Woods 4: The Green Album, the latest offering from Canadian blackened doom merchants Woods Of Ypres, has just been released in Europe and is due to hit North America on Tuesday, March 22nd.



Woods Of Ypres founding member and frontman David Gold recently discussed the writing process for the album.


“The Green Album was certainly the only album I knew how to write as it was the only thing still preoccupying what was left of my heart and brain at the time and I’m thankful that something good could come of it all, after all. The 16 songs of the album tell the story through the stages of such a journey that inevitably gets a whole lot worse before it gets any better. What starts with total life-changing devastation ends with the arrival of spring again and the promise of summer. If nothing else at all, at the time, it was enough.


“W4: The Green Album was certainly an inspired creation and has more reason to exist than anything else we’d ever written to date. It wasn’t just more music for music’s sake, but literally life and death, to me. That album is honest, about something real and based on true events. At nearly 80 minutes of music ranging from gothic doom, post-rock, sludge, prog and forest metal, listen, take what you like and leave the rest.
