BioWinterschatten showcases Vinterriket in both black metal and dark ambient spheres. The first two tracks are stirring, hypnotic black metal with absolute tortured vocals. The synth is executed perfectly to add a great deal of haunting atmosphere. The sound is reminiscent from the feel of Burzum's Filosofem masterpiece. The following tracks stir cold, chilling ambient soundscapes.
There are myriad ambient projects out there, but only a select few can really pull the listener in and create that encompassing feeling of solitude.
Vinterriket is one of those special few.
