Oppression, Freedom, Oppression (Reprise).” Into Darkness is a weird album and I imagine it would take quite some getting used to, which is bad. I suppose this is what Winter wanted to sound like. I can’t really bring myself to recommend this, but it is different. I just don’t happen to like it.

{Relapse later re-released this album, and the band then put out an EP before calling it a day.}
