WINDSWEPT (featuring members of DRUKDH) stream new track, “SHROUDED IN PALE SHINING, SO SLEEPS INFINITE ANCIENT STEPPE”

DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

WINDSWEPT, the Ukrainian black metal band featuring DRUDKH mastermind Roman Sayenko are streaming the second new track taken from their debut full-length, ‘The Great Cold Steppe’. The track, hailed as “an intense, aggressive song, propelled at a racing pace by the nearly relentless fusillade of V.‘s blast-beats and the deep flying pulse of the bass notes… Those who want to be lit up by a musical bonfire, press play below.” is titled “Shrouded In Pale Shining, So Sleeps Infinite Ancient Steppe”, and is streaming now at No Clean Singing.

Paying homage to the Ukrainian black metal scene’s bitter, icy roots, WINDSWEPT draw inspiration from the unforgiving nature of the Eastern winter steppes. Unlike the current melodic undercurrents found in DRUDKH’s latest outputs, ‘The Great Cold Steppe’ is a severe album, raw and unflinching.

‘The Great Cold Steppe’ will be released worldwide on March 31. Pre-orders for the album are available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop

Track List:
1. Black Horizon Is the Gates of a Blizzard
2. Shrouded in Pale Shining, So Sleeps Infinite Ancient Steppe
3. The Stars Are Cold and Indifferent, Sow Their Gleaming Ashes
4. The Great Shepherd Rides His Storms
5. Blinding and Bottomless Abyss Is Howling (click to stream, also available on Spotify)
6. A Spiteful Wind Buries All the Lonely Whispers

Written and recorded in only three days without rehearsals, ‘The Great Cold Steppe’ showcases evocative melodic riffs cascading against a wall cacophonous drums alongside Sayenko’s most powerful vocal delivery to date, invoking palpable, unchained fury. ‘The Great Cold Steppe’ sees SAYENKO and co. carrying forth the torch for the genre, proving that malignant, fierce black metal is as extreme and scathing as ever before. 

WINDSWEPT news and updates will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the DRUDKH Facebook page.
