Evoking Winds: A Multinational Band Blending Folk, Cinematic Orchestral Pieces, and Melodic Black Metal
Since 2005, the band, which has its roots in Minsk, Belarus, has members who live all over the world (the United States, Poland, Belarus, Russia, and China). Evoking Winds‘ music consists of both folk and cinematic orchestral pieces as well as melodic black metal.
Black metal with ambient dungeon synth. Low levels of repetition and diverse song patterns are common, and folk instruments frequently take the stage in the tunes.
In contrast to the characteristics of pure folk metal, it is a deeper, blacker variant of the genre that avoids jigs and reels in favor of slower, more epic lyrics. The singing continually switches between black metal and death metal vocal approaches and has more symphonic elements than other atmospheric black metal bands.
According to the band’s creator Artyom Prishchepov, Evoking Winds is an entirely non-commercial enterprise, and all of their music is freely available. Evoking Winds‘ music remained in an underground condition of minor local CD releases for many years before the band chose to reissue the music online in 2021.
