SILENT WINTER – “Empire of Sins” – new Cinematic 4k Animated video

Few weeks after the release of the first single “Gates of Fire”, the rising power metallers, Silent Winter, release one more track from their long-awaited second album “Empire of Sins”. Just like their previous videos, the new video for the same titled track is a creation of Haris Kountouris, and this time it is as a unique Cinematic 4k animated work.

Dionysis Christodoulatos is responsible for the production, mix and master of the “Empire of Sins” album that will be released on March 26th by the German label Pride and Joy on CD and will be available through all digital platforms. A self-financed vinyl release will follow.

The Greek power metallers from Thessaly, Silent Winter, released the first lyric video from their long-awaited upcoming new album “Empire of Sins” for the track “Gates of Fire”. The video was created by Harry Kountouris, who was also responsible for the equally excellent video for the song “Nightfall”, which Silent Winter released a year ago.

The band’s new album will be released on March 26th, 2021 by the German label Pride and Joy. The album includes 8 tracks plus an adaptation of the massive pop-hit of the 80’s “Leave a Light On” by Belinda Carlisle. The “Empire of Sins” album was produced by Dionysis Christodoulatos. The recordings took place at Kalovidouris Sound and Light Rec. Studio in Volos (guitars, bass, drums), while the vocals, the final mix and master took place at CNF Recordings Studio in Athens.

The track list will look as follows:
1.Gates of Fire
2.Wings Of Destiny
3.Shout
4.Mirror
5.Hunter’s oath
6.Where the river flows
7.Dragons Dance
8.Leave a light on

Silent Winter formed during the mid-90’s, in Volos, central Greece. A couple of demos were launched at that time – ‘Silent Winter’ and ‘War Of An Angel’. The band performed live shows and made some festival appearances too. The line-up changed in 2018 and their 5 track EP, ‘The War Is Here’ came to light. It included a new version of ‘Far Away’, their 1st video clip. 2019 will see a full length, 8 track album, via Sonic Age Records. ‘The Circles Of Hell’ is also now available as a lyric video clip.
