Mixture of Gothic Metal and Doom Metal from Italy. The band took their name from a sonnet by William Shakespeare and present the listener with a mixture of fragile melodies and sad doom. The band uses violin, keys and also the occasional acoustic guitar to get their sad message across. Female and male vocals (clean, whisper and grunts) are also mixed, but the male vocals seem to dominate the music. Unlike most metal bands, who are dominated by males, with perhaps one female vocalist, How like a Winter divides the duties equally, consisting off 3 females and 3 males.
