Vintersorg is a band I would love to have been introduced to whilst I was still in the nascent years of my experience with the ‘extreme’ end of metal. This is because while it does have many of the key features of black metal such as heavily distorted, distant guitars, simple drumming often using double bass and blast beats, which was recorded on a drum machine and one guy taking of everything, mostly resulting in layered tracks. Also black metal uses exclusively harsh vocals. If you enjoy melodic metal in any shape or form, what you’ll find here is the latest release from what used to be one of folk metal’s most progressive and boundary defying endeavours, and is now master of melody. With the advent of Cosmic Genesis , the lyrics were now written and sung mostly in English, and now dealt with scientific ideas such as astronomy and cosmology , philosophies such as metaphysics, and other ideas such as astrology.

The band’s vocal elements have changed from album to album as well, starting out with low-pitched, powerful baritone singing, and gradually shifting towards softer, higher-pitched delivery with more use of harmony and layering with black metal vocals. It may seem crazy to think an album could use elements of Black Metal, progressive rock, folk music and avant-garde but we are prog fans! Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards, Vintersogr.


There is also a level of musicianship on this album. Through the fairly typical melodies, drums and guitar parts, it usually comes as a big surprise to hear them drop a prog rock keyboard solo in the middle of a song.
