Prog Reviewer
4 stars Winter-themed atmospheric black metal isn't novel to ColdWorld - Paysage d'Hiver have focused on it for much longer - but Georg Börner's black metal project distinguishes itself by its depressive take on the microgenre, borrowing the morose lyrical obsessions of depressive black metal and setting them in the stark, frigid landscape of the musical offering here. Georg reveals himself to be a highly capable multi-instrumentalist, and like the best atmospheric black metal the overall presentation really sparks the imagination and conjures up vivid images of white-out snowscapes. Atmospheric black metal is a crowded little niche, but this album establishes a place for ColdWorld in the wake of predecessors such as Paysage d'Hiver and Burzum.
Warthur | 4/5 |
