W - Winterwomb review

W - Winterwomb

Self Released

W is Winter Vampyr, a one man black metal artist from Russia. His real name is Evgeniy Pilnikov. Obviously Winter Vampyr sounds better. Along with W, the guy has like half a dozen other projects he's involved in. He's a blackened workaholic. Last year he released three full lengths and an EP. What did you do creatively last year?

Ok I know, he's Russian and obsessed with isolation, the cold along with everything Winter related. Musically it's raw atmospheric black metal which isn't all mediocre. Out of the six cuts most of it is instrumental, be it ambiant or raw blastbeating rampage, with WV adding some harsh screams of anguish. Yeah taking a leak out in 30 degree below zero weather will do that to ya. 

Rating: 2/5
