Midvinter - _At the Sight of the Apocalypse Dragon_
(Metal Blade, 1998)
by: Drew Snow (4 out of 10)
Considering all of the turmoil that Midvinter went through prior to releasing this record, maybe it would've been better if they'd just broken up instead. _At the Sight of the Apocalypse Dragon_ is a generic album of standard black metal that tries to be majestic, but just ends up being merely forgettable instead. As the band churns out their eight minute "epic" songs, it's pretty easy to see right through their efforts to be "mature" and "atmospheric", and realize that they actually just "suck." I guess you could describe their music as resembling a mix of early Satyricon and Mayhem, with a little more melody thrown into some parts; but don't expect anything remotely as good, because Midvinter aren't really capable of executing anything worthy of remembrance on _AtSotAD_. Not one of my favorites.
