17 Years Ago: VINTERRIKET release Sturme der letzten stille


Concerning Sturme der letzten Stille: you know, principally I make music only for myself. I make the music I like and this depends in which mood I am. I just felt like including guitars, drums, vocals, etc. Be sure that the next stuff will again be different. I hate bands doing the same on every album. I like individuality, progression and originality. Therefore I always try to explore new musical horizons and realms. I am sure that every Vinterriket release will sound different in the future. If people like my music, OK, if not I really don't care, because I make music for myself and not for others! Vinterriket should always be dark, atmospheric and moody, and it doesn't matter which style. Just that these parameters should be fulfilled!

VINTERRIKET released the early demo tape, Stürme der letzten Stille, on this day in 2001.

The cover art was designed by Morfeus (LIMBONIC ART, DIMENSION F3H)...

I was/am fascinated by the drawings he did for Odium and Limbonic Art and I thought that a picture by him would fit demo #2 perfectly. I was talking to him on a gig here in Germany some years ago about his drawings etc., and when the release of demo #2 came closer I decided to contact him and ask about a cover. He agreed immediately and now you can see the result! I am of the opinion that it looks great! It fits, because on demo #2 I have used some astral elements besides the nature-themes, and also themes of the dark abyss of the human soul. But the basis is still Nature!
