Woods of Ypres – Deepest Roots & Darkest Blues Reissue on Earache Records. I have become a fan of this band since discovering the music on the bands last album, Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light, which won the 2013 Juno Award for the Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year. It was great to get to work revamping the artwork for this reissue, and creating the LP layout. This was the third recording for the band.
Originally released back in 2008 on the band’s own Krankenhaus Records and long since deleted, “Woods III..” has the band at their most aggressive, with the harsh black metal sound reflecting the predominant personal lyrical approach. The doomier style that the band subsequently adopted is also hinted at here, particularly on the haunting “Your Ontario Town Is A Burial Ground”.
