Pictures of Winter is a 5-piece metalcore band from Connecticut. Pictures Of Winter is another incarnation of the band Chasing Eternity, which called it quits in March of 2006. With the rise of this new incarnation come a new sound and a new goal: To combine the mesmerizing melody popularized by bands like Hopesfall and Poison the Well with the unforgiving ferocity that has characterized metalcore heavyweights like The Acacia Strain and August Burns Red. While this is the objective of many bands in the metal/hardcore scene today, Pictures Of Winter hopes to do so in their own way so as to forge a one-of-a-kind sound. Equipped with aspirations to create this new sound, and lyrics inspired by themes that transcend boundaries of time and place, Pictures Of Winter is on a mission to make a positive and lasting impact in today's music scene.

The band went through member changes in early April of 2007 with Jeff Pereira, Brian Kapinos and Jens Peterson deciding to part ways with the band. The two remaining members did not give up and pursued new members. Shortly after the departure of the two guitarists and bassist, Mike and Chris found Mike Ciervo, a great, dedicated guitarist. Shortly after Mike Ciervo joined Pictures of Winter, his brother Julian, currently in the jazz field, tried out for Pictures of Winter on bass, and showed amazing talent. After going through short stints with two lead guitarists, POW found Bill Forbes (a long time student of Oli Herbert of All That Remains) through one of the past members. Bill made their jaws drop with his awesome sweeping patterns and great lead guitar ability.

Although the band now has different members, it will most definitely hang on to the same sound, but attempt to make it more powerful, more open to other types of music and show the true potential of the band.
