Woods Of Ypres was a Canadian Black/Doom metal band that started back in 2002, out the mind of David Gold, and that in their history recorded 5 albums the last titled Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light one released under Earache Records in February of 2012. The band’s sound is a mixture of music that pull from bands like Agalloth & Katatonia, but with a musical twist unique given by the powerful lyrics of David Gold, who died last December in a car accident near Ontario, Canada.
Their last album is a 11 song trip to darkness and melancholic musical passages. The songwriting is beyond words, definitely another page to the legacy left by David Gold. a great album from a great band.
