Crépuscule d’Hiver is a one-man band whose essence is channeled by Stuurm (vocals, lyrics, guitars, keyboards). The soul and influences of this project are deeply rooted in 90’s black metal: mysterious, epic and shrouded in synthesizer waves of medieval keyboards soundscapes. This album consists of a sequel of “Songes Hérétiques”, with a total of 7 tracks, including two songs from the demo that were rerecorded and rearranged. The others are brand-new material. This music is an ode to deep feelings of nostalgia and epic greatness of a fantasized and fantastic past, anchored and animated within and by fiction. Heir of many black metal bands that built the musical landscape of its composer, Crépuscule d’Hiver offers a singular black metal that is deeply inspired by the dungeon synth scene. With visions of battlefields and spectral fortresses, it is a call to contemplate once again the glorious and romantic aesthetics of medieval black metal. Recommended for fans of Godkiller, Satyricon, Monolithe, Arkhon Infaustus.
