Bastille Day. I Think I'm Going Bald. Then I heard the news Winter was recording an album! This would prove my point. This was going to change what heavy was. There was no way this band would become part of the long list of bands that "pussied out" with the release of their debut album. Lastly this would shut my friends mouths up once and for all I thought to myself and I waited eagerly for the day to come where I could buy every single vinyl press of what was surely to be the undisputed champ of heavy releases.
I was right. This is beyond heavy. Truly almost inconceivably heavy. I have waited a long long time to try and put into words exactly what this great band and great album have meant to me over the years.
If your taking the time to read this review and truly understand the time frame of the release I will try my best to justify all of my previous statements of what we have here and then some. Starting off this album is the intro "Oppression Freedom" which by all accounts to the unknowing listener will almost feel like the equivalent of suffocating yourself with a plastic bag while listening to a record that is caught on a groove skipping over and over.
Heavy thick power chords are held as the repetition of the main riff gets the listener moving at a crawl. The first thing prominent about what you are about to hear is the utter almost shocking heaviness of the guitar tone. This is truly an unsurpassed triumph even by today's standards of the heaviness of releases that dominate the underground scene. Then there's the drum kit. I have never heard a drum tone recorded on anything in my life that is quite like this. The drums as well as the drummer just have to be heard to be believed.
Picture a losing army marching back to a war torn, snow covered, bombed out city they once called home and these are what the drum beats would sound feel like. This drum sound is dominating but not over bearing throughout every second of this album. Remember this is a doom band and if the beat gets boring the whole album will not mesh well.
The drums are the glue that holds the whole release together and not for one second do they get boring or "plain" in any description of the word. This drummer nails every song. There is an eerie echo on every slam of the kit. The cymbals are perfectly placed and a perfect sounding accent to the gloomy suppressing feel of this record.
The album starts off with "Servants Of The Warsmen" which is as fast a song as your going to get here. A nice little "pick me up" for lack of a better phrase from what you just went through with the intro. The vocals kick off with the singer screaming "Rise" as you almost feel dominated by the power that is felt with every word he sings. My god can this really be that heavy you say? Yes it can, and is. The vocals on every song give one a feeling of hopelessness and despair unsurpassed by any band before and any band since.
His voice is a sullen grimacing reminder of all hope being lost. This is the soundtrack to all lost battles and wars. Every dirty disgusting moment of humanity at its worse.
Every song is sung perfectly and every word describes in an almost grandiose "Knights of the Round Table" sort of way the situation that this band is singing about. Domestic handling time.

Some of the lyrics are quite meaningful, while other songs are a bit tacky, but this could have been avoided with more emotion and a more dynamic vocalist.
The fact that his singing is quite nasally doesn't help either. The band is strong enough to do better than this with more variety and by adding more progressiveness to their music, which tends to lack in most of the album. Anyway, it ends up as having an overall average feel to it by the end, so it gets 3 stars. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker.
