A black metal side project of Thralldom's Killusion (aka Ryan Lipynsky), the Howling Wind released their first dense slab of experimental black metal in 2007.
Entitled Pestilence & Peril, the work featured Killusion on guitars, bass, and vocals, with Parasitus taking on percussion duties. Released on Profound Lore
, the record was well received in the extreme metal press. The band continued to spin a crawling web of proggy cult metal, with its sophomore album, Into the Cryosphere, arriving in 2010, followed by Of Babalon in 2012. ~ Chris True, Rovi
