Weeping Winter

brantly A solid funeral dooooom LP that hits all the right aspects I love about the genre: it's 'slower than the second coming of Jesus,' ugly, crushing, grisly, icy, plodding and depressing...Cold View do add some especially cool atonal horror film keys as well....seems like an ideal soundtrack to watch a clown drown in quicksand to Favorite track: Dark December.

"I suppose that it’s not called 'funeral doom' without a reason and especially the energy-sucking effect could be considered a sign for a very solid and authentic album." 8/10 - Vendetta Metal Magazine

"[...] Weeping Winter should bleed all warmth and willpower from your spirit and leave you a cracked and wailing husk." 7/10 - Chronicles of Chaos

"Weeping Winter is the sound of sinking slowly, without hope or even desire of salvation. Stark piano melodies hide behind buzzing drones while the saddest, most hateful 80-ton turtle growls its darkness over everything." Decibel Magazine

"The Cold View is very personal music, dark with sinister, mysterious atmosphere. If you are not foreign to crews such as Sunn O))) and all kinds of Funeral Doom bands, you should reach for this release." 7/10 - Metal Centre

"A brilliant and very atmospheric Doom/Drone Metal project. [...] If you're feeling brave enough this is an excellent album to check out." "highly recommended" - Sludgelord

"In my opinion The Cold View is a very great sounding mixture of Drone and Funeral Doom Metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band." "recommended buy" - Dark Underground Music Zine

"If you want to deepen your depression in this sometimes so sick and depressive world, this is all you need to fall down completely." Droning Earth

"Weeping Winter ist ein gelungenes Drone Doom Album geworden und sollte dem Protagonisten Anreiz sein, dort anzusetzen und mehr von dieser Sorte Doom auf die Fangemeinde loszulassen. Aber Vorsicht Leute, hier ist ZUHÖREN und nicht HINHÖREN angesagt, dies ist was für Puristen und offene Geister und nichts für Allerwelts-Metaller." 8/10 - Metalglory

"Aus den melancholischen, tiefdüsteren Melodien kriechen Schmerz, Enttäuschung, Hoffnung, Sehnsucht und Quälerei hervor. Weeping Winter erweitert den Hörhorizont – und zwar ganz nah an der kalten Erdkruste. Diesen Herbst. Diesen Winter. Hören." Der schwarze Planet

"Difficile à appréhender, difficile à décrire, "Weeping Winter" reste une expérience intéressante, mais qui ne conviendra qu'à peu de personnes." 6.2/10 - Metalship
