Ah, my weakness for one album, 90′s, black metal bands rears it’s obsessive head again. This time my compulsion comes in the form of Finnish band Vintersemestre. Besides a demo, which most of it’s songs found it’s way to this album, this is their only full-length album. Not just that, but I can’t seem to find any info on any of the band members being in any other bands after or before. They just came, put out this awesome album and left, back into the Finnish landscape. As far as the music goes, it reminds me of early Dark Funeral but better. Fast as fuck, insane vocals, sweet, simple, melodic guitars and ever-present keyboard atmospherics and orchestration. It’s like a hodgepodge of Scandinavian black metal topped off with that sweet mid 90′s melodic riffage that I love so much.
