Throughout life, it is inevitable to encounter inner tornadoes and psychological storms that stir up the mind and directly affect both their own lives and the lives of their loved ones. But, imagine if an experience led you to such a strong alternative belief that it ingrains the thought process within you that it is indeed earnest and true? Going beyond the surface to musically portray an artful interpretation of an experience shocking the world of an individual leading two alternatives lives through a dissociative identity disorder, Florida Progressive rockers, Winter Calling, have dabbled into their imaginations to create an eye and mind-opening visual masterpiece that dives deep into the chaos and clutter.
Reflective of the experience, standout lyrics such as “I came alive and she can’t deal with it”, truly showcase how deep within the trenches of dissociative identity disorder that this 40-year-old woman who is suffering has fallen.
Winter Calling released their sophomore album, ‘Faces’, back in 2016 which features “Not Like You” and was received with praise from a variety of outlets and listeners worldwide. The video features a guest appearance by renowned Porcupine Tree and Fish guitarist, John Wesley, who has embedded his name in the game ever since the early 80’s. ‘Faces’ is a dynamic and fierce delivery that is screaming the names of listeners who steer toward bands such as Opeth, Nevermore, and Dream Theater.
Winter Calling is in the midst of a transitional period that is indeed going to end in a breakthrough for the ages. There are bands that come out of the woodwork who put their all into their lifework and are deserving of the spotlight, and Winter Calling is one of those. Whether you catch the guys on the list of a rock festival near you or simply drop by their YouTube page to hear for yourself, I assure you that it will be worthy of your time.
