Jeff Phantom Winter makes me feel like I'm not alone in experiencing this gap between pain and joy. Dark, painful sounds, hatred and incomprehension. And then these wonderful, melodic warm melodies, full of love and hope. And then this riff, full of strength full of pain and despair, tears the skin from my bones. Favorite track: The Craft And The Power Of Black Magic Wielding.

Inner Reflexions You want to look away...
but cannot.
Plug your ears...
but cannot.
Sickeningly hypnotic.
Their best work to date,
seeing all the elements found in previous work, coming together brilliantly here, in sound and lyrically. Favorite track: Ripping Halos From Angels.

Summon the dark folk for the initiation of Darkness ...is our path ...is our hope ...is our love Summon the dark folk for the initiation of... „It is easy to blame the dark: the mouth of a door,
The cellar's belly. They've blown my sparkler out.
A black-sharded lady keeps me in parrot cage.
What large eyes the dead have!
I am intimate with a hairy spirit.
Smoke wheels from the beak of this empty jar. Mother of beetles, only unclench your hand:
I'll fly through the candle's mouth like a singeless moth.
Give me back my shape. I am ready to construe the days
I coupled with dust in the shadow of a stone.
My ankles brighten. Brightness ascends my thighs.
I am lost, I am lost, in the robes of all this light.“ (stolen by Sylvia Plath) ...darkness The dead bells of burning fire ring their lullaby so... We are the witches that spit on your false gods We are the witches that burn on your wooden stakes Embrace the darkness without any sentiment of guilt Always remember it's more than the absence of light Cobalt surroundings seem melted into black moss Shapeshifting sphincters celebrate what is strange and weird Snowbirds hunt silently the allmighty deathcatcher my colder self creates a halo of shivering blue and black Not all who wander are lost for eternity We all who wander are lost for eternity “The problem, unstated until now, is how to live in a damaged body in a world where pain is meant to be gagged uncured ungrieved over. The problem is to connect, without hysteria, the pain of anyone's body with the pain of the world's body.” 
― Adrienne Rich
I would rather be a rising ape Than pretending to Be a falling angel You never were an angel I would rather be a dead fool In your eyes a dead fool A simulation of a lie Take your false halo and die When angels go bad they seem to be worse than anyone else Pretending a devil appeared to collect their souls My child, there is no devil with any interest in any souls The so called angels are just too craven to face their darkness Everything around me seems to be cold, Dead and crushed into pieces Those who sing about monsters are candid and You angeltongued freaks are a mess So I take my claws, aim high and I swing with pleasure above your heads Ripping halos from your rotten angelskulls  Your rotten angelskulls Let your halo shine brighter than the stars So your filthy dead soul cannot be seen "The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame." Oscar Wilde
Frostcoven 05:25
No god can help you here No sun will ever shine We are usurpers of the night Dark witches of the frost On bearbacks there we ride The ghosts who haunt us scream in pain Tell us Creature Tell us What do thy want Tell us Creature Tell us What do thy need Angst essen Seele auf Da wir es ihr befohlen Tell us Creature Tell us What do thy want Tell us Creature Tell us What do thy need Frost corrosion No emotion Enemies of our enemies Try to destroy us But we have the spells to break them down This is the coven Let dark frost shine "Man muss zumindest versuchen zu beschreiben, was man nicht verändern kann." Rainer Werner Fassbinder
I am the moon I am the stars I am your eyes I am your scars I am the unholy daughter of Lucifer I am a book I am the earth I am here to give you fire I am hope I am desire I mix it with some esotheric bullshit I know you people like to be fooled I kiss the day away I make your lungs bleed if you are my enemy My enemy Will you trust me, will you need me, will you love me, will you burn me Will you kill me See, thus it is done! Make ten of one, And two let be, Make even three, And rich thou ‘It be. Cast o’er the four! From five and six (The witch’s tricks) Make seven and eight, ’Tis finished straight! And nine is one, And you are gone. "Man muß seinen Feinden verzeihen, aber nicht früher, als bis sie gehenkt worden." Heinrich Heine
Beware; for we are fearless, and therefore powerful. We are alone and miserable. There is love in us the likes of which you've never seen. There is rage in us the likes of which should never escape. If we are not satisfied in the one, we will indulge the other. If we cannot inspire love, we will cause fear. langsam You are our creator, but we are your masters; Obey! We are malicious Because we are miserable. We are doomed to live. Dark science made us be. “There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand.” 
― Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
I read about a voyager who did not travel at all. Into a darkness that was brighter than a star. And the voyager was me and you were the voyager. You hummed a song that I could not identify. The blackest crow lead us the way. And in the end we knew it all. Aaaaaah Godspeed voyager Aaaaaaah Godspeed voyager The blackest crow lead us the way. And in the end we knew it all. The blackest crow was deaf and blind. The blackest crow was not on our side. I am falling Through a well Then I drown. But I hoped To break my spine Because you sang It's a less painful Way to die. “Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.” 


On Into Dark Science Phantom Winter return with more brute force than ever. After CVLT (2015) and Sundown Pleasures (2016) they now follow up. With their third full-length Phantom Winter found a new language to express extreme heavyness where other bands from the same genre already resigned. They channel depression, anger and severity on an authentic manner that goes it`s own way regarding vehemence.

The record contains six songs about your inner monsters, retaliating
ogres and the omnipresence of darkness that we all carry within us. “It is a journey through the dark worlds of authors Sylvia Plath and Mary Shelley. Into Dark Science is a way to accept and channel my inner demons to create something worthwhile and productive” says Andreas Schmittfull who is the mind of Phantom Winter. Six chapters who tell a story of a being who lives in a world which keeps most people paralysed.

Emotional brutalness combined with a gigantic and back-breaking mix
of low-tuned atmosphere and riff-orientated brutality in symbiosis with pounding and sometimes cyclic drumming which takes the audience
further into a maelstrom. Just now this gloominess reflects in the arcane and mysterious design by Hummel Grafik who is once again responsible for the artwork.

Into Dark Science will be released on 2nd March 2018, digitally and on CD and LP.
