GODEN (WINTER) Drops Sludgy, Doomed New Song "Twilight"

Subscribe to Metal Injection on

Goden, the band headed up by guitarist Stephen Flam (Winter, ex-Serpentine Path), has unveiled its existence to the world with its debut song "Twilight." Flam built Goden's sound from leftover Winter riffs and even named the band after a song from Winter's 1993 album Into Darkness. Basically if you were ever hoping for more Winter, here's your chance.

Pre-orders for Goden's debut album Beyond Darkness are available here.

Goden is the spiritual successor to Winter, a band that has been heavily influential and highly revered in the metal underground since its inception and treasured demos. A long-awaited continuation of what Winter would have been from co-founder Stephen Flam’s vision, the new album “Beyond Darkness” throws us into an existential voyage out of the past and into the future. A familiar yet distinctive new opus that expands the unmapped shadow world that Winter once opened in our nightmares.

A soundtrack that takes the listener on a dark and ominous journey, Beyond Darkness is a conceptual deep dive into wildly unexplored and unknown sonic territory. The story has three characters, each with different symbols: Stephen Flam as “Spacewinds”, the time and space in which these characters dwell; Vas Kallas as “NXYTA (Goddess of Night)”, lead vocalist and the darkness: Tony Pinnisi as “The Prophet of Goden”, who speaks in the name of Goden and is the light, plays keyboards and also played in Winter. Beyond Darkness is a tale of the dark and the light, set to a score of heavy music.

The artwork was conceived by Eva Petric, a Slovene multimedia artist based in Vienna, Austria and New York. Eva worked with Stephen Flam, creating a visual story book within the LP/CD booklet that the listener can look at while they are consumed by this heavy sound trip.

Stephen Flam leaves us in the outer blackness and inner gloom with these last words as ethereal guidance: “I hope you enjoy this endeavor – Listen with a free and open mind… Journey now Beyond Darkness”
