There is only a handful of bands with the gift of adapting to the constantly changing musical environments but still keeping their unique identity. New Model Army is one of them and have proven that ability during the whole course of their fourteen albums.
“Winter” finds the band from Bradford in unhurried vibes not very different than “Between Dog And Wolf” yet more creepy and powerful as a score for a post-apocalypse film. In the opening track “Beginning” they disembark the mother ship and continue with atmospheric but heavy soundscapes such as “Burn The Castle” or the bowieish “Echo November”. And yes, there’s some good old folk in “Winter” and “Die Trying”. Again, political to the core; New Model Army will spread the militant sparkle till the end of time and beyond. And this is a feature known by their fans and respected by the rest (of the wicked…).
