Experimental/Post Metal

4 stars The most experimental of In the woods releases, even flirting with avantgarde leanings in a few moments. At the same time,the record is not easy to dive in and you will need more listenings to remember most of the moments. There are no short simple tracks and also black metal shrieks and brutality is gone. Keyboards and easier sounding guitars can be heard most of the time. Music is mainly slowly paced but not overly doom, although it stays heavy. Melodies are not in the foreground, it is more about atmosphere and experimentation.

Best tracks in my opinion are the first one, with crushing guitars on one side, soothing violins in the middle and nice vocal cooperation between males and females. The last epic suite has a repeating motive with female vocal and rising keyboard tone. This is an avantgarde metal track with brief excursions into doom/black/heavy/progressive metal but still prevailingly atmospheric metal. Guitar riffs are astonishing but still, you need to listen to the entire suite many times to enjoy this masterpiece of progressive atmospheric metal.
