This album surely is not for the faint at heart. From the very beginning this band drags you down into a whirlpool of sorrow, despair, anguish and punishment. Their music is nothing short of an exorcism, dressed in long, mostly slow songs. With elements from doom, sludge, (post-) hardcore and black metal, songs like the title track or 'The Darkest Clan' will get you down on your knees in no time, perhaps even locked-up in an isolation booth in some dark gray madhouse.
My personal favorite is 'Bombing The Witches', a grinding depressive black metal resembling piece of music. However, that sure is a tough decision to make because the songs are rather similar to each other. That sound is actually a decent representation of the state of our society, which is equally bleak and disturbed as the awesome track 'Black Hole Scum'. The horror seems endless, the punishment seems eternal and Phantom Winter perfectly illustrates that with a massive heap of distressed noise.
So yeah, you need this album. Even if you're not a fan of this stuff. Everyone needs at least one album which you can play loud while banging against the walls in complete and utter frustration and anger. Everyone needs that one album that helps him get rid of all the negative energy, where he can scream along with the sick and twisted vocals. Well, this is that album and I suggest you get your hands on it as soon as possible.
