Lament in Winter's Night - At the Gates of the Eternal Storm CD
Black Metal from Australia, 2022 Reissue of Hells Headbangers
From Label Website:
Hailing from the ever-fertile Australian black metal underground, LAMENT IN WINTER'S NIGHT is the work of one The Seer, who has a vast array of other projects lurking in his cobwebbed soul. Of them, LAMENT IN WINTER'S NIGHT is the most prominent and prolific and, since the beginning of 2019, has seen feverish activity from The Seer, culminating in the debut album At the Gates of the Eternal Storm in 2020.
Originally released by Drowning the Light's esteemed Dark Adversary label, At the Gates of the Eternal Storm is a grand and grim summation of the noble LAMENT IN WINTER'S NIGHT aesthetic thus far. Scurrying and scrying, The Seer's attack here is hideous yet human, betraying a wounded-soul sensibility that explodes to the fore from his achingly sad riffing. From the nearly bass-less recording to his ghoulish echoes into the abyss, LAMENT IN WINTER'S NIGHT create a unique disconnect here - strangely ethereal on one hand, vicious and violent on the other, with elements deployed in perversely inverse manners - but it bears underlining that this is all done in the name of proud 'n' pure BLACK METAL. At the Gates of the Eternal Storm is nothing if not a black metal record could've hailed from the darkest recesses of the '90s.
