2 x LP Box Set | "Into Darkness"
2020 | SVART RECORDS
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. Perpetually out of print, much sought after and universally worshipped amongst those in the know, WINTER’s "Into Darkness" was a game-changing classic.
"Into Darkness" originally was released on CD in the year 1990 on FUTURE SHOCK RECORDINGS from the U.S.A. .
Limited edition of 400 copies on White vinyl (already the second pressing of this great Box Set), the ultimate edition on vinyl ! Housed in a heavy-duty slipcase, the package features a replica of "Into Darkness "LP with original cover layout, the demo "Eternal Fros"t making its vinyl debut plus a thick magazine with WINTER memorabilia.
