The Unrested EP
Formed in 2008 in Bergen (Norway), the music from VINTERBRIS is highly inspired by groups such as Primordial and Moonsorrow while retaining its own atmosphere and originality. After having released an EP and a self-titled full-length, the band is now back with Solace, a desolate and melancholic record with the backbone of true Norwegian black metal. With a lyrical concept centered around one man’s struggle with self-acceptance, existence and place in nature, the soundscapes of Solace are complete.
Here’s what Archaon from Norwegian Black Metal unit 1349 has to say about Vinterbris: “From the west coast of Norway comes the storms, the rains and recently, an outstanding young constellation called Vinterbris. A mixture of dark well-executed metal, at times almost meditative, which will ensure those Nordic chills down your spine. In addition to serving Nordic metal’s future a more multidimensional approach to their art, Vinterbris are keeping the music on the track of excitement. Make sure to catch this act if you’re given the chance – they are a blinding live-force too.”
Drawing process for the artwork of
Norwegian artist Kim Holm conceptualized and drew the interior art to “Solace” (Vinterbris’ sophomore album) over a couple of hours on 17th March 2014. Each drawing was fully drawn only to the song it represents, trying to keep the rhythm and feel of the music. Nothing in this video is sped up or otherwise altered.
