By means of an archetipical language, Vinterblot aims to re-enact the old chant that once connected earthly and mystical worlds, human spirit and divinity.
The band was founded during winter MMVIII by a group of young men, passionate about hiking in the Apulian woods. They grew up immersed in both the melancholy and the majesty sung by the bards of 80-90’s, such as Bathory, Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Emperor and Enslaved. So far, Black and Death metal have inspired them to pursue a unique blend of genres, bound together by a marked inclination for melody.
With two full-length studio Albums and one EP, they still persevere on their musical path, enhancing their human and magical knowledge. More moons will come…
