Alpine Metal (Austria)

While the debut album "Vinsta Wiads" (2017) portrayed an "Impending Darkness" in the Alpine mountains, Austrian metal innovator VINSTA now focuses on wintry landscapes with the new album "Drei Deita" ("Three Foreboders").

Multi-instrumentalist Christian Höll continues where he left off: his compositions blend epic melodic Death Metal with acoustic folk passages into landscape-painting music of its own kind. When was the last time you heard hammered dulcimer and yodeling in harsh metal - and it worked?!

VINSTA's second album tells the story of a wanderer facing the forces of nature, taking up traditional motifs and the primeval dialect of the Salzburg Alps. At the end of his seemingly errant hike through the Alpine winter world, the protagonist meets three foreboders and finds himself confronted with perspectives larger than (human) life...

Well-respected Austrian artist Irrwisch created the art design for "Drei Deita", presenting a fresh take on familiar aesthetics.
