Long Winters' Stare


tarting in 1998 the atmospheric Doom/Goth Metal band Long Winters' Stare, consisting of Madrigal (guitar/vocals), Scarab (keyboards/drums/contrabass/vocals) and Imperial of Krieg (additional vocals), released their Cold Tale Eternal (1998) premier opus in a style they dubbed "symphonic experimental dark metal". From this, the world was introduced to their formula of mixing Death Metal with progressive and classical music influences incorporating string passages, keyboard, guitar and piano. They also threw in Death Metal type growls with spoken verse and operatic high notes; the net result became deep Gothic overtones and a unique experience to the listener. But it would be Before The Dawn So Go the Shadows Of Humanity (1999) that would see them on 'Dragon Flight Recordings', an upstart indie label out of Rhode Island U.S.A.; national exposure followed. But just as they were on the climb they announced their split after the release of The Tears Of Odin's Fallen (2000) featuring Deirdra Faith added on vocals.
