Perpetually out of print, much sought after and universally worshipped amongst those in the know, WINTER’s „Into Darkness“ was a game-changing classic.

Formed in New York, USA circa 1988, WINTER played slow, deep and hard nuclear Doom with a Crust Punk rawness, that came across like HELLHAMMER jamming with AMEBIX. Their penchant for mammoth sized and funeral-paced, wasteland droning has become a touchstone reference for bands across the whole spectrum of underground metal.

Their pre-internet infamy led to WINTER demos being tape- traded in hallowed adoration by fans and bands alike, gaining notable fans such as Fenriz from DARKTHRONE. Deserving of their special place in the pantheon of one-off classic albums, the SWANS -like Noise and down-tuned earth-like riffs of „Into Darkness“ went on to spawn countless doom and Sludge bands, being an influence for an entire doomed generation.

The WINTER come-back show at Roadburn Festival in 2011 was massively anticipated and held a captivated audience. Packing out one of The Netherlands largest stages, that particular WINTER show, after many years in obscurity is a rare event that is still highly regarded today. The band is a rare jewel amongst collectors, and audiences alike.

„Into Darkness“ was a gateway drug to the dark depths of Sludge Metal, and now awaits a whole new throng of acolytes who bow down before the throne of heavy Doom.

This version of the album is pressed on Transparent Violet / Black Marbled vinyl (limited to 500 copies), the vinyl is housed in a thicker LP pocket cover and comes with booklet.
