Review

This innovative, modern twist is certainly breath of fresh air. By combining the traditional raw black metal sound, similar to early MAYHEM, with the newer, more atmospheric sound of modern black metal, WINDSWEPT are able to create something truly unique. Although some tracks sound sometimes fairly similar, WINDSWEPT stay interesting by incorporating different melodies and different improvised parts. The Great Cold Steppe is easy listening, progressing with a flow. This powerful, soul stirring album is enriched with talent and character, becoming one of the great black metal releases of the year. - 5/5
