5.0 out of 5 stars The Pinnacle of Dark Music, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light (Audio CD)
It took me long time to order this album and I regret waiting so long, I kept listening to a couple of their songs on YouTube and loved them. Thankfully I eventually bought this album and couldn't be happier with it. Woods have always cemented themselves firmly in the depressing dark black metal style and I think this album is the pinnacle of what they recorded.
It moves further away from the black metal sound they started with and incorporates cleaner vocals which add to the dark atmospheric tone of the album. David Gold's bassy voice is just incredible, it booms from my stereo and I just love the way it sounds. The whole album is absolutely incredible and I am always blown away by it every time I put it on. Highlights for me are 'Career Suicide' and 'Kiss My Ashes Goodbye' and the way the album ends with 'Finality' and 'Alternate Ending' borders on the heart breaking for me.
I wont dwell on the story behind Woods and this album as most people know that Gold tragically died before this album was released and before Woods could get the recognition they deserved, incidentally they won a Juno award for this album posthumously. Knowing that woods of Ypres will never record or perform again and knowing that Gold has passed away makes this album an intense listen.
My favourite album of recent years and my new favourite band. I wish I'd listened to them before David Gold had passed away.
