Neverending Winter are a band from Western Siberia, Russia that plays a progressive form of black metal with elements of folk and crust punk and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Hus".
Acoustic guitars and folk instruments start off the album and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams and when the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can b e heard and also gives the songs a more raw feeling.
Elements of crust punk and d beat can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion as well as the songs bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, most of t he tracks are very long and epic in length and also bring in a decent amount of progressive structures.
Neverending Winter plays a style of black metal that is very raw and progressive while also mixing in elements of crust punk and folk to create something very different, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover Siberian nature and and the sense of life in people from that area.
In my opinion Neverending Winter are a very great sounding progressive black metal band with elements of folk and crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "By Snowridges" and "Sib Ir". 8 out of 10.
