Sol Invictus - Trees In Winter (1990)

Country: United Kingdom
Record Label: Tursa
Total playing time: 43:51

Trees In Winter basically introduced me to the genre of neo-folk, and remains to be my personal favorite album by Sol Invictus. The imagery and lyrical content of Sol Invictus was strongly influenced by an explicit antipathy for materialism, Christianity, and the modern world.  This is especially noticeable throughout Trees In Winter in particular.

  1. English Murder (7:24)
  2. Sawney Bean (4:13)
  3. Gold Is King (6:42)
  4. Media (2:26)
  5. Looking For Europe (3:45)
  6. Here We Stand (4:12)
  7. Michael (3:37)
  8. Deceit (4:37)
  9. Blood Of Summer (2:59)
  10. Trees In Winter (3:51)
