Out Now

Recorded in the spring of this year in St-Eustache, Quebec, Canada at Dirgevows Studios and Produced and Engineered by evillair, Nordicwinter still manage to create a grim atmosphere with latest output Desolation

album art and layout: Dirgevows Studios.

Opener “Forest of Despair” is not only the longest track but is a perfect introduction to the album, piano laden melodies run throughout and for me is the heartbeat of the track with really compliment the darker and heavier aspects that follow. “A Shadows Veil” is slower and purposeful to begin with gradually building to faster past and immediately back again. I particularly enjoyed the cleaner guitar parts on this track.

Atmospherically “In Solitude” really stands out for me for being the highlight track it’s rare for me now to feel such an emotional connection immediately but this track has managed to do just that and the immediate follow up is the incredibly short instrumental “Fall to Ruin” which is perfectly placed as it makes a great closer to the previous track and also is a great lead into “All that Remains”.

Penultimate track ” Tomb of Silence” is a track that if listened to under the right condition is sheer perfection for me this involved mostly darkness but with the just the flicker from the black candlelight.

The album then fades away with the final instrumental “Last Rites” which leaves you wanting more and that shroud of darkness doesn’t return until you hit repeat all and go through it all over again.

Heartrendingly bleak and desolate
