"A well-conceived and superbly executed concept album." 4.5/5
"An extreme metal extravaganza."
- Wonderbox Metal
"As ambitious as ever, but Winterhorde zero in on what really works for them, playing up the symphonic death metal element of their sound alongside a more melodic black metal influence. An eleven-track operatic play of absolute madness."
- No Clean Singing
"Winterhorde have created a work of variety and perfection." 10/10
"This whole album is total drama. Its unconventional structure, absence of rules, contrasting moods and boundless spirit all make "Maestro" a masterpiece of invention and creativity." 9.5/10
- Ave Noctum
"Winterhorde combines a variety of sounds...which they execute expertly. Blasty melodic black metal is the backbone upon which the band's sound is built, but they are far from limited. Melodic and classic metal, as well as orchestral influences, build the broad boundaries." 4/5
- Angry Metal Guy
"This is one of those records that's just so goddamn deep you can't help but to revisit it time and time again."
- Two Guys Metal Reviews
"Winterhorde have drawn heavily from both progressive metal and black metal influences, to craft what can be considered a masterpiece of the combined genres."
- Glacially Musical
"On this fine album we get a big dose of rather dramatic symphonic metal, a pinch of melodic death metal as well as some good old power metal, all bound together with a thick layer of progressive metal."
- Roppongi Rocks
Between enchanting tenderness and brutality, amongst the fires of the underneath and the coldest fumes of the North, this is the being called WINTERHORDE. Emerged in Northern Israel back in 2001, the Progressive Extreme Metal group has been evolving, seeking to become something greater with each chord they play and record, and only the skies are the limit. Whether through ancient arts of blackened Metal through the gems of progression,
WINTERHORDE are on their way to be the next thing in articulate extremity. Throughout their career, almost spanning two decades, WINTERHORDE saw the battles on stage, performing locally in extreme Metal events and festivals, supporting acts such as DARK FUNERAL, MELECHESH, BEHEMOTH, CATAMENIA.

Following the releases of their debut albuum Nebula (2006, Burning Star Records) and Underwatermoon (2010, Twilight Vertrieb - produced by V.Santura (DARK FORTRESS, OBSCURA, PARADOX, TRYPTIKON), WINTERHORDE completed their next mysterious epos, Maestro.
