Twist And Shout

After the last album "Pale Horse" in 2021 as well as the re-release or best-of album "Looking Back" (2022), the project Winter releases the next longplayer with "Fire Rider". While "Pale Horse" was still in the predominantly dark gothic rock area, Winter clearly steps on the creative accelerator pedal with the new songs and surprises with a very exciting mixture between said Goth sound ("Unholy Blood", "Into The Void" feat. Florian Grey) and almost Classic Rock in the style of the 80s, as the title song "Fire Rider", the proverbial "Children Of The 80s" or the first single "Pray" show. Almost style-defining for the mix on the album is the cover version of the Sisters Of Mercy song "Under The Gun", which also moves between the different styles in the original version. Musically, "Fire Rider" is overall more courageous, sometimes a bit more aggressive than it's predecessor but also extremely catchy. Symptomatically the song "When All Is Said And Done" can be mentioned here, which perfectly combines a wonderful "Chris Isaak" vibe in the verse and groovy up-tempo rock sound in the chorus.
