3 stars Winds debut EP Of Entiy And Mind is a mix of various metal genres and prog rock. Itīs an ok classical inspired prog metal album, but I donīt fall on my tail because of the big names in the band with this release. Itīs good but nothing more.

The music is centered around the classical piano from Andy Winter and the beautful voice of Lars Eric Si. The music is pretty much progressive metal while I think the vocals from Lars Eric Si fits more in the progressive rock genre. The music and the vocals fit well together though.

What I think is very interesting here is that Hellhammer is the drummer. The drummer from the infamous Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, playing prog metal with a very nice sounding clean singing Lars Eric Si ? Well it goes to show that the man has a very diverse musical taste and his drumming here is of course flawless as it is in any other band he has ever played in ( there are numerous).

Personaly I think the music is a bit generic and especially the guitar riffs leave me a bit cold. The classical guitar soloing is a bit too Yngwie Malmsteen inspired for my taste on this release without reaching the excellence of Yngwie. Well the music is not a show of project and every part of the music serves the whole.

3 stars is all I can give here as I think Winds still need something to give me a special experience. They are innovative though and deserves the good stamp.

Here there is no fury beside that of feelings. Everythi ... (read more)
