Winters - S/t [Rise Above - 2006]

Winters debut ep  at times sounds like if  Marc Boland had  decided to go down the doom metal  path, or at other times it's  a indie, grunge come doom cross breed. Having it’s own very distinct sound, thats  mainly mid pace to upbeat riffing. Really  giving an interest and different turn on the  Doom genre , since everyone and their mother seems to  want to sound like Sunn0))) at the present.

It’s all nicely produced with a meaty and heavy  lo-fi flavour to the guitars, drums you really feel, with Paul Fyle’s glam gone sour with a hint of new wave vocals Cleary heard though out. Each song only lasts just over the three minute mark, which is very compact for doom.With only four tracks on offer it sadly means this is  all over too soon , here’s hoping there’s full length is on the way as Winters really do have a unique and different take on genre balancing perfectly meomberble gloomy riffing with melodic traces.

A very rewarding debut that’s both original and well written and played, just a pity it only last just over 15 mins.
