'Adveniat Hiems' formed in 2008 and is based in Milan, Italy.
The band is dedicated to the production of short concept albums (about 20 minutes each) about northern mythology and themes from the nord-european folklore.
The basic lineup consists of three people and is integrated with session singers/musicians when needed.
The three members of the band have been working together before, as part of the band "Lustnotes", that stopped its activity in 2006, after releasing the album "Graveyard ballades" (produced by Cimitero Records and distributed by Masterpiece). Thanks to this experience, they had already succeeded in the task of melting their different musical inspirations, going from classical black metal (Burzum, Carpatian Forest) to the symphonic edge of it(Dimmu Borgir, Enslaved e Novembre), so they can start right away with the realization of their project.
The band bases its activity of composition in a room they rent in Milan, where every aspect of their creation is discussed: music, lyrics and graphics. This working style lets the band realize a fully coherent product, that expresses in a complete and organic manner the concept around which the album is centered.
