Desolate Winds are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "In Times Of Cold" which was released by Fallen Empire Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced atmospheric black metal riffs that use some raw and primitive elements as well as some dark sounding melodies in the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording.
Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams that have a depressive tone to them at times, while the lyrics cover winter, depression and isolation, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Desolate Winds are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "In Times Of Cold". RECOMMENDED BUY.
