"Schnee" ("snow") is omnipresent in the works of Swiss black metal artist Wintherr a.k.a. Paysage D'Hiver and turned into a four-part song cycle, released piece by piece on the compilation LP "Wurzelgeister" ('Schnee II', 2002) and on split records with Vinterriket ('Schnee I', 2003), Nordlicht and Drudkh ('Schnee III' and 'Schnee IV', 2017).
All four tracks - created within a time span of almost 20 years and dealing with different facets of the frozen element - are now available together for the first time ever on CD. They have been partly remixed and wholly remastered specially for this release.
Pressed on 180g black vinyl, Comes with printed inner sleeves and an A2 card stock insert with lyrics.
The tracks are listed sequentially with Roman numerals on the sleeve and label stickers.
With 120 minutes playing time, "Im Wald" is not only Paysage D’Hiver's longest effort so far but also another chapter in the tale of winter travel (thus the French name Paysage D'Hiver) that runs through the project’s entire work like the proverbial golden thread. In the context of his highly detailed narrative, Wintherr locates it after "Steineiche" and "Schattengang" (both 1998) which describe the beginning of the travel, and before "Das Tor" (2013), "Kerker" (1999) and "Die Festung" (1998), which are set at the end.
Paysage D'Hiver's double album "Im Wald" was recently released and immediately became a favorite among both fans and critics. Now Wintherr offers us an addendum in the shape of the EP "Im Traum", which contains two album songs as re-imagined versions.
"In my inner ear," the Swiss artist explains, "I heard deeper levels of music when recording 'Le Rêve Lucide' and 'Kaelteschauer', which are not possible to include in the limited physical audio spectrum, as it often happens with Paysage D'Hiver. So these two tracks, wherein it seemed particularly clear and intense to me, are a realization of these deeper levels for the first time."
"Im Traum" is available as limited 10" and A5 Digibook MCD.
