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

By Kai Scheibe

Again, the time machine is lost – it goes back to the spring of 1992. A few Norwegian boys have recorded nine tracks, the whole “Winter of sin”, and still a rather new label called No Fashion Records saw that this came on the market. Funny, more than an insider tip was never proof. But when you look at the NFR after following releases, the Pavlov effect immediately ensures massive salivation: Marduk, Dissection, Unanimated, Katatonia, Merciless, Lord Belial, Dark Funeral, Decameron, Mörk Gryning, Allegiance … the Scandinavian experts need first a few drops of heart. Almost 20 years later, No Fashion is indeed long gone, but other people remember the early releases: Abyss Records have “winter of sin” wrapped in a digipak, a live track as a bonus packed so tight with it and give again a stage. They are certainly not a mainstream food, but also no 08/15-Skandinavien-Stangenware. Fixed spit slow Black Metal is not free of built-in melodies or leads sent from acting somehow odd and can be called more bulky than catchy, it. Great cinema is the nagging-drooling-howling singers, is certainly the already tormented by a few articulate sounds the concentrated attention. Reminds me a bit at the corrupted guy who at Bluuurgh (also have 1992 a wonderfully sick Death Metal album “In My Embrace” was published) was on the mic. “Winter of sin” is eating slowly and steadily through the ear turns, but it also tense after some playing time before, given the less accessible arrangements and the nerve-tiring vocals. Overall, however, an interesting album that deserves a hearing test.
