Kings Winter: With crushing riffs and catchy melodies…..

Kings Winter - Edge Of Existence

The band states, «Looking for melodic heavy metal with crushing riffs and catchy melodies? Look no further because that is exactly the sound that you will get from Kings Winter».

More melodies and heavier at the same time? While it may seem contradictory at first, this is the best description for the stylistic evolution which Kings Winter has undergone in the two years since their debut EP Forging The Cataclysm. While the foundation of melodic heavy metal remains, the keyboards move significantly into the background on the new album and leave more space for powerful guitar riffs, which are repeatedly contrasted with catchy guitar leads, often reminiscent of Scandinavian melodic death metal.

The debut album Edge Of Existence is completed by the multi-layered vocals of frontwoman Jule Dahs, who shows all facets of her voice ranging from classic clean vocals to a powerful rock voice, with occasional growls added to the mix.

«Living systems are never in equilibrium. They are inherently unstable. They may seem stable, but they’re not. Everything is moving and changing. In a sense, everything is on the edge of collapse».

(Michael Crichton)

«I read this quote by chance at the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and was shocked by its relevance to the current situation,” Tobias comments on the creation of the album title. “A little more than a year ago, no one would have believed that we would experience such restrictions in private and public life. But that only shows how unstable this living system, that we are a part of, really is and how one event that might appear small at first glance, can have global consequences».

As soon as playing concerts is possible again, fans of the band will also have the opportunity to experience Kings Winter live on stage for the first time. «Shortly after the EP was released, we got the first messages asking when and where we could be seen on stage. We had never really thought about it beforehand, but after all the positive feedback for Forging The Cataclys and with this new set of songs in hand, we hope to put together a live band over the course of this year so that we can play our first gigs whenever things return to normality», says Jule Dahls about the plans for the future of the band.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (7105 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
