The history of Spell of Dark began in December 2009 during a night in the cold southern deserts.

Its founder - V T - also participates in other bands.

The main idea behind the project is to show the beauty of nature, and to allow V T to express the state of his soul through music.

After a long search for the right genre, the first EP "Forever Winter" was released in 2013 and well received by fans. It was followed by the two full length albums “Чёрная скорбь” (“Black Sorrow”) and “Ashes of Forgotten Dreams” in 2014 and 2015.

After travels in 2017, V T composed the EP "Journey into the Depths of Winter", which is dedicated to the cold and winter, and now being reissued on CD with a bonus track to introduce Spell of Dark to fans beyond the Russian borders.

The CD is released as part of the Northern Silence Underground Series and comes as Collector’s Edition in Digipack, limited to 500 copies.

Reviews:

"Overall, it’s a powerful and moving album that really does seem to reflect the soul of the composer, as well as the stark images of winter, that can be both vivid and desolate at the same time. Cold can be absolutely numbing. Snow can be both glorious and destructive. Winter can last for what seems like forever. The whispered vocals seem to play with these themes the best; harsh screams might have take it to a different level. The subdued sound is one that works best in the quietness of your solitude, giving you pause to reflect. But a word of warning: too much contemplation into your dark side could consume you."
