Andreas Hedlund has decided, besides VINTERSORG and OTYG, to experience Metal under a different name, therefore he contacted Benny Hagglund (a session drummer for the up-mentioned projects) and founded FISSION. I find difficult to say I actually listened to Thrash Metal or Epic.... or Heavy Metal! It is rather Metal and nothing more or less. Why am I so confused though? Probably since there are so many strong VINTERSORG touches put together into a more Metallic approach, more cursive (even if not completely!), with a more alert and dynamic rhythm. I suppose there is a personal touch in the sound thanks to the vocal mixture. They actually come together with a bright rhythmic positive Metal amalgam combining an underground sound with various trends of the entire Metal/Rock spectrum. Anyway, I find this experience a little bit too modest to be noticed.
