Vinterbris are a band from Norway that plays a very melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Solace" which will be re-issued in September by Triton's Orbit.
Acoustic guitars start off the album along with some melodic leads making there presence known a few seconds later which also leads up to a heavier musical direction and when t he music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard as well as some deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear touches of melodic death metal in the bands musical style and the fast riffs also use a decent amount of tremolo picking and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a touch of folk music.
Vinterbris plays a musical style that is mostly in the melodic tradition of Swedish black metal while the folk and melodic death metal elements makes the songs stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Vinterbris are a very great sounding melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dysphora" "The Aurora Of Despair" and "Euphoria". 8 out of 10.
