3 stars The final Woods of Ypres album finds David Gold and Joel Violette steering the group's sounds in the direction of doomy, spacey, blackened gothic metal as opposed to the black metal they had previously been known for, right down to David Gold's vocal delivery sounding really quite reminiscent of Peter Steele's vocals from Type O Negative. Sadly, like Steele himself, Gold would end up dying suddenly and unexpectedly following the completion of this release, effectively ending the Woods of Ypres, so Woods 5 has the unenviable task of standing as the final musical statement of the group; to this extent, it's reasonably successful, though to be honest Type O Negative did the whole Type O Negative thing a bit better.
