Andy Winter has been behind several noteworthy releases in the more progressive and avant-garde spectrum of the Norwegian post-black metal scene. His style of subdued, classically influenced progressive metal is probably not quite what most people think of when they hear the words Norwegian and metal mentioned together, as his music features a far more classical and progressive influenced sound than the groups of his usual co-collaborators.
Incomprehensible features Agnete M. Kirkevaag of Madder Mortem, John Haughm of Agalloch, Kjetil Nordhus of Tristania, Trail of Tears & Green Carnation, Dan Swanö of Nightingale & Bloodbath, Lars A. Nedland of Borknagar, Solefald & Age of Silence, Heidi S. Tveitan of Star of Ash & Peccatum, Paul Kuhr of Novembers Doom & Subterranean Masquerade, and Lars E. Si of Winds, Before the Dawn & Sensa Anima. Also appearing are Jan Axel von Blomberg (Mayhem, Arcturus & Winds), Carl August Tidemann (Winds & Arcturus), Øystein Moe (Winds & Ulver), Don Anderson (Agalloch & Sculptured) and Mike Young (The Devin Townsend Project). The album was produced by Andy Winter himself, mixed by Shaun Thingvold, mastered by Maor Appelbaum and features artwork by Travis Smith.
Having continued his approach of always applying a very genre-defying style, “Incomprehensible” is yet another unmistakable and unique record from Andy Winter, and one that provides a different experience altogether when compared to anything else in metal, or indeed most music.
