|WOODS OF YPRES Woods III: Deepest Roots and Darkest Blues Limited Vinyl LP
Woods of Ypres won a Canadian Juno Award in 2013 for Metal/Hard Rock Album of the Year.
This is the third album by the ‘bleak metal’ band led by the late David Gold and sees the band’s catalogue made widely available in physical format for the first time. The album is seen by many fans as the transitional record between the bands early black metal influenced sound and the later more commercial gothic-influenced output. The band’s sound has been compared to the likes of Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Type O Negative etc, characterised by Gold’s deep and mournful vocal style and bleakly insightful lyrical outlook.
