Staff review by

The Italian Avantgarde Music is on of my favorite label. And I'm not saying that for nationalism… the roster of this label includes some of the best bands actually on the scene, and the new Winds from the north are indeed worthy to be defined so.
After the debut MCD Of Entity And Mind this Norwegian band comes to us with their first full-length that is a masterpiece. The mastermind and keyboard player Andy Winter has been able to gather some of the greatest artists of the Norwegian scene such as Carl August Tidemann , Lars Eric Si , Jan Axel Von Blomberg, in order to create something really special. Reading these names you would think about a Black Metal project, but you would be wrong. To define Winds' music is not easy, as for all the albums which have that something special allowing them to go beyond the schemes; anyway we can say that it is a melancholic and deep gothic-progressive metal which meets arrangements and sonorities proper of classical music, not just metal parts alternated with violins or cellos. The hard thing is to describe with words this great achievement of Andy Winter's compositions: also when you hear the wonderful guitar of Tidemann you can have the impression that the same riff could have been written for a violin. And it is no coincidence if we can often hear these two instruments playing together.
