THE NEW EPOCH OF BLACK METAL = VARDAN !!! VARDAN Stand at the Forefront of the Modern Black Metal - Doom - Atmospheric Scene. Breaking expectations, Bending boundaries, Destroying the Norm... Treading NEW ground for the Entire Black Metal genre... while all the way forging a new Path that is Uniquely Vardan's!!! VARDAN continues his dominance of the underground with "Winter Woods". Chronologically the 12th album in the one-man band's vast discography, "Winter Woods" is one of VARDAN's most appropriately titled records. Literally sounding like its namesake, "Winter Woods" is a blizzard of chilling misery set in suicidally slow motion: a heaving, humbling mass of brittle-but-overwhelming riff set to catatonic stun, with forever-echoing layers of chorused guitar rising like shadows amongst the whiteout gloom. Songs build to a trance-inducing crescendo, and then die a protractingly slow death...and the walk through "Winter Woods" ends with your demise, at the hands of VARDAN.
