In The Woods...


Experimental/Post Metal

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars The doomiest album of the three released by In the Woods, and also less experimental than Omnio. There are however, some new influences, for example the first track "Closing in" has some industrial subtones. "Cell" and "Vanish in the absence of virtue" are absolutely mournful with slow rhythm, sad female voice and ominous chords, while the latter song sounds very much like coming from "My dying bride" + female voice.

But also "Basement corridors" does not bring much hope with dark bass guitar, violin and female vocals that express disappointment."Dead man's creek" is mixing country guitar slides with doom metal.

This is a fine album to finish the first era of In the Woods and the doomiest one. For a progressive mind, there is not much to explore, so 3 stars, otherwise 4.
