Completely mesmerizing from start to finish, there’s virtually not a second here that won’t win you over. Just when I was getting a sense of “I’ve seen it all” when it comes to black metal, Im Wald restored my passion and love for the genre in a single, but massive 120-minute fell swoop.

The Needle Drop

Im Wald stretches Paysage d'Hiver's most threadbare material to an arduous two hours.

Two hours of utter destruction and devastation has never sounded so beautiful.

Wintherr started the Paysage d'Hiver project over twenty years ago, and since then he has only been releasing demos, and doing so very infrequently. Each one, from his debut Steineiche in 1998 to his last release Das Tor in 2013, have added something to his sound. While he has very rarely shifted drastically from the usual Burzum-tinged atmospheric black metal that you would expect from him, each release up to now ... read more
Utter chaos and apocalyptic torment has never sounded so amazing.
