Crépuscule d'Hiver

History

Crépuscule d'Hiver is a one-man band whose essence is channeled by Stuurm (vocals, lyrics, guitars, keyboards).

The soul and influences of this project are deeply rooted in 90's black metal: mysterious, epic and shrouded in synthesizer waves of medieval keyboards soundscapes. In late December 2018, a demo called 'Songes hérétiques' was released on bandcamp with three songs along with two instrumental dungeon synth tracks.

In May 2019, Les Acteurs de l'Ombre Productions started a collaboration with Crépuscule d'Hiver to release an album in line with 'Songes hérétiques'.

N.K.L.S (In Cauda Venenum) joined the project later in the year as a drummer and bass player, two instruments that Stuurm used to compose and record digitally.

This album, titled 'Par-Delà Noireglaces et Brumes-Sinistres' consists of a sequel of 'Songes hérétiques', with a total of 7 tracks, including two songs from the demo that were rerecorded and rearranged. The others are brand-new material. This music is an ode to deep feelings of nostalgia and epic greatness of a fantasized and fantastic past, anchored and animated within and by fiction.

Heir of many black metal bands that built the musical landscape of its composer, Crépuscule d'Hiver offers a singular black metal that is deeply inspired by the dungeon synth scene. With visions of battlefields and spectral fortresses, it is a call to contemplate once again the glorious and romantic aesthetics of medieval black metal.

'Par-Delà Noireglaces et Brumes-Sinistres' will be out on September 25th, 2020, on several formats and as multiple sets.
