FESTER (Norway) “Winter of Sin” DIGI CD review

While there the children if you want the home kvlte kvlte, you will be served! Here we touch the finger at a form of absolute, sublime! So young, Abyss Records has made up his mind to reissue the debut album from 1992 Fester. Go old, lifts his legs were very high! But do a little archeology. Long ago, a young Swede named Thomas Nyquist metal moved by the excitement crackling around him, decided to start a zine saddled with the sobriquet of Putrefaction country Mag. Kvlte ! Kvlte! Stitches in Time and strength of commitment, our young hairy eventually founded the label No Fashion Records. Kvlte power spin a mile beginning of erection to our national Zoltar!

“Winter of Sin” is the second release of the label and the first to be pressed on CD. But be careful, I can already see that this is still sigh of Death Metal from Stockholm. Well actually, it’s not quite it. First, our lads are not studded Swedes and Norwegians, but especially our long-haired hell of Music offers a rather unique. Particular, use the term loosely because actually it goes back to that time between wolves and dogs when stylistic boundaries were completely porous.

Okay, but the Death of heavy, slow, this copula as well with Black Sabbath, as Bathory or Death. Florida’s influence is present especially in solos or all of these ornate bridges instrumental riffs typical of the era. Somewhere and being a little provocative, take the first album Paradise Lost, remove it the gothic atmosphere and replace it with the excitement of the glorious past Nordic warrior. He must lose one eye to see it but there’s a Viking on the mountain trying to invoke the gods. Death is therefore a good Doomy away by the epic of a black-based melodic tremolo and sublimated few passages at the keyboard, narratives and more atmospheric passages while melancholic arpeggios. And then there’s this song Crow éructée flayed by a vocalist halfway between Schuldiner and Burzum which plunges us deeper into the intricacies of Black.

From a sound point of view, our Scandinavian adventure has been remastered and thus provides sound quality quite acceptable by today’s standards. The risk still remains to be shocked for those who are accustomed Beats Bionic enriched synthetic products. The sound is good but it’s kind of good roots.

Except a few bonus live song from 1991 and produced their first demo. A title filled with enough air instrumental passages that roams on a good ten minutes. The sober but gigipack class and the book recalls a brief history of the group and the concert in question while delivering a few amusing anecdotes. Personally, I like enough to immerse myself in the context of the time.

Surprisingly, even today the proposed mix remains relatively relevant because it is quite unusual to hear such an alloy types. I have already mentioned but at the time all these beautiful streams which now cause life crises in your servant, were less marked. All these beautiful people mingled merrily without worrying about if it were Death or Black or whatever else … It must be said that in the land of the Vikings, Bathory has influenced both the Death Black.

Ultimately, we are dealing with an album prehistoric but keeps its freshness in relation to a certain conformism and platitudes that plague some of our wild world. A truly rejuvenating nostalgic for wrinkly like me and maybe an object of curiosity for the young history buffs.
