Darkness and cold. Eventually, as winter yields to spring, my need and desire to toss those words around will diminish. Which is a shame, because let’s face it: black metal is amazing. Few genres force listeners to fully immerse themselves in the environment constructed around them like some of the black metal greats have done. So, while the snow continues to fly—somehow… even as I write this on the night of March 3—I’m going to seize every opportunity to revisit some of this amazing work. This time, I’m going to dig into the incredible work that is Vinterland’s Welcome My Last Chapter, one of the most prized pieces from the aforementioned style of metal in my collection.
